The old website is gone. She is still online, but hidden at the moment. I’m transferring the old posts to this new site. Where possible, I will add some more pictures and keywords for searching.
At this moment I’m uploading the conversion of the Lemmeraak ‘Op Hoop van Zegen‘.
14th July 2018 – Starting from today, Museumschip Tordino is open every second and fourth Saturday of the month. I wasn’t totally ready, so I worked in the morning hiding my tools and hovering the ship.
There were around 12 people who came. This was a good result knowing I didn’t make any publicity besides on Facebook to some friends.
13th July 2018 – We moved a friend’s barge in the evening. She is now moored alongside the Watergeus. Two Luxe Motors from the same period. A nice look from the other side!
9th July 2018 – I’ve been working on Museumschip Tordino for most of the time. She is now nearly ready for opening next weekend.
9th July 2018 – The old accommodation is finished. Chairs are put in the space, the television is mounted to the wall.
6th July 2018 – We went to see the ‘Op Hoop van Zegen’ in Zelzate. She will be launched in the water next week, so this was one of the last days to take some pictures after the repairs had been done.
It is a good thing the new owner repaired the bow. Sadly enough, the yard didn’t do it properly. The shape and curve were not followed and instead of welding, a lot of silicon was used.
6th July 2018 – Through Monumentenwacht, I received a big collection of magazines and books for the Library of Museumschip Tordino. I drove to Ghent to pick them up. On the way back I stopped in Ikea to get some boxes to put them in!
28th June 2018: Another day of hanging pictures and labeling objects…
25th June 2018 – A special painted English boat passed by.
23rd June 2018 – A couple of my friends organized a party in Ghent. It was near the water in an old factory. A lovely location, not far from where I used to live on the Aquarel. It brought back some nice memories…
22nd June 2018 – What is better to start the weekend then having a small boat trip in Bruges…
