Thread: Tally Ho

    Another "watched them all" fan. What impresses me most if the quality of workmanship. Leo went through a lot of people before settling with the crew he now has and it was worth it.

    I am a big fan of Leo and Tally Ho. Desinged by Albert Strange in 1909

    Yesterday’s (4/20) installment reveals they will get the boat in the water for next weekend’s video drop. With the delay between recording and posting it’s likely already been launched. It’s been a long time coming.

    Interesting subject. I have skimmed over some of those videos and it's amazing what he's doing. Brought back memories. I sailed in the Pacific Northwest for years and have spent much time in Pt. Townsend. Several years ago I met up with friends and their boat at Neah Bay (NW tip of the continental US) to ride along for the last leg home after a part-way-around-the-world journey. This is a picture of what was hanging in the slings in the marina at Pt. Townsend when we got there. If you want nautical craftsmanship, Pt. Townsend is a good place to look for it.

    And..... It's in the water. There's a few stealth photos out there.

    Remarkable! I tried to watch my old VHS version of The Last Sailors the other day and decided I need to get a digital copy. Leo & Tally Ho would fit in nicely along side many of the boats and sailors in that film.

    Rob, I sent the kids a cold snip of your image. I think my Kred went up a tiny bit. They are big fans

    I suspect it was in the water before Leo's last video.

    I just started "The Wager" by David Grann. I am enjoying it. Life and death on the high seas! (as experenced from a warm, dry, comfortable chair).

    I just watched the launching of Tally Ho. Another excellent video and an uplifting story. I suspect the next chapters will be equally enjoyable.

    There is some good "High Tech" content in this weeks episode, and some good old fashioned messing about in boats.

    Looks great, but does it look to anyone else that it has lee helm? I would put some effort into getting it balanced out in that light wind before taking it out when it's blowing. Might need to play with mast rake a bit. Maybe it's just the camera angle, but the helm looks uncomfortable to me.

    Not to me although I didn't see any clear shots of how it balanced. Around 16 minutes he seems to be pulling slightly on the tiller just like he should be with a slight heel and a slight windward helm. A little later it briefly looks like he might be pushing a bit on the tiller but it's not clear where the center is.

    But you gave me an excuse to spend a few more minutes watching them sail and it was a pleasure. I spent a lot of time sailing in those waters although everything I sailed had fiberglass hulls and aluminum masts. I rarely if ever saw anything like the Tally Ho out sailing.

    Not to me. Leo lets go of the tiller several times and it stays put. He does say that she feels balanced... and that she is a heavy boat.

    Here is a working link for the not working one in post 21 regarding The Last Sailors.

    This weeks installment has me wanting to make a pair of heaving mallets on the lathe. I think I remember a SMC thread about "What to make on the lathe". Heaving mallets would be a good candidate. The "what to make" discussion may have been in the Grizzly Green Monster Group.

    Serious force multiplication there. The simple solution is usually the best.
