Robert's feedback on todays classwork!

Today in Vessel Engineering, all the individual students continued to work on their loftings of their New York Sloops. This is a one masted vessel with two sails, a foresail and a jib. However, the students utilized plenty of materials to help them draw out and measure each part of their boats. Now that we have done a lot of things and learned the material needed to actually build the real boat, the class can get into smaller groups and work together. Each student will have a specific role and responsibility in their group to divide the work and effort needed in oder to accomplish their goal!

Brendan told me to blog

My name is Cesar Im in grade 11 and i attend Urban Assembly New York Harbor School. My teacher Brendan teaches Marine Vessel Engineering class and right now we are sketching the NY Sloop. My boy Brendan said to tell you guys so now your told. Cant wait for you guys to see the real thing once we start cutting out with White Oak. Oh and Daniel another student said to say his name in this thing and that he learned the same thing.

As of today, 10\18\10, in Vessel Engineering and Design, we are constructing the NY Sloop. Different groups will be creating loftings of the profile view and the section views of the NY Sloop. Different tools being used to create these loftings are batten, a divider, a T square, and a yard stick. We will be using measurements from the NY sloop blueprints to construct a model twice the size of the original. We are working on our measuring skills and our problem solving skills.
