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”.

TALLY HO has been looking like a boat for a while, but today she gets to look like a sailboat. Her beautifully-made, faceted mast gets ready to step, and Leo and Ian Weedman of Brion Toss Yacht Riggers explain the benefits of the synthetic rigging that will hold it up – as well as dispelling common misconceptions. We also take an interesting look back at the spruce for the mast getting milled in Canada a while back. Wait’ll you see that truckload! The cap rails also go on as more and more elements get completed.
