    He certainly needs to keep an eye on safety with all those odd bods helping out!

    Those slabs of white oak perched on concrete blocks as he plunges a chain saw into them!! Have to say though I’m a big fan of the work he’s doing.

    If it was the chainsaw, then a finger tip is lucky escape!

    I reckon he caught it in a grinding wheel sharpening a tool. Its an abrasion, wore it away.

    Eitherway. I reckon it smarts and I bet his mother is on a plane to tell him off!

    Is this project some type of charity, eg like Trinity in Brixham,or the Excelsior Trust, etc? Or is it a professional boatbuilder's commercial venture? Or even a professional restoring an old boat for his own use?

    A professional, rebuilding the boat for his own use, and putting his own money in with a little help from his friends. Like many, I’m happy to chip in the price of a couple of pints a month.

    “Tally Ho” was discovered some years ago as a worn out motor fishing boat in a small harbour in Oregon. An odd fate for a Fastnet winner! She had been put ashore and was due to be scrapped. A local man made a start on repairs but he died. The Harbour Master was as tolerant as he could be but he made it clear that she would have to go. The Albert Strange Associaton tried everything including trying to get her back to the UK, but in the meantime covered her over and paid her storage fees.

    Leo took the boat on - for £1, from the Albert Strange Association - and he is doing a fantastic job of rebuilding her. Nobody else was going to do that, and he is doing it wonderfully well.

    There is of course a precedent set by one J Slocum...
