4th December 2023 – I made some good progress on the BBS tool, mainly developing and adding old postcards to the database. It finally all comes together, the postcards, the ships, the skippers… Once the project has all the data being inputted it should become a nice work for the next generations!
I’m not updating every day I do something on BBS, since it would become a boring weblog. But keep in mind, I’m working nearly every evening on it!
2nd December 2023 – I continued working in the library, building the last frame, this time for the starboard side. Now it is only t&g…
2nd December 2023 – With temperatures below 0°C during the night and day we have to be careful. So I go checking the boats on a regular base (early morning, lunch and late evening). I need to refill the pellet heather three times a day.
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….
