28th May 2020 – My parents came to do the gardening around the Watergeus
10th May 2020 – Ten years ago I bought a cabinet for the Watergeus but never had room to put it. Now it is my workshop.
6th May 2020 – While I had to do some painting, I repaired damaged parts aboard the Watergeus.
5th May 2020 – A small addition to the workshop….
3rd May 2020 – While I had to paint the other side of the metal hatch and the lightboxes for Tordino, I repainted the skylight and a part of the front deck of the Watergeus.
2nd May 2020 – I continued cleaning metal, finishing the hatch I started yesterday evening. Then I did the second lightbox for Tordino.
1st May 2020 – It is getting heavy, seeing no friends and always working from home, no social contact besides seeing the people walking by on the towpath and street. I can’t work on my projects, it is bad weather and I’m running out on inside jobs and energy…
In the evening, I started working with cleaning a metal hatch to protect a window on the front deck. It is an old hatch from the Aquarel, I will use it in winter time or when I’m moving the ship.
27th April 2020 – I gave a last coat of oil on the wheelhouse. I hope it to be good for a few years now… There are some more jobs to be done, but it will be raining tomorrow so, they have to wait.
24th April 2020 – After cleaning my deck yesterday evening, I started painting it. It got two coats of paint It never lasts to long, but at least, it is all the same colour again.
23rd April 2020 – Two holes in the deck were welded this evening. I had to ask someone to help since I could not weld and watch for possible fire in the front accommodation. Later that evening, I put a coat of oil on the other sides of the wheelhouse.
22nd April 2020 – I continued with the wheelhouse. Giving a coat of oil early in the morning. Sadly enough it was not dry in the evening, so I continued sanding down the other sides of the wheelhouse and filling up the wholes and rotten parts. It was a nice wheelhouse, but it is really starting to show its age.
