Month: October 2009

Watergeus – Nearly there..

24th October 2009 – The bathroom received it’s third and final coat of paint. The sink was connected to the pump in the kitchen. I mounted the furniture for the bathroom and by the end of the evening, I painted the kitchen floor. A few more days and the hold is done!

Visiting a ship – helping with advice

19th October 2009 – Friends asked me to visit a ship wit them and give my opinion. It is always hard to give an opinion so I try to do this as minimum as possible.

The positive side on this is that I meet new people and visit new ships. On this ship I found an East German or Russian engine. It was very similar to an American GM, but I had never seen it before.

Watergeus – Bathroom, deck

18th October 2009 – In the kitchen a few more details needed painting. The bathroom received it first coat of paint. Since my deck is having a lot of rust, the worst places have been oiled to prevent getting it worse. It is now the second day I’m sleeping in the hold instead of the back accommodation. A big change!

In the afternoon I visited a neighbour. The previous owners of the ship had come over for some explanation of the ship and the engine. Great people with a lot of ship knowledge.

Watergeus – Bathroom & friends

12th October 2009 – Last night I gave a second coat of oil on the floor.

While the last bits were done on the shower, friends from Sluiskil came over to have a chat and a drink. It had been a while and it is always nice to hear other people’s opinion on your work.
