De Monne de Miranda is back from two weeks at the shipyard. We have been a guest at Jachtwerf Weesp on Nijverheidslaan in Weesp for years. A special place where people with a lot of knowledge and expertise take the time for their customers and the boats.
Ruud the Newlife ship painter is the boat painter par excellence. He prefers to paint boats and does so with a lot of patience. The result is always great. The saloon boat Monne de Miranda shines again with a new 2-component paint and the mahogany in the hardwood oil. Underwater there is a new layer of primer and antifouling.
Dam’s ship carpentry
Paul Dams again helped us with the new window battens. He sawn beautiful bar laths from a number of heavy mahogany beams from the Amsterdam Fijnhouthandel. It was high time for new windows. The boats are equipped with hard glass so that guests are not injured in the event of a breakage.
During the work we came across a piece of Swiss newspaper. Unfortunately not with date, but it will undoubtedly be from the 1930s when the saloon boat was a permanent fixture on Lake Lugano. Later the ship was transported by road to Muiden to be further finished there.
In addition to the necessary technical adjustments to, among other things, the rudder, the hydrolysis installation and the central heating system, we are completely ready for the autumn.
