Watergeus – Painting

15th September 2019 – The den and front cabin got a second coat of paint. I put some order on my deck and put the propellers back on the roof of the bathroom. One of them was slightly to heavy and I had to use my crane. Never underestimate the luxury of having a crane aboard your ship!

On starboard side, I removed a metal strip so the water could easier get of the ship. I did the same thing on port side last year.

The little boat on my deck was cleaned and I moved some old plates and put them under the hatches. All small things that make my ship looking better again.

Watergeus – Getting some new furniture

16th  August 2019 – We went to Ikea to get some furniture for the living.  It took us two hours for shopping and another two for waiting in the queue.  In the afternoon I started dismantling some of the old furniture. When I came back from friends, I built one cupboard.

Watergeus – Getting the desk

13th August 2019 – I picked up an old desk at my parents place. It is a handmade desk from the early 30’s, which had been in family ever since. Last year, I had a chance of getting it, but no place to put it. I decided to store this lovely part of furniture temporary at my parents place until now. 

Watergeus – Office space

11th August 2019 – After a good night of partying in Bruges, I finaly started with the conversion of my office space. When I built the Watergeus in 2005-2007, I had little money so the desk was made with plywood. Behind the desk were all the cables, but nothing really finished.  Today I removed the first part of that desk, including old cables and stuff I no longer needed. As expected, I did discover several older items and decoration I was barely aware of they were still aboard…

I had several small cabinets full of documents from boats, conversions, etc.. I’ll move them to Tordino where they will be added to the archive. 

Watergeus – small jobs take time

28th July 2019 – I started working in the corridor of the bedroom in the Watergeus. After the fire incident in 2015, I had rebuild the walls but, I never finished the woodwork around the portholes.  There are still seven portholes that needs finishing. I managed to do two of them.
