    Presumably there would be a not-inconsiderable weight increase due to water absorption by the caulking and timbers on a boat that size after a period in the water. I guess that’s one of the reasons for the removable internal ballast?

    What a difference between attempt 1 and 2.

    I kept thinking they were too close and that if anything went wrong they were going to get hot toes (except no feet Pete)

    Brilliant episode. It’s coming along now isn’t it.

    I think attempt two is what happens when you think attempt one is something you can do without professional help 😆

    Coming along indeed. But theres still the i9nternal fitting out, then the deck, helm position, and all the rigging to do. I’m guessing it will still be a work in progress this time next year.

    Plus the chap(Leo) is a complete perfectionist. Which adds to the planning to get everything spot on.

    Be nice to see it finally go in the water though.

    So I’m doing a second re-watch. Just got to #38, with the finger incident.

    YouTube served up a stihl chainsaw ad; relevant, but a but close to home! (Though I still think it must have been the bandsaw.)

    The one thing I kept thinking was I’d want some eye protection. Good to see it go so well, it’s been a fantastic thing to follow. I think he gets the balance of showing us stuff and explaining things spot on and the supporting cast are great.

    I love the use of power tools on lead…cutting the tenon 😁

    Just getting into this, about a quarter of the way through. Bloody excellent. Some of the chainsaw use freaks me out though, pretty lax with health and safety with the power tools.

    I understand the reasons for moving, even without the legal hassles it made sense but its lost some of it’s “charm” (and Pancho). I’m also a bit uneasy with paid and unpaid thing going on :/

    Just watching the latest, in quiet awe at the level of craftsmanship as usual.

    I’m also a bit uneasy with paid and unpaid thing going on :/

    Would you mind explaining this? It’s an interesting mix of people; pros and volunteers/apprentices is my take on it.

    Sometimes these are just a nice 30mins escape from all the rest of the shit going on.  Kind of liking Rowan’s understated ability to just keep getting stuff done.  Loving some of the tools he has now as well.

    I’ve come to this late – looks like a fab project, but I’m never going to be able to catch up with all 125 episodes!
    Any especially good ones you’d recommend?
    I already watched ep100 which was a good recap.

    Just start at episode 1 and take your time – should be on youtube for years.

    It is worth starting from the beginning, some of the episodes are not as long.

    If you really don’t want to watch all of it, I would recommend seeking out his first trip back to the UK where he meets the owners/builders of the Blue River Table

    as there will probably be references to that in his forthcoming episode about his recent trip back

    What a fascinating little insight into the work of the marine architect 🙂

    Finally!
    I’m up to date on the videos and can read this thread! 😊

    I absolutely love what Leo is doing. There is something so soulful in it that I need to get more of in what I do.

    It’s such an enormously positive project in every way.

    Agreed. Really much more than just a boat project.
    And it’s looking stunningy already…

    It does.
    The dedication he has to doing absolutely everything the right way down to the smallest bolt or plank is amazing.

    The deck is beautiful. Work of art.

    I’ve done some sailing on one of those, though not as long. I think including bowsprit is was about 50′(that one is 73′. So maybe 40-42, i forget. Same age, 1880 ketch cutter. Lovely boat.

    We even had a yard set up for downwind sailing. We looked quite the pirate vessel 😆

    One thing it differs from to regular sailing yachts is the ropes. on modern its thin lines and they’re easy to handle, on these old boats its bloody thick hemp types and its murder on the hands.

    The attention to detail is amazing.
    Absolutely beautiful work.

    Everything fits so well.

    Seeing that the new boy is….ahem, a little more mature then the others I wonder how he copes physically. Going on and off a boat all day and getting yourself into small spaces is so hard on the body. I can barely walk after a day on site doing similar 😂

    Love seeing that they use a similar method for templating the deck boards as I’ve been using recently.

    It was 107 years old when he started 😆
