Preview: TALLY HO: Episode 14, Part 2; Cutting and Fitting the Keel Timber Scarph Joint

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.

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".
