Tordino – Work in the library

9th April 2022 – I started in the Library removing the old exhibition that lasted for nearly four years. Now it is time for a new one, one about the old wooden barges. I mounted two nu cupboards from Ikea and started building the new expo. 

Tordino – Building a server room in the old workshop

5th April 2022 – When In started converting Tordino, I had a small workshop at the end of the ship. On top of the workshop were two watertanks. The idea then was to have a bar at the end of the ship and therefore I needed water. The bar became a library, the watert tanks were removed for storage and now the workshop is being turned into a server room.

Tordino – Securing the masts and scanning

4th April 2022 – I have eight little masts on the gangway. There are mounted with plastic straps. Every storm I lose a few of these masts. Neighbours, friends or colleagues find them back in the water and drop them off aboard. I now mounted metal straps. Let’s see if it holds now…

In the evening I continued scanning books.



Tordino – Scanning books

2nd April 2022 – Another day of scanning books. My idea was to keep the library closed when I open the museum in a few weeks, but people like to see the models stored in the library. I will try to sort out the books I received last year and in January. I will need to do a lot of scanning and sorting out…



Tordino – Cleaning the entrance and scanning books

27th March 2022 – The work on Tordino continues. I cleaned the entrance of the ship. The tools for working on the Stern and new packages with books were stored around the steps. There was barely any room to walk around. In the evening I scanned books in the library. Sorting out the Library will be the next big job. I can’t wait to open for the public. 

Tordino – Preparing the museum for opening

24th March 2022 – It was a busy afternoon. A lot of small jobs have been done, but there is still a lot that needs doing!  I cleaned the concrete talud, wiped the gangways, mounted the flag posts, moved some cupboards in the hold, removed old content and replaced it with new one, etc… 

A lot more needs doing but that is a job for Sunday!
