15th May 2009 – Tomorrow I have a barbecue with some colleagues. They always wanted to see how I live on a barge, so it was the perfect moment to combine this with a barbecue. The preparation took most of the day since the hold had to be emptied. This was one of the reasons why I had built the storage system last Wednesday. The more stuff I could permanently store in the front or back, the better.

The boiler was connected to the water system and some fittings were mounted on the water pipes as well.
