October 1, 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".

Leo returns to the UK for an update on PELLEW, a replica of the 1852 Falmouth Pilot Cutter VINCENT and set to be “the largest new wooden boat in the country!” Leo and Chief Shipwright Luke Powell discuss the repercussions of size in this project - the incredible timber for the mast and spars, the massive scantlings in the hull, and keeping a project of this scale moving forward efficiently.
Once PELLEW is complete, both her use and repair will help sustain the yard for years to come. The entire project is geared towards bringing a new generation into traditional boats and boatbuilding – our kind of cause!
