March 24, 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 21, 2020 – Episode 68: Bending Beams / Pipe-threader Repair
Social distancing is the norm when you’re rebuilding a century-old sailing yacht by yourself. Leo rebuilds his repaired bolt threader and dials in the beam shelves through more clever lever and pulley systems. His cleverness is further highlighted as he makes a jig to adapt a handheld threading die to his machine. Downplaying his own metalwork ability, it’s clear Leo can acquire just about any skill he puts his mind to.
