In this episode we face a major dilemma - having found that one of the White Oak logs had porous grain (bad news!) Leo has to make the painful decision of whether or not to replace 19 deck beams that we already made from it. Meanwhile, Tally Ho’s planking stock arrives and is stacked ready for planking. The frames get faired and the bilge stringers get made, scarphed, and finally bent into the hull of the boat. Finally all is well, and Patrick teaches us some useful boat terminology.

In this episode we finish building the majority of the deck structure! We cut lots of dovetails, and the deck layout emerges as we add carlins and half beams one by one. We also begin making the templates for casting the solid bronze floors, and start the renovation of one of the original teak hatches - which I am hoping to reuse on the the deck. In other news, Pete’s dog meets Pancho, and Cecca does some metalwork.
