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, 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.

The backstories, and there are many, can be found on Leo’s website, his 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”.

Resourcefulness is alive and well with TALLY HO as Leo brings Mohamed to the mountain. He works down the massive new purpleheart keel timber (aka, the mountain) to its finished shape using only a beveling chainsaw and a portable power plane. Then, with planks, rollers, pry bars and a floor jack, coerces it into position under the hull. Lots of well-directed energy at work here!
