4th April 2015 – Working a bit on the engine, dismantling water and fuel fittings. One of the new deadlines is to have the engine running or replaced by the beginning of the summer. The engine room is one of the few areas I left untouched since I own the ship.

In the afternoon, my parents came to help me moving boxes and cables in my workshop. I need to pull wires from the fusebox to the hold, but a lot of stuff stands in the way. There was still an area underneath the front accommodation that was filled by the previous owner. It took us some time to get to it. Anchors, cables, old wooden doors, wooden hatches and some more stuff was stored. Nice things, but most of them useless. It was impressive to see how the ship was built, where the square side of the ship slowly turns into the curved bow. I found back traces from the bow rudder.

After the big cleanup, we started pulling the wires. I ran out of cable, so the perfect excuse to go home and stop working for today.
