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”.

The TALLY HO project is now shifting gears—transitioning from ripping out old wood to installing new—beginning with her frames.

Leo finishes lofting the lines, which will be the source for patterns of the new pieces; the hull is “loosened up” by taking off half her planks so it can be pushed and pulled back to its original shape; and the big ship saw comes into play, as do those live oak slabs from Georgia.
