REMARKS: This morning the whole crew worked together on switching out the skiff we’ve been using for the one housed on top of the galley. Port watch then broke off to do some small boat sailing in the Bay while Starboard watch got busy on the ship’s work for the day. At 1630 the Captain led a workshop on how to properly do a serving. He demonstrated first, talking through all of the steps, then each of those who had never done one lined up with someone with experience and we took a turn. Learn by watching and learn by doing – the best combinations for memory retention.
SHIP’S WORK: Tarring royal footropes, t’gallant & main topmast shrouds,; rust converted foc’sl shower porthole; prepared main capstay to go aloft & served lower section; spot painted quarter deck rail; prepared skiff for painting.
