Tordino – Working light

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!


Stern – Planning and miter saw

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! 

Stern – Making a two trips

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. 

Stern – Making a box for the radio

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…


Stern – Sanding down a mast

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.
