Month: August 2020 - page 2
10th August 2020 – The last day of the Minart in Bruges, the new owners invited me for a drink. They are leaving tomorrow.
10th August 2020 – The new owner asked me to help picking up another engine for the Hornblower. Not really worth mentioning, but once the ship is moving again with her new engine, I might remember this post.
9th August 2020 – A few small jobs were done. I cleaned the bilges on starboard, cleared that side of the yacht and started building a frame for the insulation and t&g. Slowly getting there, but it is really to warm to work.
7th August 2020 – Today I noticed a beautiful ship passing by in Bruges. It was the tjalk ‘De Vrouwe Linda’, built in 1910. It was in commercial service until 1964 and then became a houseboat.
7th August 2020 – BBQ in Oudenburg
6th August 2020 – To warm to work, but doing nothing was not really an option. I filled the fuel tank in case I have the need to make a journey and I continued with some t&g for the sides of the living room. I hope to do more tomorrow morning when it is a bit colder….
5th August 2020 – One of the last remaining issues for looking traditional are the aluminium hatches. They look to modern, even if it is an old ship. The cover was mounted today and I’m happy with the result. By the time we finished temperature was to hot to do anything. So it the was right timing!
