The objective of the 2002 field
season was the completion of the inked 1/10 scale final drawings, which were expected to be finished at the ShipLab
during the month of September of that same year.
However, since the 2001 field
season's objectives were largely achieved and even surpassed, we decided to aim for a complete set of inked drawings

All work developed according to
our planning, and the first drafts of all 37 frames, inked and finished on the computer were sent to Lisbon by
late August, corrected almost immediately by project director Paulo Rodrigues, and the corrections - on two frames
only - sent back to Lisbon on the first week of September.
In the summer of 2001 the objective
had been to make 1/1 scale drawings of all pre-designed frames.
However, much more was achieved, and by the end of the summer all 37
frames had been fully recorded at a 1/1 scale.
Although we had considered sending
all the 1/1 drawings to Texas A&M University so that the 1/10 scale and the final drawings could be completed
during the following year, the idea was abandoned in view of the volume and weight of the 1/1 scale drawings.
Nevertheless, eight full sets
of 1/1 scale drawings, totaling 30 large sheets of plastic, were sent to Texas to be finished at the ShipLab (Table
