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, now lies in a shed in Boat Haven in Port Townsend, WA.

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”.

Leo slows down a little and walks us through the steps of creating the Sampson posts (aka Samson posts or bits), doing all the work himself. TALLY HO’s bits are offset of the centerline, creating some interesting challenges to get them securely fit around the stringers. After so much action in the shop recently, it feels peaceful and serene to see Leo deftly managing big timber and fine joinery solo.
