“Oh, and there’s also this other system of measurement that uses metric division of inches”
I haven’t watched it yet, but in my apprenticeship they referred to decimal inches and it was simply a case of referring to the fraction at the end as a decimal ‘percentage’ of 1
1 and 1/4 would be 1.25Posted 2 years ago
1 and 1/2 inches is 1.5
1 and 3/4 would be 1.75
The 8ths and 16ths is where it gets a bit harder
1 and 3/8ths of an inch would be 1.375
1 and 9/16ths of an inch would be 1.5635
they referred to decimal inches
If ever it were needed, tacit agreement that the metric system makes much more sense, right there…Posted 2 years agoPosted 1 year ago

Go Pete! – Loved how articulate he was when talking about something that’s a bit more than the usual “Hey Pete! Watcha doin’ ?” type comments. Seriously skilled bloke.
I’m curious to know what the significance (if any) of his finger tattoos is – ‘STUMPED!’ ??Posted 1 year agoPosted 1 year ago
Note to self: go to episode one of this, and watch it all the way through!Posted 1 year ago
The best episode ever was milling live oak for the frames in Georgia. The miller’s accent was something else.Posted 1 year ago

What happened to the other videographer he was getting to help? Did that not work out?Posted 1 year ago
No he left.
I want to know what happened to the chap early on who helped set all the procedures up and made some of the benchesPosted 1 year ago
Hey Pete, what are you doing?
Well that’s quite an episode! I guess we now know what the tattoos are all aboutPosted 1 year ago

Leo’s Instagram said he’d been ill (not covid) so didn’t manage to get an episode out. Get well soon Leo (I’m sure he reads this thread)Posted 1 year ago

Certainly was, but I thought the earlier ones of him cutting the keel were the most interesting.
Mount chainsaw to home made jig. Sit on timber and pull running chainsaw towards you. Honestly I was waiting for him to lose a leg watching that scary technique in action.Posted 1 year ago

oh dear NIMBY ahoyPosted 1 year ago
What an arse! Poor Leo.
I’m glad I don’t have neighbours like that though.
On the plus side he’s going to get a lot of press coverage and his followers are going to increase.
Lets hope one of his followers is a lawyer who helps him out.
It must be sad when that’s all you have in your life and you’ve nothing better to do with your time.
Good luck Leo (with a capital L)Posted 1 year ago

Mary Ellen Winborn, the elected director of Clallam County’s Department of Community Development, said Goolden can raise funds for the Tally Ho.
“That’s the part that was put in the letter (to Goolden) that I did not approve,” Winborn said in a Monday interview.
Sounds strange – What does she mean by that?Posted 1 year ago
Sounds like some politics and playing power.
IMO it’s sounding like how best move is to move, to somewhere that wants the project and has all the permissions.Posted 1 year ago
He’s got more funding and support, take it to a shed/marina/shipyard that can home the project.
Otherwise he’s going to spend as much effort fighting the county and neighbours.
I get the impression that he’s reluctant to move the boat in its current state – he’s got it all set up true where it is, and once the planking and decking is finished she should hold her shape, but until then, I don’t know how stable she is – might settle differently if moved.
(Plus he’d lose that awesome workshop!)
Sounds like he needs to apply for the permit at the last minute and drag out proceedings, but keep working in the meantime in the hope that she’s in a state to move before they close him down. I’m sure he could do without the hassle!Posted 1 year ago
