14th August 2017 – While I was in Amsterdam getting some books for my Library aboard Tordino, I stopped in Zaandam to have a quick look on the Aquarel.
She was looking good, but a bit squeezed in between two other ships. I was a bit disappointed about the paintwork of the hull. For a sandblasted ship which was coated with epoxy, I found red paint coming through on several locations. Something must have gone wrong during this process.
