Autumn 2015

Posted by nigelorrmail on October 16, 2015 at 11:20 AM

Waterman is about to be winterised. She has done a rather strenuous but succesful round trip of the Nivernais, Bourgogne, Saone, Canal du Centre and the Lateral a la Loire this year as well as two other smaller cruises.

The weather was very hot and it thoroughly tested the systems on the barge.

In the spring I installed about 800 watts of electric solar panels on the wheelhouse roof. When the barge returned from her big cruise I tuned and finished the installation.

We have reviewed some of the equipment onboard the barge and are changing quite a bit. The wooden chairs are going. It is sad because they are good teak directors chairs. They have done 15 years now so I cannot complain. I have purchased 6 aluminium stacking chairs instead.

The rev counter on the engine is noisy. I am looking to install a digital one in its place.

I have purchased a new oil change gadget which will mean the seven oil changes necessary eacjh season will be easier.

The entire set of domestic batteries have been changed out. They normally last 4 or 5 years. With the heatwave this year they started to fade in the 4 year so replacment was necessary.

The wifi hotspot system has been upgraded. New firmware has been installed in the router and a more modern dongle fitted. The aerial arrangment is to be changed for one with a little more gain. A telescopic pole has been fitted to help receiption.

Chantal is going to install new curtains in the galley area and has already redecorated the starboard cabin.As part of her refurb work the light above the dining table has been changed for a glass shade which sheds the light better.

We are awaiting new parts for the toilet and are changing the above bed lights in the starboard and rear cabins as the old ones are a bit tatty.

There's a hundred and one other bits of work to do during her winter rest. She is an old girl and needs lots of tlc to run sweetly.
