    You can learn whatever you like. About painting, helping with wood like making a door, or working with metal (like welding, if you have some experience ;) ). About electricity, plumbing, etc.
    Most of the help is with wood!

    You can sleep on the boot, since one room is just finished! There is no shower yet on the boat, but you can shower at our house. We live in an old house shared with friends in the city center, not so far from the boat. That's where we cook. Tom loves to cook a lot, so we can cook together or wathever you prefer! Also, we're vegan ;)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Free time!
    In the free time we can go to the amazing free festivals we have in Ghent... We like to dance a lot, so you can join us dancing at those festivals!
    We can swim in a big lake (Blaarmeersen) nearby, or just in the river where the boat is right now :D

    Transport:
    The trams are quite frequently going from the train station (Gent-Sint-Pieters) directly to the boot.
    Tram 1 it is.
