Watergeus – Filling tanks, testing pump and painting

5th May 2009 – In the afternoon I filled the tanks up to their maximum level (1000 liters each) and emptied them through the pump that was connected last week. I had a nice deck wash!

The outside dining table was painted. It was now the third year I had it, so it had to be painted once to extend it’s lifetime.

In the forepeak, the floor was painted red. If it turns out to be nice, I might do it as well in the living room. It’s an idea from another ship.

Watergeus – Plumbing

3th May 2009 – In the morning we reconnected the tanks. We let them dry before putting water in and yes they remained dry, no leaks! In the afternoon we made the copper fittings for the bathroom and kitchen.

Watergeus – Bathroom & porthole

2nd May 2009 – While cleaning out the bathroom for the the plumbing works tomorrow, I had the bright idea to already build the ceiling. I had some wood left from the sleeping room and should be enough for the ceiling, so it was.

In the evening I put a porthole in the bulkhead between the fore peak and the front accommodation. This was an attempt to have more light in the forepeak without making holes in the deck or hull. I have now some more light but it really isn’t that spectacular.

Watergeus – Living room part III

1st May 2009 – The yacht season has started, this means a lot of yachts were passing by today. At least thirty yachts, mall and big passed by. Some of them running the engine at a ridiculous speed, knowing a few hundred meters further there is a bridge and they have to stop anyway.

We continued on the living room, finishing one side by the end of the day.
