Tordino – On the move

19th August 2017 – We moved the ship in the morning. The entrance of the hold should be better positioned now, so people can get easily aboard. Since my neighbour didn’t want to move and the gangway would be on his garden, I moved Tordino. Even if people try to make it hard, I always try to find a solution…

Aquarel – Visiting Zaandam

14th August 2017 – While I was in Amsterdam getting some books for my Library aboard Tordino, I stopped in Zaandam to have a quick look on the Aquarel.

She was looking good, but a bit squeezed in between two other ships. I was a bit disappointed about the paintwork of the hull. For a sandblasted ship which was coated with epoxy, I found red paint coming through on several locations. Something must have gone wrong during this process.

Or just have a look at the complete gallery:

Tordino – Painting the entrance

13th August 2017 – Still doing smaller jobs that fit the puzzle of my conversion. The entrance and platform were painted while I built the floor down the steps. The stage for the lifeboat is built. It took me some time since I couldn’t move her that much.

Wile closing the ship, I looked in one of the hatches and found the blue cover of my current lifeboat. At least she won’t be filling up with water again. I don’t like an open life boat outside.

Tordino – Working on the replica den

12th August 2017 – The construction for the old den of a ship with wooden hatches continued. I now put the plywood on. Once this is painted, I can build the supports. Inside the corridor to the toilets, wood work is finished as well. I don’t want to count how many packages of t&g I already used on this ship.
