I was taking the water out of the bilges and disassembling the wooden elements in the interior, so I can take them out. After a while, Maja came inside and said: ‘This looks even worse now!’ It was really demotivating to hear that, although it was probably true. I wanted to work inside the boat because it’s really hard to bread, but Maja insisted that she also wanted to go in and when she decides something… well, let’s just say that there is no stopping her… She simply doesn’t understand the word ‘No’.
Maja slowly started to clean the galley, so I had no choice, but to let her do it… I tried to pull her out every now and then to get some air, but she just ignored me and kept on working. After a while, when I looked inside, I was amazed. She did an incredible job cleaning. The galley actually looked GOOD! I still can’t believe it. I know that it’s far from over. We will have to sand all of the wood in the interior and varnish it again, but this really gave me hope 🙂
When I finally convinced Maja to finish the job inside (it was time to go home already), she started to clean the deck and the cockpit. Again, she did it with care..
Now I’m sure that if you want to do something properly, in the end… You will always need a woman’s touch… 🙂
