Once the oars go on I can see an issue with transporting the ship, I wonder if the oarbanks could have been secured to the hull with magnets?

I hope i can make the oars removable as i drill deep the portholes.

12 - Shaping the oars

the most boring of the work on the galley.
one by one, the "oars" are shape with a bench grinder to give them a good looking  ;)

i have only 40 oars to shape   o_o o_o

This is a great project, I really like the creative use of coffee stirrers, its very inspiring as I've a bag of 1000 lying in a cupboard myself.
