The ten photos above show the intricate work needed to repair the lodging knees that have been removed from the Alma Doepel. All soft or rotten timber, all cracks and bolt holes are plugged or have graving pieces inserted to maintain as much of the original timber at full strength. The knees are then to be returned to their original positions in the hull. More progress photos will appear later.
