As Leo's away from the boat for a while, this is a Q&A episode! Will TALLY HO sail with a GPS? Where will her first (post-rebuild) voyage be? Will Leo be building a replica of the original tender? Could a dolphin, if properly trained, operate his forklift?! For answers to these THRILLING questions, and more, join Leo for a cup of tea and a chat in episode 64.

In this episode Cecca and Leo travel to New York, where they house-and-dog-sit for some friends. Leo drives up to Connecticut to meet Duke at New England Naval Timbers, who supplies large pieces of semi-seasoned White Oak. Leo selects enough curved and straight logs to make Tally Ho’s Deck Structure, and then they mill it into the appropriately sized flitches. They also get a ride on a state-of-the-art New York Tugboat (courtesy of McAllister Towing), and Leo even tags along with a Harbour-pilot while he navigates a huge container-ship out of NYC harbour.
