Dinghies, day sailers, world cruisers. Many small sailboats make ideal rowboats or low-speed power boats.

I've been following Leo from the beginning. Very interesting. He craftmanship and level of detail is awe inspiring. Wish I had time to go see Tally-ho in person. I'd also like to go see SV Seeker and Acorn to Arabella.

I've been following him as well along with two guys in Massachusetts (Acorn to Arabella). Two different approaches and two very dedicated projects.

Yes, I've been very attached to all the sailing videos on you tube for several years. its what has ultimately brought my boating interest back around. if I may, id like to suggest some other boating related you tube channels,Such as; Delos, SV Tapatya,RAN Sailing, Matiki, Sail Life, and Travels with Geordie. to name a few. but I'm warning you, these can be very addicting. I don't watch regular television channels anymore, (HA-HA). And most of these are sailboat building or refining channels.

here another good one,

this guy sailed a 23 footer, solo, to Hawaii, then island hopped all the islands.
I think it is cool because he didnt just show the good fun stuff with the sun shining, he showed the squalls, the getting wet, the cooking on a rocking boat, he showed the nitty gritty that the others don't show.

Ken,

If you haven't already, you need to go watch the story on the Western Flyer. The setting is the book, Sea of Cortez, and the Western Flyer was the vessel that the book was written on. Great history and an awesome restoration.

And then you can follow along on the restoration. She's a beautiful ole girl.
