Tala Hinna : Artist's Home
Tala Hinna is the home of artist, Ellie Lynall. Ellie's got some challenging views about modern life. Of interest to wooden boat owners, here's what she's got to say about plastic boats, “Plastic is one of many convenience materials that is destroying our seas and oceans and it can be distinctly unhealthy if you live aboard, as I do. Besides, I'm a traveller, not a sailor. In our relatively brief time together, Tala Hinna and I have seen some 5,000 miles pass under her keel and she's a cosy home. In spite of our many technological developments, Tala serves her purpose as well now as she did when her keel was laid 49 years ago. Such a shame that so many have bought in to a polluting, throw-away culture”.
Ellie's took Tala Hinna down to Spain and Portugal in 2011.
Tala Hinna was commissioned in 1966 by Jack Ford who, in 1974, commissioned another Hillyard, the 13 ton Tala Nova .
