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”.

January 15th, 2022 – Episode 116: Varnish, Paint, and bad jokes!
This week the crew takes on a job that they have been putting off for many months – to sand back and varnish the entire deck structure. It’s a little crazy to try and varnish in such cold weather, but it’s going to be a lot easier to do this before installing the deck blocking and deck planks! Luckily there are plenty of hands, with Patrick returning for a third time, Jake’s final week, and some extra help from friend Nina.
They also continue to process the Yellow Cedar deck stock, adding the caulking bevel and chamfers and painting the underside. Backtrack makes a rare appearance at the lunch-table, and the travelift rumbles past the workshop with another unwieldily load.
