Easter tour and boatwork
It is Easter holiday now which means four days off work. The first day we took a tour with our ship Aline to the island Storön in the archipelago together with some other ships.
It was definitely summer feelings in Stockholm with 20 degrees (68 Fahrenheit) and we brought our sliding hatch and Thomas worked with it for a while.
We spent one night out and then drove back in the evening. The following day we went to the sailboat to continue working.
First up was to add our new stop wire we bought. The old one was glitching and we want to have a reliable stop wire.
We still need a final piece on the engine side which we haven’t bought yet, so the installation is not finished. We continued with the electrical installation on the engine, we use pipes around the cables, for protection and to have it nicely organized.
We also tried to add the cover for the generator, looks really nice and clean now! 🙂
We also use pipes for the other cables routed in the “engine room”.
We had also painted the holders for the diesel filters in the same color as the engine. It is starting to look very nice below the flooring. Still some details left, but we’re getting there.
We took a look at the electrical panel in the navigation area in the boat. We also opened some drawers that we haven’t looked in since buying the boat, found some useful stuff; some courtesy flags, a bunch of flares and then a bunch of stuff that we don’t know what it is and what it should be used for, but maybe time will tell.
Now we just got back from a shopping tour to buy a bunch of stuff we need, both for the electrical system and the sliding hatch. Always nice to spend some money… We just arrived to the boat and will continue working.
