Interesting! Do they construct ships? Or do they demonstrate the techniques used then? Would be quit a daunting task I would think. Cathy

Such a time consuming process. Double the effort on a hot, humid day.

I enjoy seeing the costumed interpreters working a trade. It is so educational.

Looks like a tough way to build a ship! Interesting, though.

How interesting! Were these shipbuilders highly paid craftsmen, or just considered like factory workers are today? Does this man actually make small parts of the ships?

I miss the smell of wood worked with. Thank you for the memories. Please have a good new month.

He looks so authentic! I always enjoyed watching craftsmen and women at work in historical settings. It is a mirror into the past.
