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”.

With purple heart curls replacing the Pacific Northwest’s recent snow, Leo dives into creating TALLY HO’s massive stern assembly. Precision is the name of the game despite the large scantlings, and we see the care Leo takes to get flat, square sides and dimensions that match the plans. Some trial and error pays off, resulting in a huge item checked off from the to-do list.
