Watergeus – Lockdown

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. 

Watergeus – Wheelhouse and deck

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.

I discovered a leak in my deck last week. Tomorrow I will weld it when I have someone to check for possible smoke or fire inside the ship. I prepared the deck removing the old bronze pipe.
