Good day today.
Got the topmast shrouds and the stays and all the rig to make the up high work. I got to do a whole bunch of hauling, which I like. Hauling is easy, and it makes sense. Make a good hitch onto the line you're hauling up, make sure it's a fair lead... Pull real hard. I dig it. My hands feel like they did something today, and their getting hard again, aside from one hole in one of my fingers. It feels good.
I also was put in charge of the flags on the ship. I had to sort, organize, and stow all the flags we're going to need for the voyage in the summer. Turns out it's a whole lot. It was kind of fun, really. Hopefully my system works out well.
