New start!

Post by pk » Mon Jul 15, 2019 5:28 pm

After some few years without any progression on the Trojan front, I decided to continue, or rather restart the restoration work on the "Norwegian Trojan". Some days I regret I´ve started the work, as well as my Lady want me to "do this and do that" in our house...... But boat win! Allways....

I started the restoration for 17 months ago. First took her out of water, and payed a company here in the city a "shipload" of money (up front) to finish the outside restoration. They started with removing all excessive parts, and continued with the engine compartment, fuel tank area, and all windows. Then they grinned the hull, repaired some old damages, before they sprayed it all by primer. Three weeks later they went bankruptcy. And I´ve lost my money, again. (I never learn). So in the winter time 12 months ago I decided to continue the work by myself, and got the Trojan moved to my warehouse just outside the town. In snow and ice...... After the "ending" of the crappy company who steal my money, I have been looking around for all the parts they took off my boat. Like the fuel tank, the windows, the hatches, all the flooring / hatches in cockpit and deck, swim platform, lamps and all other stuff. And all other things they have destroyed. But now I have found mostly everything, little here and there. I have found my swim platform in a garage for cars (nicked by a worker from Poland), and the fuel tank was found in a workshop for tractors. The only thing I miss now is a box with all bottom valves and trough hull fittings. It has disappeared. Vanished.... I have found everything back except the fittings. And now the "heavy" work began. Here are some pictures from the work:
