20. Dropping the Keel Timber / Bolting the Scarph

This episode, I drive the 3000 miles back to Tally Ho from South Georgia, where Steve Cross has been milling Live Oak for me. I bed and bolt the 6’ Scarph in the new keel timber together, and the Live Oak arrives by flatbed. Then we create a framework inside to boat to spread the load of the props while I remove the Keel Timber from underneath it, all the while hoping that nothing breaks and that the boat doesn’t deform at all in shape.

  1. Hiya Simon , ime Steve a time served joiner.(retired sort of) , following your projects with interest ,
    have you done a video fitting new scarf jointed keel ?

  2. Sarah Kelly says she wants gun control because she lost a family member to gun violence. Okay, with that in mind, I think we should have car control, as when I was 16 I lost a 16 year old cousin to a car crash. I have lost four students to car crashes. I loved driving my car until thenbut alas I will never use it again. Then we should have boating control and lake control-no swimming or boating in any lakes because I had two friends drown in boating accidents. Everyone should turn in their boats and throw out their swimsuit just as I have doneThe list goes on and on (I do hope you realize the sarcasm here)
