Amazing. Mostly for his courage to take on a project like that. THAT makes me wish I was young again but way more fearless that the current time around.
Wow. What an amazing bloke, and great project, along the lines of Ginger-Dot, except that he appears to be doing most, if not all the work himself. Obviously has a mega can-do attitude, and I wish him ever success getting her finished and her keel wet again. Thanks D for sharing the link.
…thought you might like it.. the guy is hugely talented, hard working, has a beautiful boat to fix, and never wears a bikini.. what’s not to like.. :o)
Just woken up to who he is. He was reviewed in Classic Boat about rebuilding his Folkboat and crossing the Pond, with his Swedish girlfriend as crew, then taking part in the Antigua races, etc., etc. He obviously has taken on a heck of a rebuild, but for me besides that, he has completely reorganised the work shop, storage, and made a very nice home on the mezzanine. All to a brilliantly high standard. A lot of us can learn a thing or two from that. Brill. P.S. love the parrot.
Impressive guy and project….it’s going to take a month of Sunday’s however……..
I enjoy these guys who spent some time fixing , useing, selling old boats, then decided to build a new one on a piece of land up a mountain!https://youtu.be/THZwt-SFMxASalt and Tar are building new which I think brave. Perhaps less polished video?.If you find the one of removing all the temporary shed covers……they got 4′ of snow all winter……..I wonder how long Simpson cover will last.Cheers Warren.
Just viewed the latest, 15 Oct. I am so impressed by his thoughtful and skilled approach to what is after all a massive project. Latest problem to overcome is dealing with the local building inspector, which one hopes will be an OK outcome. Thank you Steve, and Dylan, for bringing this project to my attention. Great stuff.
Oh dear, this kind of viewing is so compulsive. No wonder I never get anything done. However, it does help to be able to see Leo, and also Nick Gates, set about working on old boats, and how they tackle problems, and the end result – Leo has some way to go yet! I particularly love the way he tackles a problem and unlike others tackles it in a logical and neat way. Hope the building Inspector gives him the green light to keep the “shed” up over Tally Ho. Will be interesting to see how he fairs through the winter. BTW, where has the parrot gone?
