The keel group is trying to flatten and bring the keel to it’s final dimension which is 8” by 10”. To do so, they are using hand planes.
The history of the day is, "Why did they build the Virginia?" The reason why they built the Virginia was for trading, especially in furs. They also built it for exploration, gold, transportation and to trying to find the Northwest passage.
Vocabulary for the day is Baseline. Baseline is the bottom line of the lofting floor, which you measure up for water lines.
