8th April 2007 – A heavy night yesterday forced me not to work on my boat. I placed a table on deck and tighten the boat to the mooring posts that were placed last month.

A few people came by and started talking with me. There used to be an old boat in Bruges, a German built spits barge. it sank multiple times and believe what, it was on my mooring. We then did a measurement to know the depth under the boat. it is around 1,5 meters. I do remember some information on that German Spits. She was built as a war compensation in 1919. She was raised and scrapped in Antwerp. This must have been 7 years ago. I’ll try find a picture of that boat.
