Stern – Old photos

17th April 2020 – I received an email with pictures from one of the previous owners of the Stern. The ship was called Paulien. It is nice to get some closer to the history if the vessel.

Can’t wait to move her and start working on her.

Stern – Colvic Watson 26

8th March 2020 – While searching for ideas, I found the Colvic Watson 26. A nice model of a ship ith nearly the same dimensions. The ship is wider then the Stern, but I can try make it look similar, certainly the interior. The idea is looking good, but I need to study a little more in this type of ship and the options I have.

Stern – Bad weather

29th February 2020 – Bad weather again. It is getting annoying I can’t do much. I hovered out the bilges and that’s about it. On one side, I removed some paint, so people notice a difference. Now it is waiting for the weather to become better so I can put a new roof on the ship. When I had a look at the prices for metal, it will cost me some more then expected. Boats….


Stern – Status

2nd February 2020 – What is happening with the Stern? Nothing at the moment. I’m making plans and I’m doubting if I should put a tempoary roof in plywood with a cover or just leave as it is and put the metal when I’m having some money.

I had the plan of going there today, but decided to finish Tordino first.

Stern – Second visit

29th December 2019 – I called the owner and said I wanted to see the inside of the ship. He started the engine and it was running. Great to convince desperate people, but we had no idea where to look first. The bottom has so many pipes and fittings sticking out. It is like a ticking time bomb.  The size is good, I can stand up in the hold, but there is not much space left.  A project to do? I don’t know…

Stern – First visit

25th December 2019 – Recently, an acquaintance contacted me about a yacht in Ghent. His son has passed away and the ship needs to go. It was a 8.5 meters motor yacht with work on the outside and inside.  I went to Ghent and had a look. The boat isn’t looking that great at all. After ten minutes, I drove to some friends and forgot about it.
