Hornblower – Moving the boats

31st January 2013 – Since four days the weather is mild but rainy. There is a lot of wind. Anyway, Andy and I decided to swap the boats next to the Watergeus. It makes it easier to load the furniture aboard my ship and when I work I don’t have to walk in front of his ship.

I started cleaning the wheelhouse and moving the stuff I no longer needs onto the Watergeus for storage (or another project…).

Hornblower – Oiling the living room floor

21st January 2013 – A few more little pieces had to be done in the living room. Once they were cut it was time to oil the floor. I’m always using oil for outside. I have it now for over thee years in the Watergeus and it still looks good. Pictures are taken with my phone. Quality is not that good…


Hornblower – Line oil in the bilges

19th January 2013 – It is important to have access to the bilges in case there is ever a problem or you suspect something is wrong. I’ve opened the floor, cleaned the bilges and put line oil on it. It is not the perfect period for doing so, but it will dry out and become hard one day…

Hornblower – Painting the living room

7th January 2013 – In the early morning I put a coat of primer in the bathroom.

Anna came to help painting the living room. It was done quicker then I thought. The rest of the day was spent away from the boat.

In the evening I fixed two little leaks, one in the solar vent of the living room and one in the ceiling of the wheelhouse.
