26th May 2021 – Before making any other changes, I want to know how the ship is steering with a new wheelhouse. The last trip was two minutes from her previous mooring to my ship. Sunday will be the day. One of the major issues will be the noise of the engine, but that is the least to worry about at this stage.

I cleaned the decks and made sure I now have a free deck to walk around. Last time, with the old wheelhouse I had to crawl on and off the boat to get to the front. I don’t want this to happen now.
