The shipbuilding on school ships
At present, sailing ships of all the navies of the world, both of the navy and those belonging to schools and associations of a civil nature, teach and practice nautical knots and traveling works.
People who have had the opportunity to visit a sailing school ship have been able to check, among other things, the perfect start of their maneuver and the different works of travel, among which stand out, the ridge of the bell, the capes and handrails adorned or topped with handmade and striking pineapples or braids, the struts of the sollados and dining rooms adorned with multiple kites, the cat scales made with wood and rope, the palletes, in addition to a wide range of knots, turns of maneuver in rods, cleats, even artistic works made with ropes on the deck as simple decoration during visiting hours.
In all this, the good work of the crew of the maneuvering specialty is appreciated, the oldest and the most marine of the specialties, whose maximum representative is the boatswain or nostramo.
