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”.

January 5, 2020 – Episode 63: Milling White Oak Timber in New England
Leo heads to the east coast for the holidays, housesitting in New York City and making a few trips to New England Naval Timbers in Connecticut. There, he meets proprietor Duke at his lumberyard where they prioritize big, well-seasoned oak rather than shipping out small, green boards. Leo choose and helps mill some large pieces for his deck beams, but is looking for help shipping them back across the country to Sequim. He also gets a ride aboard the state-of-the-art tugboat BRUCE MCALLISTER as it helps navigate a container ship out of the waterway. With that, Leo and Cecca keep heading east, and it sounds like we’ll find them next in the UK.
