April 24, 2018
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".

After taking us, vicariously, on a fast 3,000 mile road trip from Georgia to where TALLY HO is located in Washington State, Leo resumes work on the vessel's backbone. He's followed shortly from Georgia by a flatbed trailer piled high with the live-edge live oak framing stock that he and Steve Cross had sawed out in Episode 19. After a day unloading, using an overwhelmed forklift, the trailer departs and Leo is surrounded with stickered flitches. And shortly thereafter, back on the vessel and helped by a shipwright friend, Leo drops out the old keel timber from the reinforced and propped-up hull and makes it disappear.
