|Using the Opaque Projector to shoot the letters onto the canvas
A new project has been undertaken up on deck. Capt. Freymann has employed the sailmaker and a few of the men with steady hands to create a canvas banner as an advertisement for Volunteers. This banner will be used the next time we go ashore to recruit.
After sick call at the mast this morning, I stood over them and watched as they sketched out the letters based on what the Captain had written, then, with tiny brushes and black paint in hand, they went about painting in the letters.
