Support Tally Ho

In this episode, after a little work on the frames, Cecca and Leo take a trip to Vancouver for leo's VISA interview at the US consulate. When they get back to the USA Cecca has to head back home to the UK, but we start building a new team with three guys who arrive to help out – including one who has been here already. We get the huge Purpleheart timbers for the rest of the centerline delivered by truck, and we discover a very old bullet embedded deep in one of the pieces of Live Oak framing stock. At the end of this video we have replaced almost every frame in the centre-section of Tally Ho!

In this episode, Leo starts by installing and running a new helical cutter-head in the planer thicknesser, before making a pair of oak frames with the help of some volunteers, and notching those intermediate frames into the keel timber. Then he takes a trip to Port Townsend, where he visits the Western Flyer, a historic fishing boat which once took John Steinbeck and Ed Ricketts around the Gulf of California. Finally he visits Edensaw, to buy the huge purpleheart timbers which will make up the remaining pieces of Tally Ho’s new centerline!
