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”.

February 9, 2019 – Episode 42: Cutting the Stern Post – and some BIG plans!
The TALLY HO project continues to evolve before our eyes, as Leo delegates frame construction, a thorough servicing of the ship saw, and other projects while he starts work on the stern assembly and stern post. He walks us through his patterning process and then works to find the right arrangement of patterns on the purpleheart, with a little hiccup along the way.

While Leo’s plate his full with centerline work, his helper Kirt shows that he brings leadership as well as craftsmanship to the shed. Realizing how long the center-section frames have taken, Kirt’s come up with an idea that posits him as Leo’s second-in-charge with some organizational ideas to get a small army assembled to finish the framing by the end of March. If any of you Off Center members have been mulling the idea of volunteering with Leo in Sequim, now may be the time.
