Tree roots to lodging knees …..

December 20, 2015

As detailed on Alma Doepel Facebook page on December 6th 2015, Gus Hughes provided a suitable tree root to be used to make lodging knees. These knees will replace condemned ones from the hull of the Alma Doepel. The shipwrights apparently have been thrilled to be making these in a very traditional manner as the opportunity to do so is very rare. The following photos show the initial shaping of the tree roots. A chain saw was used to do this.
