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”.

Zeal expertly goes from chainsaw to planer to chisel en route to constructing the solid teak and purpleheart Fife rail, while inside Nic works on some cherry cabinetry for the chart table area. The biggest news of all comes after the gooseneck brackets are fastened on and the massive, beautiful boom is lifted and mounted. It hangs so far past the transom it required a special aperture into the building!
