Whaleboat Work

The molds are hanging out of the way in this picture, Jake is spacing guides on the bending trap for the frames (it was his last day as an intern), the last image is a bending jig for the stem & stern of the whaleboat.

The whaleboat molds and traps have been completed and one set was sent up to Rocking the Boat. The kids at RtB are going to build a whaleboat this summer. The Philly seaport provided the molds so both boats will be the same. The whale boats will be given to Mystic Seaport to outfit the MORGAN, a whaleship that is being restored now.
