Using a mixture of 50% white glue / 50% water, dampen the crepe paper strip and wrap it around the ropes.

I attached blocks and line for the tiller. This was my first time using the Syren 2mm blocks. Manipulating them and threading line through them was a big challenge. There are some other areas of the ship that call for these small blocks and I’m not looking forward to it.
