Month: April 2022

Tordino – Library

23rd April 2022 – In between visitors, I continued working in the library, adding an extra cupboard and moving a big model. I now have again enough room for one or two years of collecting magazines.

Slowly getting there in optimising storage aboard Tordino.


Tordino – A busy day

18th April 2022 – A very busy day, we had a lot of visitors today. I barely had any time to work on the content of the museum.  I tried sorting out the magazines, a lot of work since I have over 400 different magazine titles…

Tordino – Scanning, mounting paintings and working in the server room

17th April 2022 – While the museum is open, in between visits, I was working in the server room, Library and hold.  I temporary stored several magazines where I’ve put my servers. Now I’m scanning the covers and putting them back in the Library.

I added some more labels and some paintings in the hold. Some of the more unique pieces from the Watergeus are now in the hold of Tordino. I’m removing more and more non inland waterways stuff, replacing it with more important content.

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.
