Today in class there were a plethora of positions that were given to students; one of which was joining the pieces for the skeg. Meanwhile other students gathered together to clean the up the room, while others finished up the keelson scarf joints. After they measured and drew out the scarf joints they cut down to the line every 1/4 inch and then used chisels to level out the rest of the joint.

Today there were many people doing a number of things, from sweeping up all the wood shreds to maintaining the room organized to cutting wood to make a scarf joint. All the people had their own task and were doing their own thing - all to come up with the final product - building a boat.
