9th February 2020 – Working outside is impossible. To much wind. I worked aboard the Tordino moving models and decorating one wall. I want it right, with the correct information and photos next to the model.
31st January 2020 – While my mother was painting the walls, I built shelves for the ship models. It is starting to look like a museum again instead of a timber shop.
30th January 2020 – I had some more courses today for working with a digital collection system for Museumschip Tordino. Very soon, I will be visible on Erfgoed in Zicht. Besides the useful information you get, it is also part of networking.
27th January 2020 – A museum is more then just working aboard to show artifacts to people. Last Saturday I got a collection of over 100 books. They all need to be put in the inventory. This evening I started this job.
26th January 2020 – In the morning I drove to pick up some books for the Library. When I was back, I started finishing corners and small areas that had to be done. Two more evenings and I believe all the t&g is finished.
25th January 2020 – The easy bit of insulating the ceiling is just opening the hatches and unrolling the packs of insulation. After two hours the ceiling was well insulated and we continued on the inside. Mother put primer on the t&g, I made some planks for the ship models.
20th January 2020 – Since I’m out of wood, I could only do a few minor jobs. Small jobs that take a lot of time. I had to drive back home early since a lot of fog was coming up.
18th January 2020 – We started with the ceiling. Same thing as the last two conversions. Cutting the wooden planks, lifting them up and sliding them into the frame. The nice thing about this job is the result. It looks finished from the moment you put them up. I went halfway the hold. The rest will be for another day.
My father continued insulating the hold. Nearly there…
17th January 2020 – We painted major parts of the t&g in hold. I pulled some electricity wires for the computer screens.
Wood was delivered in the evening and it took us more then two hours to unload it into the ship.
13th January 2020 – A last difficult bit is building the frame around the old lifeboat. I can’t get to it, but I can’t move the boat either. It took me some time, but I managed to build the wall and building the top side was easy since I could stand in the boat. A lot was done this evening.
Since the lock in Bruges was broken, a pusher came alongside with a pontoon. They stayed for the night.
