17th November 2013 – I mainly worked on the floor, removing some of the old planks and welding the frame for the new ones. It is a slow job, but it must be done. After a whole day of working, you barely see any difference.

The supports I’m making are also called kattensporen in Dutch. They prevent the ship from creating a ‘kattenrug’. This means the bottom of the ships starts bending or creating a specific shape.
