Support Tally Ho

In this episode, Leo drives the 3000 miles back to Tally Ho from South Georgia, where Steve Cross has been milling Live Oak for him. He beds and bolts the 6’ Scarph in the new keel timber together, and the Live Oak arrives by flatbed. Then we create a framework inside to boat to spread the load of the props while Leo removes the Keel Timber from underneath it, all the while hoping that nothing breaks and that the boat doesn’t deform at all in shape.

In this episode, Leo is in southern Georgia , and I work with Steve Cross of Cross Sawmill to mill and grade lots of Southern Live Oak (Quercus Virginiana) for Tally Ho’s framing stock – one of the most historically important and best-regarded shipbuilding timbers in the world, which is no longer often milled commercially due to its extreme toughness.
