There's a lot time and patience required. Waalid is sitting at the tool bench on the left. In the last weeks, four new participants have started coming – bringing us to 8-participants. We're finding our working rhythm. Below you can see how Waalid comes into the process... waiting, studying the plans and checking out our bulkhead handiwork. Then he reveals that he knows the arithmetic for drawing the boat's master curve and makes a tool to do so.
We don't have many pictures of the first few weeks primarily because we were more stressed with setting up the workshop, planning the boat, translating imperial to metric measurements and so on. The boat plan comes from an experienced designer in Florida so all the measurements are in inches. It's a perfect boat to travel the Florida Keys and on to Cuba. Hanna and Dan lofted the bulkheads – using coordinates to enlarge various cross-sections of the boat – around which the hull will be built.
