This episode, Leo investigates the part of Tally Ho’s history where she was almost wrecked on a remote Pacific Atoll, in 1968. Amazingly, he has been given photographs of Tally Ho high and dry on the reef, taken from the boat that towed her to safety! Because of the accident, part of the hull was rebuilt, but unfortunately not to the original lines. Leo assess the change in shape, does a little bit of lofting, and removes a lot of hull planks to give him space to rebuild the boat back into her original shape. Unfortunately, he also discovers that the other side of the boat isn’t perfect either.
