did you know ships have knees?

4Culture has become the recent, and VERY proud, recipient of a wooden ship’s knee from the 1897 schooner Wawona. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, come upstairs and take a gander …

Northwest Seaport and Seattle Parks and Recreation are currently working on documenting the underbody of the historic vessel, and identifying salvageable components for re-distribution to local heritage organizations and other interested groups. If you are one of these, contact Shannon Fitzgerald at Northwest Seaport for more information on this project.
