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 continues to reexamine his Sequim setup after time away, and true to his M.O., he creates exceptional solutions. With his partner Cecca back now as well and a growing, international team on the horizon, he whips out some fine-looking shelves to feed the TALLY HO army. The UV-damaged shed-covering tarp is replaced by high-quality clear greenhouse plastic, and two new helpers come to start getting the sawn-frame assembly line sorted.

Anyone who has done woodworking projects knows that preparing your setup and workspace properly makes everything else easier, and we always appreciate seeing Leo’s thoughtfulness and skill even on mundane projects. As his new assistants get acclimated, the highlight is seeing the ship saw do its thing in fast-motion. With three sets of hands and more on the way, it’s looking like the TALLY HO project is on the cusp of its most productive period yet.
