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”.

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!
