Month: September 2022

Stern – Engine running

30th September 2022 – I’m planning on using the Stern for a project at the end of the month. I started the engine, but with a nearly flat battery it took some charging time to start. In the end it started an ran nicely.  What do I love Lister engines!

I was never happy with the floor I had made in the wheelhouse and the result today was obvious. I ended in the living room, head first… Another item on my todo list for the next couple of months.

Tordino – Scanning

27th September 2022 – I did some scanning yesterday and continued today.  After moving the library units, I didn’t want to put back the unscanned magazines, so all I can do now is scanning and scanning… Since it is raining, there are no other jobs to do anyway.

Tordino – Cleaning and rebuilding the library and its exposition

25th September 2022 – I put the remaining cupboards of the Library of the Watergeus in the library of Tordino. It gives an extra storage addition for new books. While rebuilding some parts of the library, I now also have much more space to add new items on Houten walen to the running exhibition.

In the afternoon, we cleaned some of the presentation boxes. Slightly preparing for the next summer!

Tordino – Small jobs

23rd September 2022 – I found some time to do a few small jobs aboard Tordino. Two broken computer boxes were replaced, the library is cleaner again and a few lights were added or replaced. I made some space for new cupboards and that’s it for now…

Tordino – Open Monumentendag

11th September 2022 – It was a big success. A good amount of people came to see Tordino. Like every year many people who didn’t book tried to get in as well. This year, we tried to allow most of them to get to see the museum aboard Tordino.
