March 10, 2020
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".
March 8, 2020 - Episode 67: Installing Beamshelves / BIG plans!
With the beamshelves scarfed and planed, it's time to figure out how to get them into TALLY HO. Ever since Leo started working with these massive pieces, we've been wondering how he would install them, and if he could do it solo. Well, continuing with his creative use of levers, rollers, block-and-tackle, and a forklift, Leo pulls it off and shoves the massive beams into the hull from the stem. He also spends a little more time with Marshall, the Pink Fireman, before he heads back east with some lumber and a boat on their way to new homes. Leo has a rather big announcement at the end of the video, which should have lasting effects on the TALLY HO project.
