    Causes for heavy steering wheel?

    Aw, c'mon, the "surveyor" did turn the wheel all the way in both directions and it was hard to do, too! (Here endeth the sarcasm.)

    A big project!

    Some of you with legal backgrounds can correct me here but from the Peninsula Daily News article Mary Ellen Winborn states that Leo can raise money and that her concerns are with the noise and dust. ("We don’t need boats being built all over the county in residential neighborhoods. It doesn’t belong in a rural residential neighborhood...It belongs in a boat marina.") So, if the issue is not the "commercial" aspect and Leo abides by whatever noise ordinances etc. are in place for that location has Ms. Wound-too-tight not undermined her own arguments against the project? Tally Ho belongs in a marina when it is completed and Ms. WTT's concern that boats will start being built all over the county is spurious at best. But way to go on the PR for your county. I think I will start a go fund me campaign to finance the purchase of a property adjacent to Ms. WTT and then donate it to the Hell's Angels or some similar friendly group...
  3. Okay, now I have to watch this and Leo/Tally Ho. What a contrast watching those Brazilian shipwrights "get 'er done" compared to Leo's "jewelers" rebuild of TH.

    How much would you spend?

    Much good advice here. I will only add that you should not buy a project like this because you want the boat. You get involved with something like this because you want the project, because you are excited about doing all the work. If you want the boat rather than the project go find something already sailing that fits your needs/desires and pay what it costs to buy that. You will save money and still have plenty of projects to do anyway. You will just get to do some sailing, too.

    A big project!

    That would be ideal, Zonk, but does Leo have the space around TH? Or knowing Leo, he'll just knock out a larger tent structure over a weekend or two...Still enjoying this project.
  8. "Ajit Pai" HAHAHAHAHAHA...! As if that corporate toady ever knew anything about anything. (Actually, he likely knows quite a great deal regarding fellating corporate c***k.)
  9. Aww, you think of this asylum as a community. That is so cute...

    What filler will hide thin gaps

    As See Level said, the sawdust thing is the way to go, especially if you can collect some from the same supply of wood used to make the hull for color match.

    sanding concave areas

    Much good advice above. I have found a dry sponge to be a useful, conforming sanding block in some situation. Usually works best for light sanding. If you need to form a shape surface etc. some of the other suggestions above will work better.
  12. No engines so make them manually portage the vessel. Should have interesting effects on both the vessel selection and competitor selection. I think a canoe with two crew (cyclists? triathletes?) rigged to tow behind a tandem bicycle might do the trick.

    Tally-Ho Hybrid Propulsion

    The way Leo's been building this thing I was half expecting no electricity and whale-oil lamps (jk).
  14. Tested? Hell, he'd probably be lost to us and enjoying direct communication with Lil' Murry.
  15. Well, he is up to 49 subscribers, so, cha-ching$$. (No, I did not watch the video. Just had to peek at the subscription count.)
