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.

Also like driving into a service station with a Rolls Royce and filling the tank with the "low price" fuel!! The Tally Ho, Stem to Stern, represents a labor of love --- and--- NOTHING BUT THE BEST, with no compromises.

Leo continually demonstrates the joy possible by engaging with reality in a rational manner. Whether the task is minor or major, Leo shows his engagement. There is no competition, no winner/losers, just action. His skill does not demean those w/o skill. He is entirely genuine.

@@wisedupearly3998 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

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.

I built a PT 11 and absolutely love it. Its a fantastic dinghy and an absolute joy to sail or row. I had it for about 6 years and the design effort Russel has made to make the dinghy robust has really paid off. Congrats Leo. You have a truly fantastic dinghy for Tally Ho.
I am blown away by the PT11. The skill and intelligence that has gone into the design and engineering of that is quite simply astonishing. I agree when Leo said that Russell was being very modest about it as it's utterly brilliant. As for the price - considering what you're getting, it's really not that bad. It'll fit pretty much anywhere.

Wind and Oar in Portland just built a traditional, all wood , tender at our Sauvie Island School, sharing expertise from myself and another old salt from Schooner Creek, to younger, boat-builders racing Thistles and 29ers off the coast of Italy. With Huge Respect LEO, NO LIFE-JACKET is Irresponsible. You could not survive the hypothermia of those waters, that far out.

It blows my mind. To be on youtube and find a really skilled and knowledgeable sailor & boatwright--who is also quite young. Who also is an excellent speaker, and covers the topic so well. And as a bonus, how remarkable in this time of petroleum pastimes and plastic forward facing human powered watercraft, to find someone (young!) who actually prefers rowing--and who even knows how to row--even how to feather! My God! It gives me hope for a hopeless world! (Disclosure: I have designed a number of rowing boats over the years. Maybe I'll do more, now that I know that perhaps there will be more young people who have the interest).
I have a PT11. It is all the video portrays and more. It rows faster than walking pace and goes upwind like rocket. it is the best!

Ive been to Port Townsend before, we went to a camping site nearby checking out the historical bunkers at Fort Warden. I'm so disappointed that i didn't know about the boat culture back then when I went.
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.

Good point about an inflatable dingy as a tender! Such a boat is much more useful in times of need than something as cumbersome as the PT 11. The PT 11 looks cool, though.

Congratulations on finding the ideal dinghy! When I watched it in the water, it seemed to be as practical as it was stylish and nicely matched how I envision Tally Ho when she is complete. Always a pleasure, Leo. thanks for sharing.

That smile when you were out pacing the two paddlers in the canoe tops off the whole episode.

Really didn't think this episode would be as interesting but Leo did it again. Something as mundane as a dinghy turns out to be a fascinating example of design and engineering. Everything gets thought out on this project. No detail left unconsidered.

I often wondered what happened to Russel. We used to live on Ruxton Is in BC and we'd see him now and then in his proa. It was very fast. He hasn't changed, a gentle kind soul of which there are many in the PNW. Here in Australia you have to go to Tasmania to find the same vibe. Must be the colder weather. One thing that we have like nowhere else is lot's of parrots though. I'm happy about that.
