Glad you are getting it, Charles. I knew you would in time ;-)
Here is a GIF showing your boat turning over in the first two signs.
The thumbs paint in the top quarter section of the circle. The first
example shows a finishing position, but the second example is ok
too...I like it because people don't need a lot of detail to read
Sign Language texts.
The third example shows the curves that are on the side-quarter of
the circle in space - it describes the side-quarter....once again,
you do not have to have the second position - if your goal is
accuracy that is fine to write it - but if your goal is reading signs
you already know - then the finishing position may not be necessary
