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”.

October 2, 2021 – Episode 107: Bulkheads, bulkheads, bulkheads!
The title says it all, as Leo and crew are all-hands-on-deck preparing and installing TALLY HO’s bulkheads. From dry-fitting to sealing the endgrain, bedding the edges to plugging the screw holes, it seems like a well-oiled machine, though we know there are plenty of details hidden in the process.

The other exciting news is that Leo is auctioning off his gaff-rigged sailing dinghy, using the proceeds half for spar stock and half as a donation to our friends at the great community boatbuilding program Rocking The Boat.
