30th September 2022 – I’m planning on using the Stern for a project at the end of the month. I started the engine, but with a nearly flat battery it took some charging time to start. In the end it started an ran nicely. What do I love Lister engines!

29th September 2022 – Another evening of scanning covers of magazines and adding them to Erfgoed in Zicht….
27th September 2022 – I did some scanning yesterday and continued today. After moving the library units, I didn’t want to put back the unscanned magazines, so all I can do now is scanning and scanning… Since it is raining, there are no other jobs to do anyway.
25th September 2022 – I put the remaining cupboards of the Library of the Watergeus in the library of Tordino. It gives an extra storage addition for new books. While rebuilding some parts of the library, I now also have much more space to add new items on Houten walen to the running exhibition.
In the afternoon, we cleaned some of the presentation boxes. Slightly preparing for the next summer!
25th September 2022 – A replica luxe motor barge passed by. It was the British ship Ascension.

22nd September 2022 – I was just in time to see the tug MarineQuest passing under Plassendale brug.
20th September 2022 – A not so often seen pleasure craft registered in Poland. The barge Csavargo passed by at lunch time.
