Peter made a lot of progress! The boxes for the batteries are ready and one with the batteries is installed, together with the electric motor and controller. He is going to add some cooling elements around it (I don’t know what exactly yet), but overheating of the controller seems to be a possible problem when we use it for a longer time, so I think it’s a good idea. We still have to do some welding and cleaning up in the bilge, but this gives a lot of space in the salon, navigation area and the kitchen (galley). These batteries are all good, but the batteries I use for sanding down the rust are slowly dying. I can’t do a lot of work with them, because they go out of power pretty quickly. Peter ordered some new ones, so I will be back up to speed when they arrive.
The motor was standing in the kitchen the whole time, so now I finally could remove the floor there and see the second most feared area (rust wise) underneath it. It was pretty bad. The first most feared area (rust wise) is the area underneath the fridge. It is sealed to LIV, so removing this will be a whole other story. I point it out in the video.
Living around working
It is still lovely at the place we live now. The plants are still doing great and we find our way with going through our stuff from the container (it is a bit of a mess here sometimes), organizing my art work and yoga-business administration and the stuff from the jobs Peter is doing, but we are alright. It has been very busy, but I think that is always the case when you start a new business. I finally found the planner on the Meta-Business-Facebook-Insta-Page and I finished the website (https://sannevanderheyden.wixsite.com/atha-yoga). Big steps! We have some very cute roommates in the room we are sleeping in, Peter made fresh bread already twice now and I have made a recent coffee-making-video. Just to give some text to the shorts and pictures I made. This is a short one! I am going to bed early (it’s 9 pm now) because of my practice at 4 am and teaching Mysore at 6 am. Looking forward! See you in the next one 🙂
