Well, what IS Pete doing?!
In the last video we got to know part of the crew a little better, and now it’s time to learn a bit more about Pete Stein’s story. We start the New Year by taking his boat out for a sail with the whole crew, before getting back into planking Tally Ho. In between cutting out and hanging planks, Pete shows us his own workshop and tells us a bit about his train-riding days, including a pretty wild accident that changed his life for ever.
In other news, drills are broken, rivets are peened, Pancho enjoys the staircase, and Rosie receives a large box of Shipwright’s tools from a local legend.

    Did a complete refit on my 78’ prairie cutter about 50 ft from That building. Got a lot of good advise from those guys at the coop , especially the best place in town for sandwiches!! Have sailed over 60 k nautical miles on my boat since. Great to hear your story. I’ve done my share of train hopping too ! Great fun getting chased by the yard bulls and having to swim a river in January too !! Excellent video! Thanks Pete, for pushing the envelope...

    Prosthetics have a history of pretty awesome carpentry as well. My great grandpa used to bore custom sockets out of willow wood logs, since it was the softest touch and most pliable core wood available. My family still has his boring tools, along with a lot of really neat machining and leatherwork devices.

    A friend of mine lost his leg just below the knee in a motorcycle accident. About 10 years after it happened we where all down at bike week in SC and decided to go swimming in the ocean. He took is prosthetic leg off and jumped in. As we where getting out of the water a group of kids where on the beach so he grabbed his leg and started yelling shark shark shark. The kids flipped out, the state police showed up along with the ambulance. It took us over 2 hours of talking to them to convince them not to lock him up.

    Bravo Léo pour ce magnifique projet de reconstruction. Bien plus que ce chantier naval c'est surtout une véritable aventure humaine, au regard du parcours de vie de Pete votre bras droit, qui sous son air rustique se cache un garçon sensible et intelligent. C'est d'ailleurs incroyable quand on réfléchit bien, Tally Ho a subi la dureté de la mer et Pete la dureté de la vie mais au bout du compte les deux finiront par se relancer. N'est ce pas ça la vie !

    I capsized my kayak in Port Townsend , the water is very cold. Lose the snot ring Pete. I have a couple of young apprentice shipwrights mates here in Tasmania . They have also been able to accrue a lot of old shipwright tools from folk who appreciate the fact that their old tools will live on in the hands of young boat builders. This was a great video , getting to know the crew a bit better and hearing Pete's story gives the show a more personal feel.
