Geno Mondello’s Dory Shop-The Knees Of The Dory

Inside the dory the knees are placed as a frame.  It is interesting to note as Geno told me in the first part of our video interview that the knees are made from the tree trunk.  The tree trunk has a natural bend when it enters the earth which lends strength to where the curve is going to be on the inside of the boat.

  • Geno, I have not forgotten. I owe you a 6 pack of Sam Adams for the old oar you gave me to refinish. Been traveling a lot, will stop by soon.

    Thanks again, can’t wait to get it sanded and repainted.
