Urban BoatWorks whale boat build at the Sea Port Museum in Philadelphia.
This week we used putty to fill in the seams of the boat. We also used a mix of beeswax and rosin powder to fill in all the screw holes. We accomplished a lot by our strong effort of teamwork. I had a blast! :)
We learned about caulking the seams of boats with cotton and how to tie a bowline knot to help tie down boats or to tie a rescue knot.
