Snowy First Day of Spring

Orman returned the shallop Jane Stevens from the Maine Boat Builders Show in Portland, to the garage at the school this morning. The Rigging class all helped lift it off the trailer and place it back on the blocks for storage. It had a fair amount of snow in it from the storm last night and yesterday. It is beautiful snow and will melt quickly.

Today we finished two of the shrouds, which are the pieces of rope that hold up the mast. There are three of them. The next class the rigging group is switching to wood working and the woodworking crew is going to be doing rigging. All of the grommets are done. Now they just need to be wormed and served.
