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".
March 10, 2018 - Episode 17: Massive New Pilot Cutter Build/Ferry Planks
This episode I visit local boatbuilder Luke Powell and his team, who are building an enormous Pilot Cutter called PELLEW, which is a copy of the VINCENT, originally built in 1852. Then I head back to Butler & Co’s yard in Penpol and explain how I fit a shutter plank into the hull of the new traditionally built Ferry that is being constructed there.
