Tuesday August 15
The day started by sanding down the rust sport, created by the little ‘kernel’ or rust removed by the perago disk who flew around and landed on the deck. They left a little rust spots sanded pilot house front deck. I should have wiped/ hosed the deck after I remove the rust …………After the sanding I applied a coat of primer which had Owatrol added to it. Owatrol converts rust and is a rust inhibitor. The primer was dry in 20 odd minutes.
2 Kabola technicians came to assist Ron with the hot air unit. The Temperature indicator showed an ambient temperature of 1C. These technicians, did discover that one thermocouple should have been mounted factory wise was not. So they needed a 7 mm drill and a pair of pliers, to make sure the drill would not go too far and puncture the heat exchanger. The next problem …the 1C measurement was caused because the plug was not in deep enough. And yes the heating worked smoothly and quietly. We discussed how to optimally control it, and it was decided that the wall controller would control the furnace on and off, and the blower would be set on automatic and the temperature. This way the fan will adjust its speed to the temperature of the outside thermocouple, and be very quiet.
Lindy and Roy coming, but are having delays with trains
Once Roy got into designing the frame for the switches, Lindy and I applied a coat of yellow on the top deck which I had just sanded and primed
While we Lindy and I were painting, Deb decided Lindy needs to make some art on the main hatch, which would be fun to look at, and on the hatch it can be ‘framed, and people will not really walk much over it.
Here you can see how Deb was trained by the swans. They would gently float up, see that the window was open and make noise, Deb then dutifully would grab the lets over bread, feed them, at first by just throwing small pieces out the window, and later by holding it in her hand and the swans just picking it out. Just like she did when were in France on Waterman
Roy and Lindy had to leave around 18:30, because of train troubles it would be a longer. Because it was still light we drove to Wijk aan Zee for a walk on the beach and some food. In this place you went in, ordered paid and they would bring it out. So I quickly ordered 2 fun beers, a portion Sateh and a portion bitterballen. I got my 2 beers and our number to be displayed on the table. The Sateh came out….and no sign of the bitterballen, the chef apologized and said they would come out very quickly now. We nibbled on the Sateh…and . 20 minutes later our beers were finished and still no bitterballen. I went inside and smilingly explained and after excuses of the manager I exchanged the number for the price of the bitterballen.
While walking to the car, we saw this Abri ( Shelter in French) which was a sea shell on its side made in 1993. Deb sat on the little bench and the sound was amazing, it really amplified the sea sounds
