  • Description


    Hey worldwide boat lovers,

    We are working each day after work a few hours on renovating our sailing boat . She's a Northwind47, build in Barcelona, 35 years ago. Currently we're completely renovating the teak deck; bit by bit all the dried out old 'rubber' strips we cut out, then deepen the groove to 5mm, sand the lot and eventually will fill them in with new teak deck filler (I'm sure there are more professional words to describe this, but hey ho, I'm sure you get the gist).

    After this Carsten is taking the old windows & window frames out and will replace the voids with a new design window he's been working on for the last few years.

    Would you like to join us for a little while with this project and pick up a few new skills on the way, you are super welcome.

    We are located near Arnhem in The Netherlands, on the edge of a large lake. We kayak, swim and dinghy sail in our spare time. Carsten lives in Holland since two years for work, I (Mieke) visit him as much as possible, but my home is in England. I've welcomed over 80 workawayers since 2009 in my house in England, it has been a tremendously positive experience.

    Drop us a line if you have any questions.

    With kindest regards,

    Mieke & Carsten
