14. Part 2; Cutting and Fitting the Keel Scarph

THIS episode, I cut and fit the big hook scarph in the Purpleheart for Tally Ho’s Keel timber. It’s a very dense hard wood, so it takes me some time, and lots of tool sharpening, to get the faces nice and clear, fitting well. Moving these timbers around is a real challenge because of their weight (the larger one is about 1.5 tons), but is possible with lots of levers, jacks and rollers, and is just the kind of work I enjoy.

  1. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday.
    It’s always useful to read through articles from other authors and
    use something from their websites.

  20. Hi Leo

    I am well impressed, just spent a couple of hours reading your blogs / watching your YouTube videos.

    Great content – very educational .

    Good luck with Tally Ho.

    Looking forward to seeing more posts!

  21. Leo Goolden you are one impressive dude. I was impressed with your restoration of this boat but then I saw a video of you working as a bosun on ADIX at the Classic Boat Race in the Caribbean. It’s impressive that you are a highly skilled boat builder/restoration specialist but to also be the bosun and managing the crew of a 212 foot wooden cruising boat, well the word impressive doesn’t do you justice. How in the world did you acquire these two skill sets at such an early age in your life. Good luck to you in all of your endeavours.
