25th October 2015 – I came by car to collect all the barrels and buckets with rubbish. I have empty fuel containers on the Aquarel and will pick them up on a later date to clean the bilges. Once the smell will be gone, I hope I can start measuring and drawing plans. Being aboard at the moment is not that nice.

The engine room stayed dry and that’s nice to know. There is an old set of batteries, but they are disconnected. I hope I can reuse them to start the engine. There is an old generator aboard, probably a French engine from a car. No idea whether it will start, since the control panel is missing.
