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”.

The TALLY HO crew dives into fitting deck beams with great enthusiasm and attention to detail, creating beautiful large-scale joinery tying the whole boat together. Leo also puts on his Sherlock Holmes hat for explaining an interesting discrepancy between TALLY HO’s original drawings and how she was built. All in all, another very satisfying meditation on wooden boat building.
