Preview: TALLY HO – Episode 25: Lofting the Lines; Part 2

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”.

Lofting a boat’s lines full size so that patterns can be constructed is tedious and time consuming. It’s even taken Leo a couple of episodes to explain how he’s doing this for TALLY HO—and he’s not quite yet finished. But, if you’re at all interested in seeing and hearing how the measuring, drawing, double-checking and fairing are carried out, you might never be offered a better rendition than right here. It skips along speedily (relatively speaking), and the upbeat music and a glimpse of Leo’s pet parrot every now and then help keep you engaged.
