Watergeus – Workshop

4th April 2020 – With the wood that was delivered yesterday, I continued working in the workshop. It is nice to have wood and to be able to continue working during these hard times.

I had to shorten the door again since I’m going to put in a proper floor.

Wategeus – cleaning a light box and repairing the mast

31st March 2020 – I cleaned the first of two light boxes for the Tordino. They are the old boxes from the Arma, wel covered in paint…

I repaired the mast. It is a temporary solution, but I hope it last until the Corona period is over and I can buy another one.

And the last job for the evening was cleaning a porthole for my front door.

Watergeus – Cleaning the deck

28th March 2020 – I’m getting bored with no wood left to work. My deck was a mess and I cleaned it with a high pressure cleaner, removing old paint and rust. I also cleaned the little boat and my hatches where I had been working the last couple of days to restore the light cases for Tordino.

Watergeus – Anchors

26th March 2020 – At lunch time I put a coat of primer on the anchor from the Arma. It could dry out in the sun while I continued working from home. 

After work, I salvaged my neighbours little boat. I can’t remember how many times it sank before, but now it is broken. After the last stom, it got caught between the big barge and land. It is very doubtful if I can repair it.

While water was running out the small boat, I gave a first coat of paint on the anchor and on the railing of the Watergeus. 

In the evening I continued cleaning the other anchor.

Watergeus – Painting

24th March 2020 – I started painting the workshop. I finished the ceiling with t&g before I could paint. Since I ran out of wood, the walls will have to be finished another time.

In the late evening, I chipped some rust from the big anchor. I had no energy left to take an electric tool. So I jus used a hammer. 

Watergeus – Door and wall

8th March 2020 – Today the door was mounted between the workshop and the technical room.  The wall was finished and I started working with t&g. The door is similar to the ones in the living accommodation. I always kept a spare door and now, after 12 years I can finaly use it. Never throw anything away!
