For those of you that have not seen this YouTube series I thoroughly recommend you watch. A story of a Brit shipwright restoring a 110 year old yacht on the west coast of the USA. Awesome woodworking skills ....

It's my usual Sunday morning treat with a cup of coffee as Leo uploads the bi-weekly video on a Saturday evening our time.
I've not missed an episode yet...! Well worth a watch, even if you aren't into boats. 👍

Interesting video

How much did he end up replacing?

One if the few larger Albert strange designs.

Most were canoe yawls.

Laying in a new keel stem to stern on an existing boat ... Most people would have just given up and torched it! Interesting couple of episodes on lofting (old style) I think he could have done a quicker and probably more accurate job with some CAD software, but Leo is definitely a bit of a traditionalist

Started watching a couple of months ago, takes a while to catch up but well worth it. Went to see Pellow as just up the road but already in water.

One of the interesting "discoveries" for me was live oak. Never heard of this species. What a shame we can't seem to get hold of any here in the UK. Fantastic properties that would make it ideal for furniture work

it'll be interesting to see how his legal challenges pan out, I think what he's done so far is amazing, and arguably an improvement on the original boat, shame about the neighbour and council who want to end the project.

What are his legal challenges?

Someone wants him out?

Visa issues??
