Hornblower – Fusebox

6th July 2011 – While aboard the Watergeus, I started looking for some basic electricity stuff and made a little panel with sockets and fusebox. It is to be mounted in the engine room on the bulkhead.

During the day I made some plans of the engine room. Once they are digital, I publish them here.

Hornblower – Bollards, front hatch, engine room and mast

2nd July 2011 – My parents came to help. I asked them if they could help me remove the floor in the engine room. Since the bulkhead is there, I need to lift everything through a hatch. By noon the engine room was clear and ready to be cleaned.


In the afternoon I treated the mast with line oil and stabilized it with steel cable.


The bollards on the side, near the wheelhouse are finished. We now started working on the front hatch, adding some portholes and re welding it.

Before leaving Sluiskil, I took some pictures from the other side of the dock.
