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”.

We saw the frame-raising chapter(s) end for TALLY HO, and this installment illuminates just how different things have been. Back to just one person, setting up cameras and work projects by himself. Stationary-camera time-lapses create empathy for repetition as Leo draws lines, pulls tape from the frame rabbets, and uses power tools to make the shaping of the purple heart stem go (a little) faster. The frame-raising was an incredible feat and the reconstruction made huge strides, but the core of this project is Leo’s broad capability, from his precision with a chainsaw to his storytelling ability as a one-man crew.
