Bamantha's Blog On March 1, 2011

         Today's block was progressive, better yet, successful. Each day we accomplish our daily goals and get closer to building our dream boat -- The New York Sloop. We completed the loft of the profile of the boat, a major part in the construction of our boat. We finally finished trimming down the keel. It is now smooth and even, unlike at the beginning of class where it was slanted and rough. Finally, we cut the peices for the transom using the table saw. The transom is the flat part at the back of the boat. Today is only the end of a beautiful beginning.

Today in class we were separated into two groups, one of which was working on the transom with brenden and the other is working on the keel of the boat, we learned alot of different ways to connect the wood together. For example, we used the butt joint, lap joint and biscuit joint. In brendan"s group they were actually creating some of the joint, today was was really cool because I went around and it was cool to see their serious, enthuastic, and working expressions. As the day continued it was really fun and we learned many things about the ships. Ray's group was making a part of the boat called the keel whcih is like the backbone  of the boat. The class was interesting and fun and Im glad I was able to observe from a different perspective.

Roberto Maduro Blog Paragraph

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.
