Making grommets and oars

Today in shipbuilding we did some work on laying out the oars and ropework. The class split into two groups and started working on these two tasks. In the oar group we started drawing on some center lines and figuring out how we are going to fit the oars on the boards. We ran into some problems with trying to fit the oars on the wood because we are trying to fit two oars onto one board but it seems to be a little difficult to do so. In the other group you had people learning how to work with ropes. They learned how to make 17th century grommets with rope.
