Preview: TALLY HO – Episode 24: Lofting the Lines; Part 1

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.

    This is truly a massive task for one person! Forty four new frame pairs, not to mention floors, stringers and diagonals. Will Leo be able to re-use the stem and sternposts, deadwood and keel pieces? Is the hull to be fastened with roves or bronze screws, or will Leo consider treenails? He didn’t say whether the planking is intact, but I imagine that there will have been some butts where there had been collisions and broken planks. I hope that Leo’s determination to return the boat to its designed shape and scantlings will permit him to laminate some of these pieces.

      Are all the original plans available for old boats and how/where do you look ?

        reason I ask about old plans is I have seen so many boats just sitting and have wondered if they to have been repaired properly or to restore to their original glory .
