Stern – Bathroom

27th September 2021 – I finished cutting the planks for the floor of the toilet area, also made a box to cover the pipes and i made a small cupboard for some products. Happy with the result!

Stern – Planning and miter saw

20th September 2021 – I just bought a new blade for my saw. Finally I can cut some wood again! This is the only machine I don’t have a spare one hanging around and I need it daily.  After cutting the hatch for the engine room, I went for an evening walk making some plans. Plans weren’t made but it was a beautiful moon! 

Stern – Making a two trips

19th September 2021 – I made a small trip to Stalhille and back, then made one on the harbour of Ostend and came back. It was a different location this time and nice to see, but not sure if I want to do it regularly. 

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.

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.
