I had some very busy weeks. I will update the site as soon as I can!
29th November 2023 – Finaly fot some time to continue working on our database project!
28th November 2023 – The idea was to decorate Tordino again with Christmas decoration. I managed to mount a few pieces when I received a call of an oil spil in Bruges. No lunch break no decoration!
25th November 2023 – I got some time to work in the library, building the entrance and starting with the ceiling.
I also finished the front light. Somewhere in June I mounted an empty shell of a light. Now I put a LED bulb in the shell as anchor light.
24th November 2023 – There was a b**** Friday deal in the local DIY shop so I got some more wood. I hope to have some time in the weekend to work. As usual you spend a fortune but you can barely see what you bought.
9th November 2023 – There have been few updates lately. I’m mainly working on our project to make an inventory of the Belgian inland vessels. Nearly every evening I’m working between 2 and 4 hours on this project: developing the app and adding the data. Thankfully it is becoming winter, so I can’t do much on Tordino or the Stern.
5th November 2023 – I worked in the Library and finsihed another wall.
2nd November 2023 – There was a heavy storm today. I stayed around Tordino the whole day. I had no major damage, but she will need a good clean once the wind has gone down. I only had some rain coming in through the door and windows of the wheelhouse.
While I was there, I continued with t&g in the Library
28th October 2023 – I loaded some plywood aboard and continued working at the front. The shield is now covered in wood with some insulation. It took me much longer then expected. I also had to be very creative to get to the ceiling.
15th October 2023 – I finished most of the plywood for the bulkhead. The whole room will be done in the same style as the rest of the ship, using t&g.
14th October 2023 – It is getting colder, so I closed the air vents aboard the Stern and did some cleaning. Hopefully I will have more time next year to take her out a few more times then this year. Maybe I’ll make a trip somewhere next week. To be continued….
14th October 2023 – I started early in the morning, having a small breakfast, cleaning the decks of the Stern and Tordino. Then I worked in the front of the ship insulating the bulkhead.
9th October 2023 – My parents spent a whole day cleaning the deck. They will need a few more days.
In the evening I mounted a second screen so I can see the scanned postcards on one screen and the tool on the other screen. I reused an old television I got from my neighbours.
I also continued developing the tool for the Belgian fleet of inland vessels.
7th October 2023 – As an annual daytrip, we went to Maassluis to the event Furieade. Visited some ships, the museum and made a boat trip. I came home with books, frames, some decoration for the museum, etc… A day very well spent.
5th October 2023 – Still insulating the extension of the library.
