1st November 2006 – The weather wasn’t to good for painting, sometimes sun shine, sometimes raining. In the morning, I was able to paint the new cabin and the deck. Those were the two parts that were completely finished.
In the afternoon, we continued with the sides. It is taking us every time more time to put the plates in position, maintaining the lining and distance between both sides, so the hatches would fit nicely.
In the late evening, my other neighbor came with a fully loaded spits barge, the Yannick. That night, he didn’t put his ropes nicely, so the whole night, we were all moving from one side to another. Bashing and the noise of tiers being squeezed made it horrible to sleep. The cold winter didn’t make it easier. Fortunately I had an petroleum heather.
