we are a forum about building model ships mostly from a box, however the art and traditions of ship building is alive and well all around the world. The Tally Ho project shows how ship building is done from harvesting and cutting the timbers to the fine finish and joinery.

There was a topic started not to long ago about the same old stuff, the same old kit subjects and a need for something more, well here is something more Leo's passion for boat building is on a whole different level. He is indeed a one man army. I personally got hooked on the project and watched each and every video.

so sit back and enjoy the series

hello John
yes you are right the TALLY HO was to be a restoration but ended up as a total rebuild. i do not think there is anything of the original in the new TALLY HO

The transom timbers, some re-used knees and the ballast keel are the only parts from the original Tally Ho that I know of.

Hi Dave, I wanted to thank you for this. Witnessing every step of the rebuilding was enlightening. In addition to Leo's great commitment and the support he has, both technical and manual, seeing the way the work is done adds great knowledge to my experience as a naval model maker and to my pleasure in working with wood.
THANK YOU

i get the same out of the series to watch how a ship is actually built or in this case restored. It gives you an appreciation a ship carpenter is a skilled artisan
