March 19, 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".
February 24, 2018 - Episode 16; Laminating Timbers into an Old Yacht/Cornish Projects
This episode, I do some work on an old yacht in the Butler & Co shed on BANDOR, a 1938 Dallimore designed sloop. The epoxy lamination goes well, despite the cold. The new Ferry build progresses, and I visit some friends who are rebuilding an old fishing boat to start a business with. We also meet a likely candidate for the youngest boatbuilder in Cornwall!
