Tordino – Cleanup

17th March 2019 – I did a small clean-up outside.  Leaves, branches from trees and some rubbish, all of it was blown on deck. I raised the mast again and did some cleaning in the back accommodation. 

Later in the afternoon, I continued moving my tools to the back of the ship. At least, the storage unit is becoming empty and ready to be converted in an archive room.

Tordino – Archive Centre

15th March 2019 – While it is still to windy to do anything outside, I continued sorting out books and documents on the Watergeus to move to the Archive and Documentation Centre of Museumschip Tordino. I found some old documents in a box. They came from the British trawler Ross Leopard. I spent most of the evening reading the books….

Storm damage

10th March 2019 – A day to remember, at lunch time, my neighbours in Beernem called me. The boats were a bit loose because of the wind. On arrival I noticed the wheelhouse of the first boat was gone including some hatches.

In the evening when I was on the Watergeus, a few flower pots were gone, nothing special.
