Tordino – Statieplank

16th February 2019 – Besides being open for an extra day, I mounted the new statieplank on top of the car crane, like it used to be the last thirty years. In the Library, we moved some furniture and in the museum, new objects were added.


Arma – Nearly finished

13th February 2019 –I was surprised to see how much progress was made. The hull was painted, the windows mounted at the front on deck and the engine room was closed. Water tanks were in position and the people of the yard were doing the fittings. A nice project for its purpose.

24th January 2019 – I tried getting to the ship in the morning, but it was to dangerous. In the afternoon, the weather was good and I went aboard to check the engine rooms and the cabin. Temperature was fine and the heathers were still running.

23rd January 2019 – I had a look at Tordino in the morning. I got stuck with my car, a few hundred meters before getting to the ship. A local farmer helped me out. Power was still on, so I hope everything is fine.

Tordino – Winter (2)

22nd January 2019 – This morning I drove to Tordino to check the ship. It was fine. There was a commercial barge alongside. On the way to work, it started snowing.

When I got back in the evening, most snow was gone, so I had no pictures taken of my ships in the snow.

Tordino – Winter (1)

21st January 2019 – The electric heather in the bowhtruster area didn’t go on. When I arrived that morning, I put it higher. In the evening, it was still running. The hold has some condensation. I wished I had some better shore power to run a few more electric heathers.

The most important vitrines were covered to protect them.
