Month: October 2023

Tordino – Back aboard

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.

Stern – Cleaning

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….

Tordino – Cleaning the decks, mounting a second screen for digitalisating and development of a tool

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.

Tordino – Painting green

1st October 2023 – I painted the roof of the back accommodation and the hathces at the front. The green I had ordered is not really what I expected. Likely I will repaint the hatches with a different colour.
