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.
