9th June 2013 – I believe a mast tells a lot of a ship. You can decorate it with some flag and all of the sudden, the ship starts to look vivid again. At the front deck is a small wooden mast. Just in front of the wheelhouse is a big metal mast with a satellite disk, spot lights and many cables!

In my original plan, the big mast had to go, but I will re use it at the front of th barge. The little wooden mast is in storage and I cleaned the big one. It was al green and the paint was falling of.

Some smaller things have been done today, like measuring the whole ship, cleaning my workshop and ventilating the boat as much as possible.
