Wasn't it mentioned that Pete was going to rent his own space and do his own thing in PT? He's probably gotten work that enables him to be his own boss, and is busy doing it.Seems like the type of guy who would eventually snap at being treated like a zoo exhibit by millions of internet morons.

I hope you guys are right. I guess I was just hoping for an official send-off video to his new exciting project and maybe even talk about it the future. Instead, in one video Leo says, "Pete has moved on to new projects." And that's the end of it. That girl that was rebuilding motorcycles on the side got more airtime when she left the channel.+1 My guess is with the exposure he got through the videos, and the demonstrable range and quality of his work, he's probably in demand and can set own his fees at something more than he was getting paid as an employee of the project....
That makes me happy to hear.I don't think there's any bad blood, quite the opposite. Pete's shop is adjacent to the building Tally Ho is in and he was there with an open door when the Tally Ho open house was going on at the PT Wooden Boat Festival in September.
Some people just don't want a big fuss made and Pete strikes me as that kinda guy.
Leo used the phrase "by mutual agreement" to describe Pete's departure.I feel like they had a falling out or something. I am truly curious. His exit was quick and without any fanfare.
I've sampled this great series on Youtube, but not watched every episode. Does anywhere Leo mention if an original stick of wood from the original Tally Ho is used on the new vessel? Something must have been usable, even if only for a suitable nautical toothpick holder.
Does he mention if he saved any of the old wood? The Ship of Theseus Society is looking for a new project.
I think a fair bit of teak from the original is being used. With the price of teak I can understand. Ignoring the labour cost, which we shouldn't, the material cost for this boat is staggering.Most of the transom was built from reclaimed timber plus other bits and pieces. I think he hoped to get the bulwarks out of old timber but I may have made that up.
