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”.

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.
