This weblog tells the regular visitor what new information has been added to the website of Living Afloat and my projects. Since I’m working on several boats, traveling around to see more barges it is updated whenever I have some time. The weblog tells you how my boats are being converted and how it feels to convert them. I’m talking about success and failures!
Living Afloat is a personal website with lots of information and ideas, maintained by Frederic Logghe. It contains the (hi)story of the Luxe Motor Watergeus, the Groningse snik Hornblower, the bakdekkruiser Escapade, the Lemmeraak ‘Op Hoop van Zegen‘, the klipperaak Aquarel and the Friese maatkast Tordino. Some smaller projects are added like the conversion of the lifeboat Stern and the journeys I made with my friends ship Djoey.
There is also the publications on how to buy and convert a Dutch barge. This information might be a bit outdated, but the conversion blogs are interesting enough to realize whether you are ready or not to buy a boat!
At the moment I’m running a museum aboard the Tordino. Converting barges is more then a a hobby. It is a passion. I have converted ships for several years and decided it is now time to concentrate on my two major projects. The Watergeus where I live and the museum aboard Tordino.
