    Finishing the Stern Frames! (TALLY HO EP47)

    September 29, 2019


    [Music] hi my name is Leo and I’m a boat builder and a sailor and I’m on a mission to rebuild and restore this one hundred and nine year old classic sailing yacht Tallyho right now we’re in the middle of a very exciting period where we’re reframing the entire Stern section of the boat and so far we’ve replaced about half of the frames that we need to do and we’ve got just over a week left to do the other half if you haven’t met her before this is my very attractive assistant poncho and yes that is a boy’s name but the original owners thought she was a boy until she laid an egg so now we know better our owners my landlords but I look after pretty much every day while I’m here [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] so this is the old after Deadwood part of the stone assembly and as you can see there are these pockets or notches for the heels of the frames and there’s a lot of different opinions and mixed feelings about boxing frame heels at all it’s often seen to be something that weakens the Timbers at the centerline and it’s also a place where water can get trapped people usually now rely on the floor Timbers to fasten the frames onto the centerline but in its cases a couple of other considerations one is that Tallyho and it has a floor timber every two frames the other thing is that the original pockets very shallow they’re not full pockets protect the entire heel the better just a half inch rebate to take the bottom of the frame an advantage of that as it means that the bottom the frame doesn’t have to feather out in a very fine point because that is a weak spot especially in sawn frames where the grain orientation is always exactly the right way and so for those reasons and also slightly for the sake of originality I decided to more or less copy the original technique so I’ve done half inch pockets more or less throughout the center line there are a few places where the frames but up onto the top of the keel that it wasn’t necessary to pocket it because there’s no feather edge at the bottom of the frame and as I’ve explained before I’ve put an angle on the bottom of all the pockets so that if water does get in there it won’t get trapped and it should be able to run out of it [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] it’s rubbed off I don’t know I’ve been told painting on I’ve never seen such a efficient saw operator yeah so this is the last frame right so that’s ring with one frontal lip I’m ready any what is there anyone but I’d love to be able to listen and that’s it work right [Music] [Applause] which one to join fast [Music] it’s in the boat a picture of my god again Robert she got so suck no get any positive comments without though babies feel this way [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] but here we go this is the final frame of our frame raising modern guys [Music] and I’m really happy to say that the frame raising is complete we’ve got all the frames into the stern of the boat and if you’re ready we’re going to have a look inside and see what it looks like from in there so we’re just going to go up this ladder over here [Music] so here we are and from inside here you can really see the elegant shape of the boat as per her design and it’s so nice after all this hard work to just see that shape starting to come back so all the stern frames are in it’s been a really successful three weeks I couldn’t be happier with how it’s gone and with how all the people have been it’s been such a fantastic group a fantastic team of really hard-working individuals and once we did our training we were producing and installing one pair of frames per day which i think is phenomenal really so big thanks again to everyone who came here everyone who made this possible there when he supported the project huge thanks to Kurt who really masterminded this whole period and who unfortunately had to head home now pretty soon everyone’s going to be leaving but before that we’re gonna have to celebrate so it’s time for a party in the workshop [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Applause] we have a winner good job guys [Laughter] [Music] [Music] so I really enjoyed being up here I did learn a lot the the team was great everybody seemed to get along really well there weren’t really any personality conflicts and that so that made it really enjoyable and I think when when you enjoy doing something that the time seems to go by very quickly because it’s three weeks that seems just flown by yeah well I’m certainly extremely grateful for your time and hard work and problem-solving and yeah you’re most welcome exciting great lovely okay yeah so glad yeah well thank you thank you all right yeah that’s it again yeah I hope to be here to help with the forward frames excellent celebrating it [Laughter] [Laughter] it’s a bit overboard I think well cheers to say all the other guys who helped us out and he left and cheers to Kurt who helped organize this whole thing and had to head on home and and cheers to Diego cats dog may rest in peace and cheers to all you guys that wins yes [Music] so as a celebration of all the progress we made we took this sailing dinging out yesterday and got a few of my friends in the area to bring out their little boats actually quite an interesting story I don’t really know the class or the history of the boat except what I was taught by her previous owner I have no way of verifying if it’s true or not but apparently she was built as a sort of material prototype for the Spruce Goose which was a largest airplane ever built which was build of timber during the Second World War in California and the story is that when they were developing what was quite a modern technology of lamination at the time they built a few small boats to test how well it works and apparently this is one of them and I’d like to thank very much previous owner who bought this boat round here some time ago yeah I didn’t what sir Eddie thank you obviously so much for coming in lending your skill and your time and your hard work and being part of the project has been really epic and it’s been just wonderful to have all your company thank you thanks yeah no problem thank you yeah yeah I had huge amounts of fun so thank you yeah I did I loved it and that more than I thought I would have those go said it’s good great thanks guys next time man my wise jqx you’re lucky I like this guy’s if I put this didn’t move us enough information then it probably won’t be chief in G yeah that’s right yeah oh I wasn’t recording [Music] I got to the end of our work period and it was a great success and largely thanks to you guys thank you so much for being part of it we enjoyed every minute of it up here there was a long hours sometimes but I’ve never been around so many skilled people that were such gentlemen everybody was so kind and caring and even being in the kitchen all day long it teaches you that no job is no menial job or anything you think it’s menial goes unnoticed absolutely and it’s just as important so yeah there’s no such thing as I mean you look governor you know thanks so much thank you really appreciate everything so everyone has gone now and it’s just Anna and Robert still here yeah yeah basically we’ve just been doing odd jobs done much real work on the boat just a lot of tidying up and sort of getting things back in order off the frame raising I had to make a chicken coop for the new young chickens we’ve got I’ve also been preparing to go back to the UK okay I’m gonna head back for a few weeks to see family and stuff of course my landlords will still be here so I’m sure we’ll be looked after and the dogs [Music] [Laughter] [Music] [Laughter] thanks Tom yeah I guess this is it thanks for we’re helping this it’s been awesome yeah yeah thanks for the opportunity and it’s amazing and thanks you guys for staying on a little bit longer and helped me until the boring jobs after after everyone else had left hope cbn’s this last few weeks has been really amazing felt like we’ve taken the project to another level and hopefully we’re gonna be improving sort of time scale as well everyone wants to know what that is I think you’ll find it in a previous video it’s the rolling two years so it’s still two years away from the launch day as it will be every time anyone asks which means of course eventually we’re going to be launching about two years ahead of schedule and I’m really excited for a little break it’s been a really busy few months and so we nice to try and relax a bit and see old friends and family I’m going to be doing a little bit of sailing when I’m back in Europe so I’m maybe gonna make a video about that depending on if you guys think that’ll be interesting or not anyway as always thanks a lot for watching and a massive thank you to everyone who’s donated or otherwise supported the Tallyho project it makes a huge difference and it means unable to take the time to make and edit these videos so I really appreciate it [Music] [Laughter] you

    Little Hardhats: “Big Boats & Busy Harbors” Video

    >>HOST: Many of the things we use, like a
    lot of your toys are made in far away places, and would be ruined if they were handled like
    the soft and the scrap metal. So, things that need to be handled more gently are packed into metal containers and loaded
    onto ships to make the trip across the ocean. When those containers arrive in the harbor they’re unloaded with these huge gantry cranes, put on trains and trucks to continue their
    journey. [ship horn] [huge cargo vessels moving through the oceans
