Wategeus – cleaning a light box and repairing the mast

31st March 2020 – I cleaned the first of two light boxes for the Tordino. They are the old boxes from the Arma, wel covered in paint…

I repaired the mast. It is a temporary solution, but I hope it last until the Corona period is over and I can buy another one.

And the last job for the evening was cleaning a porthole for my front door.

Watergeus – Cleaning the deck

28th March 2020 – I’m getting bored with no wood left to work. My deck was a mess and I cleaned it with a high pressure cleaner, removing old paint and rust. I also cleaned the little boat and my hatches where I had been working the last couple of days to restore the light cases for Tordino.

Watergeus – Painting

24th March 2020 – I started painting the workshop. I finished the ceiling with t&g before I could paint. Since I ran out of wood, the walls will have to be finished another time.

In the late evening, I chipped some rust from the big anchor. I had no energy left to take an electric tool. So I jus used a hammer. 

Tordino – Lights and screens

12th March 2020 – I mounted the light bulbs and the brackets for the televisions in the hold.  Nearly ready!

The Keersluis is locked since yesterday and will remain locked until Saturday. I have an 86 meters ship next to me. 

Watergeus – Door and wall

8th March 2020 – Today the door was mounted between the workshop and the technical room.  The wall was finished and I started working with t&g. The door is similar to the ones in the living accommodation. I always kept a spare door and now, after 12 years I can finaly use it. Never throw anything away!
