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”.

Leo returns from the UK and his 35th installment is a kind of State-of-the-Boatshed, preparing to move on to his next steps by accounting for how far TALLY HO has come. After catching anyone up who hasn’t seen the previous 34, he pulls the tarps off the ship saw to cut more live oak frames and refine his technique for putting them together. It seems his time away has left him, as with many projects, looking at the calendar wondering how to make progress happen faster.

A reintroduction to Pancho the macaw and some shower recaulking round out the fresh start and we, like Leo, are looking forward to more progress on TALLY HO.
