It’s time to line out TALLY HO's deck planking - deciding the positions and sizes of all the deck strakes, the cover boards, the king planks, and so on. To figure this out we take a look at a wide variety of different wooden boat decks in the yard, consider the different parts, and then draw the layout on the deck planks using battens.
I also take a quick weekend break sailing the beautiful schooner MARTHA around the San Juan islands, and we take a look down below and meet her captain.
Back in the yard, in the midst of a storm, we receive a large delivery - the Alaskan Yellow Cedar for TALLY HO’s deck!

    • You mentioned recently possibly having a sale of some excess wood. I'm rebuilding the transom on my 1969 boat and would happily exchange some currency (and/or labor) for a piece of purple heart or white oak. Want to make sure I don't miss it when that sale happens!

  • I''ve been thinking. After all of this work, don't do something stupid and injure yourself or get yourself killed. One crash on a motorcycle, one fall, one turn in a car into a truck, and the whole boat build will have been for nothing. So, take care of yourself. Love Ya. (:-)>

  • Nice if you would explain the term pay outing and devil. As in the DEVIL to PAY and no pitch hot. Or between the DEVIL and the deep blue sea.

    Ed SchultzEd SchultzVor Monat
    • To pay a caulked seam, a flexible goo is spatched into the gap, or hot tar is poured into it. The 'devil' is a seam that's "the devil to get at" - such as the seam between the topmost hull plank & the outermost deck plank (covering board) which is hard to access b/c of the bulwarks & their stanchions. "The devil to pay & no pitch hot" laments being stuck w/ a job of work w/o having the neccessary tools & materials, while choosing "between the devil & the deep blue sea" means selecting between unpleasant alternatives, such as hard labor & drowning.

  • Does it cost a lot more money to build a wood timber frame boat compared to a steel, fiberglass or aluminum boat? I know wood cost a lot today for these exotic woods. I have a wood EggHarbor 37 and was thinking how much it would cost to buy wood for my smaller boat.

  • Why are the hatches offset from the centerline again? I know there was a reason

    Gruntslayer 35Gruntslayer 35Vor Monat
    • The framed opening for the fore hatch is offset to accomodate a glass skylight to one side, although the fore hatch itself is on center. Meanwhile, the framed opening for the main hatch is on center, while its hatch was slightly offset to starboard ! (Note that in the new design dwgs, the main hatch & companion ladder have been relocated to the on-center position.)

  • Last night, a few drunken guests of my neighbours took and destroyed one of my plants, at which I caught them red handed but too late to save my plant (a Passiflora mollissima that I grew from seed). As it is impossible to put a price tag to the specimen (they are not sold as plants in the Netherlands), it's quite hard to determine the amount of money that would compensate my loss. In stead, I asked them to donate a reasonable amount of money to the restoration of Tally Ho.

  • I started from the first episode about six weeks ago and have now finally caught up and am now in the position of eagerly waiting for the next video. It's been all everyone has said, and more, but I must just add how much I'm enjoying hearing all the different American accents of the team and their distinctive ways of expressing themselves. As another Englishman who works with a lot of Americans, I identify with you Leo. Looking forward to the day when you and Tally Ho return home.

  • So…the kind of ‘Planking’ that does not necessarily take rock hard abs of steel…and can last over 100 years..without the grunting and showing off… Another great video. I’m glad your’e doing the traditional deck though I’d like to see some more pine tar in the mix..I know there are more modern materials but I’m betting they won’t be found by archeologists in serviceable condition after 400 years of harsh weather and use..

  • Leo, I only chanced upon this channel a few months ago and have been truly captivated. I have spent the last couple of weeks binge-watching all episodes from the beginning and cannot begin to describe my admiration. My particular favourite was Episode 58 where you discussed the distinctions between restoration and rebuild, which I believe you have wrestled with and have changed as monies have flowed in from donors enabling you to do more than you probably hoped for in the beginning. As a fellow Englishman you will probably understand the infamous phrase "Trigger's Broom". I'll leave it there!

  • Stop scribbling all over my boat - I've invested over a 100 hours watching this get made, and I like it without graffiti. More seriously, what a monumental piece of laying out. I know that even if I had the skills, I'd be paralysed by indecision at nearly every step. Yet again I Iearn how paintstakingly engineered these wooden boats are.

  • Not to technically at all! On the contrary: I would have loved a more detailed explanation on how you laid out the planks and what are all the marked outcuts on the deckbeams and so on. I think, the episode(s) where you explained lofting where among the most fascinationg and interesting episodes of all. Your audience consists of nerds, don't fear to feed them ;-)
