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”.

May 30, 2020 – Episode 73: Finishing the Deck Structure!
The TALLY HO crew sets about finishing and fastening the beams and carlins in the deck structure. Leo also gets to chainsaw the frame heads to the appropriate bevel, a task he clearly relishes as TALLY HO really starts to take shape. Lots of finishing details are required to put all the pieces together; they thread and pound heads onto each bolt individually, and chamfer, plane, and seal each piece before installation. Once fastened, the cross-spalls come out, leaving TALLY HO supporting herself by her own timber and providing some beautiful views of her interior space.
