February 15, 2018
Want some inspiration mixed with humor from a charismatic young guy who knows how to get things done?
Try watching 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.
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".

In this episode, After unloading the two massive pieces of purpleheart, I have to join them together using what is called a scarph (or scarf) joint. The wood is tough and the tools need to be sharp.
