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”.

April 4, 2020 – Episode 69: Making Deck Beams / Hiring another Shipwright!
After some incredible solo work getting the beam shelves into TALLY HO, Leo is joined by his new quarantine-buddies, Pete and Patrick. Pete is the paid professional – a shipwright from Port Townsend who recently worked on the WESTERN FLYER’s restoration. Patrick is volunteering his time but clearly knows his way around large-scale projects and tools. Together, the team gets bolts and deck beams together to tie TALLY HO’s port and starboard together at long last. It may still be Leo’s recurring “2 years left,” but the work will clearly go quicker with these able hands involved.
