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”.

As he continues lofting TALLY HO’s lines inside the workshop, Leo has help outside: One friend creates a new plywood guard and a steel base for the big ship saw, digs away the ground beneath it, and lowers the saw so its table is at a convenient height. Another volunteer built a steel table for welding (and gave Leo a few lessons) then hung a handsome new sign for the project at the shed’s peak. Seems that Leo, because of his energy and skill (and the magnitude of the TALLY HO project), is a guy that many want to help.
