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”.

December 1, 2019 – Episode 61: Installing the Fashion Pieces
Leo installs the fashion pieces in the stern, framing TALLY HO’s future transom. It’s tiring just watching Leo repeatedly climb the ladder with the massive oak pieces, and we see a rare mistake by Leo when one of the pieces falls from its position and breaks a treenail. As with most things, Leo takes it in stride and makes a quick repair. He also uses massive battens to start getting ready for the bilge stringers and beam shelves, and we say goodbye to helper Rowan.
