Rebuilding a historic sailing yacht – Assembling Frames with Treenails. Support; Become a Patron;
This episode, I work with some volunteers to cut out more futtocks, and assemble the first pair of Frames using Southern Live Oak - to replace the old English Oak frames that Tally Ho was built with. To fasten the futtocks we use Black Locust Treenails (Trunnels/Trennels), which are traditional wedged pegs, used for centuries in ship-building and timber-framing.
We also get some more of the copper fastenings removed, build some adjustable trestles, and establish the centerline of the boat. Finally, Cecca and I take an overdue little holiday to the furthest reaches of the Olympic Peninsula.
