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”.

February 22, 2020 – Episode 66: East Coast Oak and a Pink Fireman
Leo’s back in Sequim, cleaning up after his time away and getting ready to make more progress on TALLY HO. With the beam shelves waiting for to be finished, he acquires an old threading machine, spruces it up a little, and is now able to make his own bolts. What can’t this guy do? Well, he wasn’t able to drive his east coast oak across the country, but when an ex-fireman with a big truck and a cancer support foundation offered, Leo got thousands of pounds of timber to Sequim for the cost of gas and some hotel rooms. Back in action and feeling good, Leo seems poised to make some major progress as spring arrives.
