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 27, 2020 – Episode 75: Casting Bronze Floors
This week is fully dedicated to the templating and casting of TALLY HO’s bronze floors. After the crew laminates door skin to make the general shape of each floor, they put an amazing amount of work into making them fair and smooth for casting. The molds are then taken to Port Townsend Foundry for sand casting (you can CLICK HERE to watch our video on PT Foundry’s sand casting process). They go all out on the first one, taking it to near-jewelry levels… we’ll have to wait and see if they go that wild on all of them.
