EPISODE 91 (part 2)
In this second part of the video we continue to hang more planks on the boat, getting closer and closer to closing up all the gaps and making the hull watertight. We discuss more questions that have been asked about planking, and an adventurous chicken closely inspects our work. Matt explains the new Butt-Block clamp, Pete talks about Whisky planks, and Pancho struts her stuff in the snow.

92. Planking the Hull - Part 2 (Rebuilding Tally Ho / EP91.2)

  • Maybe to help community tensions you could give every 4th vid over to the community.. It’s history, tradition, the culture and showcase some other local projects. In that way you would be doing a little bit for the tourism council such that the wider populous can capitalise on the interest people have in your boat. I am sure there are some wannabe film makers that would love to cut there teeth with your audience for free. I also had a whimsical neighbour who made me take my newly erected fence down even though I had pre agreed with her that we would site it on the boundary line and I would pay for materials and labour. Subsequent to her agreeing with the plan someone told her that because it was half on her side of the boundary she would be responsible and even though I showed her the deeds which clearly made marked me as liable had to undo all my work and move it back 2 inches. Yet because all the ground was disturbed it became a bitch of a job! Reason is not a good defence against stubbornness it seems.

  • Leo, it saddens me to hear how much the troubles with the county have affected you. I wish I had the knowledge or ability to help in someway. Respectfully, Ken Carroll

  • Leo, I've been watching your progress from the beginning and I am a delighted supporter. I'm saddened to hear of your struggles with the one neighbour who really sounds like a vexatious litigant. Especially when you have so much interest and support by nearly the entire community and of course all of us from around the world. (I am in Australia). If anything happens to this project before it is complete I think there would be a huge outcry. It has been more than just the building of another boat. This is an historic reclamation and a work of art. I wish you a peaceful resolution, and hope that within the judiciary there is enough common sense and goodwill to ensure this project is completed. You are a true gentleman, and a highly skilled artisan. It would be be a miserable act on the part of the County to discredit your project at this advanced stage of development.

  • Poncho is going to go through people withdraw when this project is over. Macaws are very people dependent and do not like it when their environment changes dramatically. Anyways - this is one of my favorite channels to watch even though I never had an interest in wood boats before seeing this. I think it’s because this has been more of a journey about people as much as it’s been about a boat. I wish you a happy future and look forward to every step it takes to complete the boat. I have been watching since the beginning and love it every time that you post a new video

Annie, you've got a great smile. What's your name in the witness protection program, you'd better grow a mustache, half the world knows where you are by now. I hope all your Mums and Dads are doing well. "Hey, Leo, what cha doing in there?" -- Love it. Cheka, hope you are well and will one day be able to rejoin this crew.

  • The frames seem to be separating a lot over time as the wood ages. they focus so much on the little things to make sure they dont collect water, these seem like a pretty big issue? is the plan to fill them in later once they have shifted more? is it not a big deal? is it worse to fill in a big separation in the frame?

    AL BarettaAL Baretta7 dagar sedan
    • While stainless steel doesn't corrode as quickly as iron, it will release iron ions when wet. These ions corrode wood, weakening its structure & giving microbial rot a better foothold. Leo will avoid "iron sickness" by using only non-ferrous fittings & fasteners.

  • I'm astonished by the amount of of free tools, accomodation, vehicles, labour, supplies and services that Leo has received, not to mention actual money and not to disregard his girlfriend slaving away for months. It would be interesting to tot up the value of all of that. This is an interesting cultural phenomenon, helping a stranger achieve a personal dream and essentially gain an asset worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. The barn-raising analogy from earlier on does not quite apply. You helped your neighbour because you hoped they would help you in turn when needed. Another thing I observed is also cultural - he's had volunteers from all over the world but apart from I think one East Asian very early on, everyone has been white. I wonder is this something that only appeals to white people, do other ethnicities not care about sailing or woodwork?

    Rob BRob B10 dagar sedan
  • Leo, If you are feeling very science-y and curious, you can do the following: - Take a cut off from your planking, full width, but only about two inches long. - Measure its width with a micrometer or other very accurate device. - Measure its weight with a lab scale. Put it in a very warm, dry space for about a week. Not hot enough to scorch, but very warm. Maybe on top of a baseboard radiator, or in a warming oven (about 120F). Remeasure after a week, and you will have a very good estimate of moisture content and expected maximum shrinkage. (Moisture content = loss of mass / post-drying total mass) Thanks for sharing all the excellent work of you and your crew. -A woodworker and former lab nerd

With all the curves and varying board widths it seems really really complicated to me. Love your videos, greetings from Germany

I also follow Acorn to Arrabella - I think those guys could could use some of your knowledge. Way cool project. Looking forward to the rigging stuff & seeing her under sail. Steven P.S. I'm a retired Navy Gunners Mate and a 32 year air conditioning / refrigeration mechanic in the yachting world. I would like to see your requirements for climate control and refrigeration. I design and build custom systems for fun. It would be a feather in my cap to have a piece of machinery on Tally Ho! that I built.

Jolie Brisse - the boat the changed John cunliffe life .... maybe you already know of this 1913 pilot cutter but it was wonderfull watching her sail the vid may even remind you of bits and pieces to put in the diary for future scavenging to keep the project on track ... look forward to see this pilot cutter and the tally ho head to head maybe in a few years what a glorious sight to see two ex fastnet race winners of the same era back in battle ......
