16th April 2015 – It has been in the news and sadly enough I have to confirm it. My friends ship was lost in a fire while moored alongside the Watergeus. This happened last week, the 7th April. Nobody was wounded but the damage is severe. The yacht is lost and was salvaged yesterday. My ship will be repaired in the near future when the insurance is arranged.
A simple diesel heather caused the fire. This can happen to everyone. What saved the Watergeus was the quick response of the neighbours that cooled down my ship with water. One of them used a pump, the other one the street connection. Without their response there would be no Watergeus left!
Regular updates on my blog about the conversion of the Aquarel and my other projects will continue again in May.
