    Machining a neutral rake at the cutting edge, like for brass will keep the bit from binding and grabbing.

    At the end of the video, Leo mentions that coming up is the installation of the 'bow steel'.
    What is that?
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    I think he said "ballast keel."

    That is one beautifully and massively built vessel.
    Does anyone know the length-on-deck of Tally-Ho?
    I don't believe Leo has ever mentioned it.

    Google is our friend.
    Tally Ho is a gaff-rigged cutter yacht designed by the artist and yacht designer Albert Strange.[1][3] The 48-foot (15 m) yacht was built at Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex in England and has previously carried the names Betty, Alciope, and Escape. In 2017, the Albert Strange Association, then owners of the boat, sold it to an English boatbuilder to be completely refit.

    Drilling those nut pockets in the ballast from below looks like total joy. I thought the keel bolts would go through the floors, but apparently not. That crew that Leo assembled is top drawer. The launch will draw many thousands.

    I was thinking that he might go through the floors also but with the diameter of the bolts, that would probably weaken the floors quite a bit.

    ....and each one of those keel bolts is strong enough to support the entire chunk of lead

    I didn't expect the keel bolts to be so hurky. Leo has shown an amazing ability to put together a boat that is incredibly stout, but not overbuilt. It's a rare talent.

    Leo rebuilt that Folkboat also. Here is the right link I think.

    Anyone know how old Leo is?
    Incredible talent in both boatbuilding and sailing accomplishments at a relatively young age.

    It seems to me that his greatest skill/knack is finding people with the skills/resources that he needs. Advice from a Naval Architect, a great team of shipwrights, his friends at Squim and so on.

    I think he was 27 when he launched into Tally Ho, so he's in his early 30s.

    Lots of planing and sawing, not much in the way of explanaton

    Leo has gone home for a couple of weeks. Let's hope immigration lets him back in, when he returns.

    So he's off to England to visit family and friends. No mention of Becca.
    So what happened to Becca?
    Inquiring minds want to know.
    Even if it's none of our dang business.

    It was an interesting episode. Looks like the numbers came out to Leo's liking.

    I'm certain he'll use sitka for the spars.

    The right wood for the job, for sure. And if the hull lacks the tenderness or stiffness he desires, the internal ballast can be adjusted. There will be a lot of fine tuning once the boat is on the water, but adjusting the internal ballast is a lot easier than changing out the spars.

    You're right! They already have the wood on hand.

    One of the great things about this forum is that we don't all have to accumulate the same scar tissue.
