23rd June 2011: Broken battery charger
The last couple of weeks I had not been on board for a long period. I spent most of my time in the Netherlands working on the Hornblower.
While I was in the wheelhouse, checking the back accommodation, I noticed my charger was no longer active. Everything I tried, it didn't help...
Three years ago I bought an expensive loader which was supposed to last a few years, not three!
25th June 2011: Bulkhead
For a long period, I'm considering to bring my ship under the new regulations for sailing. This means I need a bulkhead in the engine room. I'm cleaning the area at the moment, measuring and looking where to put ribs, plates, etc...
In the afternoon I filled my water tanks and had a chat aboard the Frantsis. A lot of work has been done aboard the Frantsis!
The same with the Watergeus! I have not been working on her for a period, but the condition changes quickly. I'm glad I did sell the Escapade. It would have been to much work to maintain three vessels.
