September 7, 2018
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.
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”.

What you’ll see here amounts to an upside-down jointer—an ingenious shop-built machine that planes the rough-sawn faces of frame futtocks, making a smooth and level surface so that the piece can then be flipped over and run through a thickness planer. This dresses the opposite face and brings the piece down to its correct thickness. Ingenuity at work!
