November 20, 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”.
November 16, 2019 – Episode 60: Carving Sternpost / Cutting Rabbet
Leo and returned volunteer Rowan cleanly cut the purple heart keel and sternpost down to a much more refined shape. The adze work continues to improve, while it’s clear they still spent a ton of the last two weeks just pressing the grinders and power planes to the centerline. With all-new frames and shapely, stout centerline, TALLY HO is really starting to look like a blossoming new boat rather than an in-progress old one.
