4th August 2021 – When moving the Stern, so many people looked at me. Some of them were seriously interested, others were looking at the ship like it was a wreck…. What people don’t know is that I’m proud of owning this ship. Many people want to own a ship or dream of one. I just did it. Tough or sad, I don’t care. I made it safely to Oudenburg with the white lifeboat alongside. Now it is time to continue working on the Stern to finish her. Earlier this month I was still planning on selling her, now I know more then ever I will use her for cruising on our canals in the evening.
Later that evening, I continued sanding down the new door for the back and had a great evening with one of the neighbours.
