    I would like to give a big thanks to Leo and his crew for their help. On May 15th of this month i was able to go see Tally Ho in person. I had emailed Leo and told him i was in hospice homecare. Leo told me to stop by if i could. My son took me and i couldn't believe the workmanship done on this boat. I won't be here for the finish, but people try to see this boat if you can after it's in the water. Leo and everyone from start to finish should be proud of themselves for this accomplishment.

It'd, obviously, also be cool to see their parrot again. Stay safe out there.

    I can’t imagine there’s a manufacturer of supplies for traditional boat building out there that doesn’t know about the Tally Ho at this point. Most businesses in niche markets such as this have an interest in the craft and beauty that their products facilitate and I’d imagine many tune in weekly. Thanks to TDS for supplying the caulking and getting this beautiful vessel one step closer to wet feet. I’m sure Leo’s story has inspired hundreds to one day build their own dream and they’ll remember it when the time comes to cork their own decks. Bravo!

    🙏👏🛥 Hats off to Leo and his crew for their incredible support and hospitality! 🌟 On my recent visit to see Tally Ho, I was deeply moved by the craftsmanship and dedication put into this magnificent boat. Despite my health circumstances, Leo warmly welcomed me and my son. The attention to detail in the rig, with its blocks and sheaves, is truly impressive. Though I may not witness the final result, I urge everyone to experience the beauty of Tally Ho once it hits the water. Leo and the entire team should take great pride in their remarkable achievement.

    One fascinating aspect of this project is the interplay between traditional design and building techniques vs modern materials and methods. You have traditional wooden blocks with Delrin sheaves. You have traditional cotton caulking sealed in with modern TDS sealant. You have a very traditional sailing yacht with a modern engine and cutting edge electrical systems.

    As an aside, the worlds first production line recorded was designed by Isambard Brunels father Marc, this marine block manufacturing facility was producing over 100,000 blocks per year starting in 1802 for Royal Navy ships, the workshops are still evident in the Portsmouth Naval Dockyard and last I heard were in the process of being restored.

      @dan carterit’s curious how talent can sniff out talent. Brunel had the idea, the vision. Maudslay could translate that into reality. He too was showing off, there is nothing utilitarian about the construction, almost architectural decorative bits all over. Imagine modern automation being decorated with turned finials.

      Each British ship-of-the-line needed about 1000 blocks, so necessity was truly the father of invention. I've seen them with various markings, including the British Broad Arrow.
      Here in the U.S.A., kids are taught that the first modern factory and assembly-line, was the brainchild of Henry Ford but the Portsmouth Block Mill, predates that by more than 100 years.

    I've been watching since the beginning and it's amazing to see the finish getting closer. From the beginning all the volunteers up to the craftsman now all of them are the nicest people iv'e seen online. Like the fellow below (Guy bever) I've become paraplegic since 2018 and any dreams of sailing are lived vicariously through the build shows. I will probably make it to see the launch (online) and hope to see TallyHo at sea. God bless all the craftsman from the beginning to now.

      I've been enjoying the channel for a few months, have watched some very old episodes, but not nearly all (so this may have been covered at some point). I am curious what makes the boat still Tally-Ho? It seems that every bit has been replaced, it's really a new boat. Not meaning in any way to be critical or question the "authenticity", just wondering if there are distinctions made between "restoration, "rebuild", and "replicate".

    • Jonathan Lodge

      @Ricky Morse Apparently Leo has decided to stick with old-school navigation, and forego GPS on Tally Ho. So no need for any fancy satellites!

    Leo deserves credit for allowing his crew to share the videoing duty with him. We've watched Patrick's efforts for a quite a while--Nick being his foil most of the time--but this time Zeal got to step up and he acquitted himself well, too. What a crew!

    Those blocks look really beautiful and the craftsmanship that goes into them is impressive as well - good thing the artisan only charges 1,99$ per hour ;-) - no, seriously: craftsmanship has its price and I am the last person to deny that.

    Those hatches are works of art. The entire vessel is a thing of beauty. However, knowing the state this poor boat was in when Leo got it really makes this transformation nothing short of a miracle. What an incredible and seemingly impossible undertaking this effort has been. It is an amazing story and tribute to his vision, talents and dedication. After years of watching I am already starting to anticipate the day when the sails fill, the ocean slips by the rudder and Captain Leo is free.

    When I was young I imagined working on or sailing on a ship like Tally Ho. I huge dream on mine for many years. However, about mid life I started having major issues with my joints. I hope it never happens to any of you. So when I came upon Leo's buying and rebuilding of Tally Ho it gave me something to hang on to when going through another surgery and rehabilitation. I too am a woodworker not to the extent that Leo and his crew are but none the less the woodworking I watch with awe and anticipation. So again I would like to thank the crew for their contribution to each of the episodes especially the BBSea commercials very funny. Thank you for giving me something to look forward to each week. It has made dealing with this issue more bearable. I can not wait to see Tally Ho being launched and sailing once again.

    As an old woodworker, I'm envious of the guys who get to work with the wonderful woods and add their craftsmanship to the Tally Ho. I'm in awe of the quality of the materials and workmanship that have gone into this project. I can only imagine the $$ spent on the Tally Ho so far and can't imagine how Leo has raised all the funds.

    Id love to see more detail on the tying and knotting/stitching of the rigging.
    Really fascinating process, Bob seems super cool and seems to have a wealth of knowledge to share.
    Really, really looking forward to seeing more of the cordage work!
