Frantsis – For sale

12th October 2010 – I decided to put the Frantsis up for sale. Anyone who is interested can contact me. She is good start for a nice project of a little houseboat. It is technical also possible to make her look original again, but that would take you some time!

Frantsis – Cleaning bilges

18th September 2010 – In the afternoon I cleaned some bilges from the Frantsis and put some oil on them so they are better preserved for the winter. I made a little floor and put the wood from my back accommodation in it. That’s the good thing about owning two barges. You can always use one as storage.

Frantsis – Drawing plans

17th July 2010 –  The bathroom in the Watergeus was finished last year, but a little step to get into it wasn’t made yet. A small job I did this morning.

The good thing about our project is partly we think before we do! With the Watergeus, I did while I was thinking. The more negative side of this is I made another plan for the conversion.

So at this moment, I would need four little barges like the Frantsis, because every plan we make has some potential. To be continued…

Frantsis – A perfect deck

4th July 2010 – A few neighbours came over for a drink. Since the deck of the Frantsis is always clear, I don’t like to have a messy boat next to me after the Ontario has left, there is enough space for people to sit comfortable on the water. I’m now pretty much convinced when converting a boat to make sure there is enough space to sit outside!
