Tordino – Ship models

27th August 2021 – I received a large number of ship models from sailing and navy ships. They are not suited for the museum since it has no relation to inland vessels. I can’t keep them in open air and ordering a glass cover for each of them is to expensive and not realistic.  I started rebuilding my living room, not sure yet where to put the other ones….

Tordino – Another nocturne

31st July 2021 – Last week, I salvaged an old table from the canal. I now installed it in my kitchen. I used the old adjustable table leg from the Stern. So I got a free table, twice the size of the original one for free! 

We had another nocturne event in the evening. It was a success and people were happy!


Tordino – Scanning and tourism in Plassendale

8th July 2021 – I’m not really working on any of my ships at the moment. The few nice moments, I’m having a drink in Plassendale or making plans for stimulating the tourism here.  They days it is raining, I’m scanning my books and magazines in the museum.

So there will be less updates at the moment…

Tordino – Strange weather for a summer

6th July 2021 – When I left for work this morning driving along the Canal, I noticed the sun was shining brightly on the water. This afternoon it changed and it became extremely windy. When now sitting in the hold of Tordino, I hear and feel the wind. It is a bit a scary feeling! The ship is rolling because of the wind, something I never had before with any of my ships. Since Tordino is now 5 meters away from the land side, wind can easily play around….

My battery charger broke, an expensive one that I had just replaced the beginning of December 2020… I hope Victron will replace it. They give 5 years of warranty… A small charger is now running but I know it is not enough for everything.
