    That sounds depressing, did they pay for the making good? Horribly expensive, boat work. I will have to try to do as much as I can myself..

    well, if I tell you that I still have water in my bilge comming thru the portholes, my cockpit floor is in the primer again due to corrosion, you saw after the refit was done I had to replace the windows on the dock house because they didn’t remove them when sandblasting and you couldn’t see thru the glass anymore…. and I can go on and on and on.

    But hé, it's just a boat

    That's very kind of you Bart, beautiful boat you've got there I gather you redid the teak/woodwork, rigging, varnish, new windvane, and you're still not happy with it? It's certainly shiny now..

    Oh dear! Sounds expensive.. Any photos? What were the major projects?
  6. champ8242
    I sure will! But it will take me a few hours to talk about the refit 6 months 70K and still not satisfied!

    If you come by Nieuwpoort this spring, make sure you drop in for a beer I'd be interested in hearing about your overhaul, I'm a bit scared about my refit.

    Yes it is a steel VdS. I had a major overhaul 2 years ago. I'm sailing the Ijsselmeer, Waddenzee, Northsee (NL, BE, UK, GE, Norway) It's completely iced in for 8 weeks or so, so no chance of experimenting with OpenCPN

    Hello Bart, that is ever so kind of you, I had a look at the anchorage on the map and it does look advantageous. I am now based in Belgium however, doing up my new steel boat. Your van der Stadt is steel also I presume?

    Best regards, Max

    If you are sailing on the IJsselmeer, you can drop anchor in my backyard; 52.535647,5.446858
    I can even arrange a stay for a night (or two) on a jetty in our private marina if you let me know a bit ahead
