Stern – Making a box for the radio

15th September 2021 – Let’s say I was a bit tired from last night. It is always nice to chat to some people, make plans and listen to their ideas. Gives me energy. Energy that was somehow lost today…

Mainly worked on sanding down some planks for the floor of the wheelhouse. I also made a box for the car radio that will be installed in the wheelhouse. At least, when the ship is moving, I can listen to music.  My neighbour gave me some advise how to build a proper antenna. This is for the weekend…

 

Stern – Sanding down a mast

14th September 2021 – The weather is not that great. I made the bottom for the kitchen cupboard. Then I started something else…

I want to put a second mast for the Stern, a small one, to hold some extra equipment and an extra antenna. It is the old mast from the Hornblower.  I started sanding it down until it rained.

Tordino – Mounting the mast and finishing my living room table

8th September 2021 – Two small jobs done today. I finished the little table for my living room. It was an old table I cut up and shortened so it fits for my chess board. 

In the afternoon, I mounted the mast I bought a few weeks ago. It is looking fine. Let’s see if it holds.  It was to warm to work so I gave up working and went looking for some shadow underneath some threes. 

Stern – Another trip

6th September 2021 – I made another trip with the Stern, this time with my father. It was a small journey, but at least I know he was happy. Probably thinking: money well spent on this one 😉

My neighbour took some nice pictures.

 

Stern – Three journeys

5th September 2021 – After having a good breakfast on the Watergeus, I drove back to Oudenburg to set out with the Stern. I made a first trip by myself and then two more journeys with friends and neighbours. A day well spent aboard the Stern. Driving a ship, that’s why she made for!
