16th July 201 – In the morning I got some more sheets of wood from my neighbour. I cut them on the right size so they could enter the boat.

In the afternoon and evening I broke down the bathroom. I was disappointed I could not lower the floor. Shaft and exhaust of the engine are running underneath the floor. I felt through the wooden floor on four locations. I’ll replace it next weekend with a descent construction!

The price for aluminum windows (like the RAFA windows) are expensive. Rubbers around glass is much cheaper, but I have seen them go wrong on several ships. I needed a few buckets on the Escapde and now I need a few on the Hornblower.
