The Alma Doepel has 53 frames – all needing repairs or replacing.  To give an indication of the great progress I have indicated the completed frames in bold blue and the remaining frames in light black ink. The frames are numbered from the bow ie no. 1 frame at the bow and frame 53 at the stern. Frame 46 was near completion in early January 2019, leaving only 7 frames to be completed.

The above photo shows the stern area where frames 46 to 53 are . Most of the planking and frames has been removed to allow measuring and templating. The photo below shows how the shipwrights make templates of the required shape.
