September 18, 2019
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.
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”.
September 7, 2019 – Episode 55: Finished Framing! / Planking Timber
The TALLY HO crew gets extra credit in this episode, as they not only finish the assembly and installation of the frames, but they make the fashion piece, sail on Schooner MARTHA, and have a small-boat regatta. Oh, and the massive planking stock arrives from Surinam, so of course the crew has to unload the very heavy, very green lumber and load it into the kiln to dry out.
The crew seems exhausted, but sad to say goodbye to TALLY HO. It sounds like Leo’s ready to get his hands dirty for a while, so we’re excited to see what comes next now that this big, productive frame-raising chapter has closed.
