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".

Instead of duplicating TALLY HO's distorted and asymmetrical shape, Leo decides to put the extra time into lofting, full size on the floor of his shop, the hull shape that designer Albert Strange drew, and using it, instead of the existing boat, as a guide to making the 44 new frame pairs. A tough decision and a great deal more work, but we the viewers benefit because we see and hear directly from Leo how it's done. And, as usual, it's done professionally and described well.
