|The floor is 20 cm above the bottom of the hull, which is made of iron. It can be cold at the feet level. The floor was covered by 3 layers of dusty carpet. Under the carpet, I found an amazing wooden floor made of 35 mm of azobé. I don’t know how much we should pay to buy such quantity of exotic wood !
The problem was that the planks were painted.
|The cold iron hull is protected from corrosion with a special grease.|
|With Helmuth leaving near Rotterdam, a German friend I met in Iceland, we put 35 mm thermal insulation under the wooden floor.|
|The planks are slightly curved. With Éric, we plan the sides of each plank to adjust it with its two neighbors.||Each plank will have its “personal” position in the row.|
|We sand each plank individually. It is temporarily installed 2 mm above two neighbors on which the machine is rolling.|
|So nice !|
