A History Of Tally Ho At 47ft 6in LOA and 30 tons TM, Betty was the largest transom-sterned boat designed by Albert Strange. She was built for Charles Hellyer of Brixham, who had fishing interests in that port, as well as in Hull, where he owned one of the first steam trawler fleets, and was a member of the Humber Yawl Club.

The story of Tally Ho's wrecking and recovery.
by Fran Flutter. Housing was in short supply post World War Two. It was quite a popular option to live aboard one of a variety of vessels now surplus to requirements – motor torpedo boats, Thames barges, etc. My parents decided to buy a boat that they could sail and, knowing nothing, were fortunate in choosing a 14 ton Hillyard. In 1950 they planned to emigrate to Australia in their second yacht, a composite- built ketch with elegant overhangs but, caught out by an autumn storm in Biscay, they were forced to return to the UK.

We are grateful to Jeff who did this work pro bono (we repaid his very reasonable expenses). The report is included here exactly as written by Jeff - I have made just two corrections of spelling.
