Month: April 2021 - page 2
9th April 2021 – We continued removing paint from the decks and painted them afterwards. The crane at the back is now also painted.
7th April 2021 – In the morning I went to pick up steenschotten for the gangway. I used the same panels as floor for Aquarel years ago. They are solid and can be used outside.
In the afternoon I welded bits and pieces to the metal pipes for the mooring posts. At least, the pipe will now stick in the concrete.
6th April 2021 – After making several phone calls to get some heavy pipes and some more stuff for the mooring, I went to Oudenburg to enlarge the holes and to make an extra one. Should now be enough to secure Tordino properly.
I also started cleaning the concrete. I want is as clean as my neighbour.
3rd April 2021 – I mounted the rubber on the mooring posts. These will prevent damage to the hull.
3rd April 2021 – Today I helped launching the Maxx again. Sadly enough it was again no success. The manager of the marina wanted us to stay in the water, while I was sure this was not a good idea. After about 5 minutes I could no longer keep her up without pumping. I tried moving the ship with the idea of bringing her to a yard, but the steering was that bad I had to return and taker her back out of the water.
1st April 2021 – I removed the remaining tar from the strip just below the deck. It will become white to give a little break in the ship.
