In this episode, Leo makes his decision about Tally Ho’s Keel Timber, and heads off in search of some suitable timber. Once he's got hold of the Purpleheart, we have to figure out a way to move it! He talks about Scarph Joints and has to modify a chainsaw to do the job.

In this video I talk about why I am rebuilding this boat, considering that it would probably be easier to build a new one. I also get some help to take off all the deck planks and demolish the deck beams, and I consider the next stages of work.

In this video I brace the hull of the boat in preparation for removing the deck and take off some deck hatches. I get a visit from a lovely English girl, and also get my first voluntary labour from a very tall neighbour. Oh, and I buy some funky Roller Skates!

In this episode, I start uncovering Tally Ho’s huge teak keel timber, jackhammering the concrete out of the bilge and removing the prop shaft. I go for a hike with a new friend, and I get a worrying visit from the building inspector about my new boat-shed.

In this episode, Leo starts removing the rather tired garboards, ready for removal of the internal concrete through the hole thus created.

"In this video; I have to take off to Maine for some sailing work aboard the mighty Three-masted Schooner Adix, and then furnish and move into the workshop loft when I get back. I also make a lofting table for the Tally Ho drawings, in a thinly disguised attempt to put off all the real work waiting for me outside."

Leo does a major tidy of the workshop alongside Tally Ho. That's a nice well-equipped shop Leo ... I'm amazed.
