Of all the aspects of this project, the one that seems not to get enough praise is Leo’s skill as a storyteller. It’s not just that he takes lovely videos of beautiful and interesting bits of a beautiful and interesting boat, it’s also that he weaves all of that into compelling story that would work even if it was all told in prose alone.

This has been a wonderful video and I’ve enjoyed every minute of your production. When I heard the name Russell Brown I was wondering if that was Jim’s son , and when he first came on all doubt was removed. He came by his skills in a way that only a few people have ever been fortunate enough to experience. His background is most impressive and that along with his humility is always refreshing to see in a true craftsman and seaman. Best of luck with your amazing project, it is truly a work of art.

@wisedupearly falling off sailboats can kill even good swimmerd because conditions can prevent recovery for a long time if not rendered impossible. Your comment tells me you are not someone I would sail with because you don't seem to understand the risks There is often a decent chance that the man overboard sustained injury getting tossed because it's not so easy to get thrown out of a contained cockpick without some trauma and even a bump on the head that wouldn't even knock you out could make treading water impossible in your clothes and. Many a former sailor have went in never to surface once because of it I highly recommend a boating safety course that includes offshore safety and survival as you definitely need it if you plan on cruising...but CanonCanon, we know your just a troll

I used to build folding boats in NZ,they were a similar size to your one and were offered with or without mast and sails,they folded down to be around the size of a surfboard,although a bit thicker. The guy that designed them took the idea from boats that Commandos used in WW2 called folboats, they could land in France,fold it up and either Bury it in sand or simply hide it in bushes so they could recover them after a mission and row out to meet a submarine. They were built to go through the subs hatch.

@Braindead To be perfectly honest, this is not a restoration project, it's building a whole new boat with the guidance of the original design plans and a rotted hulk to dissemble. AFAIK, there is only one original item, which is the melted down re-purposed lead for the keel. Not saying that in a bad way, just being honest. He already addressed this in another video. With the help of youtube, he has figured out a way to leverage the platform to make this build happen. Great reality show with "Hi, my name is Leo. I'm a boat builder and a sailor", 136 times thus far

Thanks for the report, Leo. The PT dingy is especially interesting to me, as I built a "stitch and glue" wineglass wherry from a Pygmy kit during the Covid sequestration, and finally got to display it at the Wooden Boat Festival this year. I had wondered whether a plywood/glass/epoxy tender would be compatible with the Tally Ho's style and mission. You've answered my questions, and more. Of course, my wherry, Planet X, has all sorts of laminating warts that Russel Brown was somehow able to avoid in his boats. His craftsmanship is amazing; right up there alongside the Tally Ho's detailing. It's obvious from your test "manhandling" that the PT dingy is really strong. And it's reinforced cleverly to resist damage and wear. One advantage over other construction types is that in the event of a serious crunch, the fiberglass next to the damage can be sanded clean, feathered, and rebuilt with more wood, cloth and resin, as strong as new.

You were so genuinely chuffed when the tender fit on deck. That's awesome! It's such a great tender

As always, I really enjoyed the segment. It was terrific to see the creativity in the dinghy design and your support of other boat builders.

What a great tender! Really contemporary looks with vertical stem and modern rig, superb design features, light and easy. Great choice, Leo. Very tempted myself!

I knew about the heeling angle having an effect on your steering, but I never thought about using it to steer without using the tiller

That PT11 looks by far the best nesting dinghy I’ve seen, really impressive. Thanks for this vid, Leo, it was a pleasure to watch. Really enjoyed the edit and soundtrack, a lot packed in but still a really chill vibe, some nice shots too. Cheers, R. 😎👍🍻
