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”.

This video captures progress all over the boat – the engine-room sole is laid, the diesel-engine exhaust gets installed, and Zeal rejoins the team to do some caulking and fair the keel timber.

Work begins inside the head, including the glamorous job of trying to position the toilet itself, and we meet Pat Mahon, who starts constructing the deck hatches!

In other news, Schooner Martha gets lifted out of the water and George finds a creative use for an original keel bolt.
