    I do not think Tally Ho will employ a lotta epoxy .

    He gives a very very good example of how to scarf old frames I was trying to explain in words, but a video just makes it so much easier to understand

    I've watched all his videos. When I saw him fit that keel scarf by himself any tiny doubt I had that he could do this job vanished like the gap between those two very large timbers.

    I enjoyed that big time. I learn something every video. Pilot Cutters are seriously cool.

    really enjoyed that video. I love Luke Powell's boats. I got his book and can't help but drool over those Pilot Cutters. Would be awesome to sail one of his boats. I think it'd be cool to work for him to learn the techniques along the way.

    I'm really interested in how he was finding/marking the bevels between the planks and frames. Nice seeing the planking go in. Can't be afraid to pull out a big hammer. Lots of good info in that video.

    put a bevel gauge on the back face of the pattern, the other part of the bevel gauge goes against the hull plank

    In video 18 he takes a little tour of a new Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter. There's a scene where they show the table in the main cabin. It is quite interesting in it's construction. The table leaf has fiddles on the bottom and folds up and over the main part of the table. The fiddles are used to support the leaf in the open position as well. Quite ingenious. Anybody have any images of something similar or maybe a snap shot of that one?

    Nautor Swan made tables like that, only with two leaves, the one leaf was plain and the othe leaf had big fiddles undeneath. You could either have a big flat water table o a small rough water table.

    Brilliant stuff. Steve Cross used to be a forum member, but his homespun communication methods dd not sit well with the usual suspects.

    That’s quite a load of live oak he bought. Can’t wait to see him put it to use.

    A pity he’s not still involved, he seems like a genuine gem of a bloke.

    Oh my!

    The sheer scale of it all, on his own!

    It would be great to know the number of hours it took to do the jacking, cutting of bolts, and lowering of the keel. It's impossible to get a feel for it with an edited video.

    Looks like he took the Georgia ship saw idea modified it for a chainsaw!
    He has a decent size bandsaw on the shop, but I don’t think it’s up to cutting out the live oak futtocks.
