Reflections on my daily life around the water

9th November 2020 – Yesterday I was cruising on the water with and old boat, today I’m working on my own little yacht Stern, sleeping in my houseboat and thinking about how to paint my museumship. This is pretty much what I’m doing lately. Working on my own ships or talking to friends and making even more plans. I’m glad to have a good hobby, certainly in periods like this where everyone is a bit more down!

The only bit I am missing are those maritime events in Holland…

Stern – Working on the kitchen and outside painting

7th November 2020 – I started early in the morning, mounting the last kitchen cupboard door, finishing the ceiling and the wood around two windows. There were many people walking outside, it was dry and nice weather, so I switched to the outside, painting my railing. It took me more time then expected.

In the evening, I experimented with the dark red paint. It was no success at all! 

Stern – Kitchen

5th November 2020 – Early in the morning, I cut the second sheet of plywood for the kitchen cupboard. A small job, but now it already looks more finished. You never know who is watching through the portholes 😉

Stern – Kitchen part II

4th November 2020 – The best way not to kill your manager is to own a project-boat, somewhere you can spend a lot of time. The Stern is such an example. I was glad to spent some energy on building the second cupboard with the sink for doing the dishes.
