Rudder, Lee Boards and Rigging the Mast

Today we took the rudder and chiseled out slots for pieces so that it could be connected to the shallop. Then we put holes in the lee boards so that we pull them in and out of the water. We filled the holes with epoxy so the bolts would not loosen. Others worked on the oars. Jon wrapped a foot section of the mast with rope. A lot of rigging on the mast has been done.
