The final 2 yards were raised on Matthew Turner today!
This week at the Tall Ship tent and workshop: rigging and fittings work progresses steadily, relaxation during daily crew lunch, some education with a great presentation on climate change in the arctic by David Thoreson, and Brad Bergman is loaning us a sewing machine, in anticipation of canvas work for Matthew Turner's interior and exterior.
Today's work on Matthew Turner's yards and main staysail boom. Dan Higgins with one of the yokes he has welded. The four long pieces on the sawhorse are the spreaders. He is also working with Newcomb Barger on the gooseneck fitting for the main staysail boom.
