Barge decking …

Small sections of the barge decking are being unbolted and removed. This will enable the supports for the Alma Doepel to be fastened to the barge’s steel frame. The new supports will enable the planking under the waterline to be removed. The hull frames can be inspected and repaired if necessary.  As the supports are welded and assembled further blog posts will show the progress.

Metal knees removed …

Knees are being removed from the hull to be cleaned, de-rusted, primed and painted  The timbers that the knees have been bolted to, need to be inspected and if needed repaired. As each knee is fitted individually they all need to belabeled and returned to the exact position in the hull.
