Conversion of a barge
Conversion of a barge Learn how to pilot an 82 tonne 1922 Dutch barge has been an adventure in every sense. Why not join me aboard and learn how I did it? The electrics were a disaster area and you can clearly see above, the appalling wiring, corroded battery terminals and general mess I found on purchase. After creating the 'nest' in which to live, I had to plan and learn exactly how to re plumb and wire a boat. It was important that this be done very well because much would eventually be hidden inside internal walls etc. Both systems also needed to be worked out in advance prior to any of the internal rebuilding being done. This took a great deal of thought and study.
The inverter! Corrosion Shocking!
