    May need some help there. E can be in charge of the cleaning and I think we had someone here who already offered to get her started (for free?).

    That would be the best option, but she should definitely take advantage of the cheap labor in the countries around her location, for an overall full refurbishment before a possible long trek home is initiated.

      Please bare with me as I will spend some time posting all the images onwards.

        It's been a while since this liferaft has been serviced and inspected. We may need to bring our own life saving appliances with us when we go to pick up the ship.

                  The lifeboats are collapsing on themselves, as if they were hung up and had started to melt. We may need new lifeboats.

                    A brand new generator was installed when the ship arrived at Bangkok the first time, to supply air condition units with electricity. It's located on the boat deck.

                        One lifeboat is gone, destroyed by rain:

                        How many of our readers has spent time here, whilst the ship sailed the Norwegian coast in all kinds of weather? I'd like this to become a winter garden Cafe after refurbishment.

                          The after deck should be made into a sundeck with additional seating arrangements:

                              These lifejackes will have to be replaced I would guess, or we must bring our own:

                                Anyone want to go visit the Captains Quarters?

                                When we have purchased the ship, during the refurbishment and during the time when we are preparing to take her home, this will be my cabin.
