The Knee

On a rather dull and gloomy day in Harwich, the shipwrights and carpenters of the project continue the Mayflower build by installing the knee. The knee, as shown in the diagram below (kindly drawn for me by Tony Wilding) is a strengthening support between the deadwood and the sternpost.  The pieces numbered 1 to 3 are fill ins that will be added after the knee is in place.
