23th January 2009 – When I got home, I hadn’t seen my ship that high on the water. Looking closer, I noticed water level had raised with more then 40cm’s.

The engine of the Julie was started today and ran nicely. Two weeks of work, and she is ready for a big trip to the yard. In some way it’s good she is running and I can concentrate again on my ship, but at the other hand, I started to learn something about engines.
