Watch Leo Goolden as he brings back the 47’ teak-planked TALLY HO to the glorious gaff cutter she was when launched over a hundred years ago in England. This vessel, designed by Albert Strange, lies under a shed in Sequim, WA, that Leo built next to the shop/apartment he rejuvenated—helped out occasionally by Poncho the parrot and Brian the dog.

The backstories, and there are many, can be found on Leo’s website, his Facebook postings, and on the Albert Strange Association’s TALLY HO pages.

In addition, Leo wrote a piece on TALLY HO for SOUNDINGS Magazine – “Tally Ho, Adventure! The Quest to Put a 1927 Fastnet Winner Back on the High Seas”.

After years as a skeleton, more recently a shell, TALLY HO’s insides start to take shape. The crew mills Douglas Fir boards to become cross-laminated tongue-and-groove bulkheads while Leo compares the drawings of her original layout to his personal preferences and needs. The adjustment from a yacht with paid crew to a world-cruising liveaboard involves moving the main cabin aft, the head forward, and the galley into the main salon. Plywood mockups give a real feel for the space, and it certainly appears as though TALLY HO will be a comfortable platform for nearly any adventure.
