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”.

Drill, baby, drill! While the framing force assembles in the background, Leo is busy drilling holes through the stern assembly for the bronze bolts. A jig helps keep the long drill bit centered and Leo makes relatively quick work through the purple heart. Followed by some tar and felt bedding, the stern assembly is together in time for the aforementioned “barn-raising” frame crew to get to work – but we’ll have to wait until next time (or watch Leo’s social media accounts) to watch them in action.
