23th June 2008 – In February 2007 I filled my waste water tank with canal water, so I could use it as a ballast tank. Since I have intentions to redo the waterline, I emptied the tank last month. Only some water remained in and my ship listed slightly to port side. I created a second hole in the tank and bought a hatch to fit in. So I could also pump out the remaining water. The tank is now nearly dry. The ship raised a few centimetres.
