Tally Ho – Ep. 72 – Bilge Stringers and Oak problems

Leo Sampson is back with Episode 72. A man on a mission to rebuild a 110-year old English sailing yacht called Tally Ho. Designed by Albert Strange in 1909 (and launched in 1910), she is a well-known and important historic vessel – but after many adventures she was left in a remote port in Oregon to rot for decades, despite some valiant attempts to rescue her. Bought by Leo he has embarked on a massive venture to rebuild her from the keel up.

He also manages to film and narrate the day-to-day work and has put together an incredibly successful Youtube Channel where you can follow his progress and really get a fantastic insight to the work involved in restoring/rebuilding a classic yacht.

This episode is titled Bilge Stringers/Oak Problems
