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”.

June 13, 2020 – Episode 74: Restoring the Transom
The beautiful old-growth teak transom is one of the pieces Leo wants to reuse for TALLY HO’s new life. With careful wood selection, graving, and plugging, Leo fills the holes left from years of iron fastenings and creates a beautiful artifact that will donate a lot of character to TALLY HO’s aft end.
