October 23, 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".

Leo takes a break from work to wax philosophical on what it means to rebuild a boat, and how this question has been posed over many millenia. Adding to his jack-of-all-trades resume, Leo proves that he is not just an amazing worker and project manager - he is also a thoughtful philosopher, able to pull in examples through the ages and combine them with his personal experiences and point of view. It may be, in his words "staring at [his] ugly mug for so long," but it's a valuable episode to gain more context on the work he's done and, more importantly, why.
