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….

26th February 2019 – The initial plan today was to move the Arma back on her mooring. The yard wasn’t finished so I continued with the roofs of the cabins.
In between painting, I washed the whole ship. I was surprised to see how dirty the ship was after a short winter…
25th February 2019 – I removed the old paint and some rust from the roofs of the cabins near the wheelhouse. Painting will be for tomorrow.
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.
15th February 2019 – The namesigns on the bow are back. New paint and new letters. Looks good!
In the afternoon, I built some Library furniture to put the books I recently acquired. I never tought I would have to buy that many furniture for the Library.
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.
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.
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.
14th January 2019 – Sorting out books, putting them in the Inventory system and then get them in the Library. Eight boxes do take some time, but I’m getting there. Building a Library in less then two years means something!
17th December 2018 – Another evening working in the Library aboard Tordino. I’ve added around 30 magazines and 20 books to the inventory. The magazines were put into boxes, labeled with date and name. It is a lot of work and many more hours will follow.
16th December 2018 – I hadn’t started the engines since the beginning of September. The bowthruster and the generator started straight away. The main engine didn’t. Batteries are broken and need to be replaced. Another cost to add…
10th December 2018 – I continued putting magazines into the inventory system for the Library. The more I work on it, the more I start feeling like a real librarian.
6th December 2018 – A big group of people came to visit Museumschip Tordino. It is nice to see that people are truely interested in this project.
3rd December 2018 – After writing some new software for Museumschip Tordino, I continued making an inventory of the magazines aboard the Library. It was warm inside, raining outside. Perfect for working without being interrupted by anyone.
