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 websitehis 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”.

With a heavy wink, Leo takes us through work on Tally Ho’s front door, which will be a traditional frame-and-panel door built with quarter-sawn Oak. We learn a little bit about the history of front doors on traditional boats, and the door opening is cut with some precision chainsaw-work. Also in this video – Zeal caulks most of the deck seams, and the beautiful main companionway hatch and cockpit coaming get installed onto the boat.
