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”.

June 8, 2019 – Episode 49: Removing TALLY HO’s Stem & Bow
Leo gets back to work after a lovely sailing vacation in Turkey following his time in the UK. Cecca and two new volunteers are along for the ride. The volunteers quickly get up to speed on making frame templates, and then it’s time to attack the stem.

The “springing” of the planks to free the stem is a sight to behold. Watching the stern assembly go in was one of the most gratifying parts of the TALLY HO series yet; we can’t wait to see the same for the stem, which in turn means another frame-raising party! But we won’t get too far ahead of ourselves, as there’s lots of work in the meantime. It’s just nice to see Leo back at the shop.
