27th September 2021 – I finished the floor of the toilet area, made a box to cover the pipes and made a small cupboard for some products. Happy with the result!
26th September 2021 – When working in the evening, it is getting dark early. I mounted a work light on the gangway. So I can continue working in the evening.
I also finished cutting the grass around the ship. Looking clean again!
25th September 2021 – I got the old skylight from the engine room of the Stad Rotterdam. It will be restored and then put in the museum!
25th September 2021 – I finally finished the floor in the wheelhouse. The ropes for the flags in the mast have been replaced and I mounted the LED lights around the wheelhouse.
22nd September 2021 – I finished the wooden box for around the music installation of the Stern. It is a car radio and two boxes from my previous van…
21st September 2021 – I had to leave early for my job and found this magnificent view when leaving the boat.
20th September 2021 – I just bought a new blade for my saw. Finally I can cut some wood again! This is the only machine I don’t have a spare one hanging around and I need it daily. After cutting the hatch for the engine room, I went for an evening walk making some plans. Plans weren’t made but it was a beautiful moon!
19th September 2021 – There was a horse in the ditch and the roads along the canal were closed. I had a quick look with the Stern.
19th September 2021 – I made a small trip to Stalhille and back, then made one on the harbour of Ostend and came back. It was a different location this time and nice to see, but not sure if I want to do it regularly.
18th September 2021 – I made two benches for outside Tordino. They are far from finished, but I was already happy my machine got through the wood.
17th September 2021 – I mounted the living room door back in the ship but it doesn’t fit anymore. The floor became to high so I need to adjust a lot of stuff now so the door can work again….
16th September 2021 – Instead of working, we made a small journey with the vlet. It had been a while…
15th September 2021 – Let’s say I was a bit tired from last night. It is always nice to chat to some people, make plans and listen to their ideas. Gives me energy. Energy that was somehow lost today…
Mainly worked on sanding down some planks for the floor of the wheelhouse. I also made a box for the car radio that will be installed in the wheelhouse. At least, when the ship is moving, I can listen to music. My neighbour gave me some advise how to build a proper antenna. This is for the weekend…
15th September 2021 – Probably one the earliest pictures taken in the morning. I certainly want to add some more light to the Stern as well as to Tordino.
14th September 2021 – The weather is not that great. I made the bottom for the kitchen cupboard. Then I started something else…
I want to put a second mast for the Stern, a small one, to hold some extra equipment and an extra antenna. It is the old mast from the Hornblower. I started sanding it down until it rained.
