14th June 2008 – At 8 O’clock I sailed aboard the Nomade from her mooring to the nearest lock.

In the morning I put in some more insulation in the roof. In the afternoon we cut out the holes for the air vent system of the ship. These holes will be used for air ventilation between the metal and the insulation and for the air in every room.

My mother painted the wheelhouse in yellow, like the traditional Dutch barges did.
