Happy New Year !

December 31, 2009

A new year, a new home, a new workshop, a new website ………..
a new start.

By signing the contract of sale on last Monday December 28 we became the owners of our new home in Lelystad. The building project has been moved to the new workshop in Huizen and now we are in the middle of moving all our stuff from the old house to the new one. So, it is a very busy time for us with not much time left for the boatbuilding. Next update will take a while I’m afraid.

Fram’s website remains alive but I thought it became high time for a refreshment of the update approach by means of a blog. This instead of the logbook in the homepage of http://www.fram.nl

I still get a lot of email with questions and advice about my boatbuilding activities and it is a pity this information was not shared with other interested website followers. This blog gives the oppertunity to make comments on posts and that is a much better way to share valuable information instead of keeping this for myself or the questioner in private emails.

So please, do comment on these posts. I’ve imported all the logbook items into this blog so you can still make a comment on the older ones.

An email subscription option has been added in the right sidebar. This allows readers to sign-up and receive emails when new posts are published on the Fram Project. The subscriber can select how often this email is sent (the delivery frequency – immediate, daily, or weekly), as well as when this email is sent (the delivery window – a specific day and hour). This is an excellent way to keep in touch with the Fram Project.

An exciting day today, moving the mainhull out of the workshop in Hilversum and to the new workshop in Huizen.

Finally the time is ready to move the hull to another storage. After the final painting the hull is stored in another place, waiting for the assembly with her starboard twin sister.
