Month: December 2009

Watergeus – Christmas

25th December 2009 – First of all I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

As you could read, the last two months I haven’t done much work on the ship. I have many plans such as finishing the front, converting the storage area into a room, putting a new floor in the wheelhouse, sanding the inside and repair the wheelhouse, etc…

I’m making a planning for all these jobs. I would like to start halfway January with the wheelhouse.

Watergeus – Mast

12th December 2009 – Last weekend I decided to make some changes to my mast. The few remaining ropes were rotten and flags were all gone. I bought around 100 meter of steel cable, all different sizes and types. It took me around a day to finish the whole project, but the result looks good.

In the afternoon, one of the last remaining jobs was done in the living room. Double glass was mounted in the skylight to prevent condensation and losing the heat.

Watergeus – Front cabin

1st December 2009 – As planned a long time ago, the front cabin will become a spare bedroom. It will be built like the back accommodation, traditional looking and vanished.

Since I’m living in the hold I used this area to store everything I no longer needed. It took me three hours to clean the area, sort out my tools, put the nails together, screws, etc… I also realized how many screw drivers I have found back!

I still have no Internet, so I don’t know when another update might be uploaded.
