19th April 2020 – I fixed an issue with the wheelhouse door. This door was badly damaged a few years ago. I welded a frame and mounted it against the door. It is the cheapest option at the moment.
The stairs to the wheelhouse were sanded down and I cleaned the deck, so it is ready for painting tomorrow.
In the evening, I did a bit of woodwork in the wheelhouse.
17th April 2020 – I got myself a new table for on deck. People gave it away for free. We are really living in a consumerism society. There is nothing wrong with the table. At least, I’m happy. It is a proper table where you can easily sit with four people.
I got a little further in covering the cables in the wheelhouse.
16th April 2020 – Since I’m back from the yard, one year and a halve ago, I filled up the wheelhouse and never got to it to clean it. I started sorting out my tool and equipment.
I built new supports for around the windows. They are also covering some cables I had to mount for the last survey.
15th April 2020 – While welding some pieces for the Stern, I also repaired the bracket on the lightbox for Tordino.
9th April 2020 – I gave a second coat of paint in the workshop. Late in the evening, I started mounting equipment and tool boxes on the wall. Still a long way to go.
At the end of the day I mounted some paintings on the wall in the living room.
8th April 2020 – I managed to give the whole workshop a first coat of paint. I had to work until late in the evening, but I’m happy with the result.
7th April 2020 – I just finished the last bits and pieces in the workshop. Covering central heating pipes and building a box around the round bits of the ribs.
6th April 2020 – I was tired, had a bad night of sleep and it was busy homeworking. In the evening I did two small things, making a frame around the central heating pipes and mounting a plywood in the entrance.
The water was so clear, I could see fish swimming around my rudders.
5th April 2020 – I mainly finished the t&g in the workshop in the morning. Most of the afternoon was spent painting with primer. It is now all looking white, making the room bigger.
4th April 2020 – With the wood that was delivered yesterday, I continued working in the workshop. It is nice to have wood and to be able to continue working during these hard times.
I had to shorten the door again since I’m going to put in a proper floor.
1st April 2020 – My birthday, not much to do by myself. I painted the door and had a long distance drink with my neighbour. At least I had a beer for my birthday.
