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”.

At Sampson Boat Co. in Sequim, WA, Leo picks up on his effort to reuse much of TALLY HO’s original transom, creating a patinaed jewel when viewed from astern. Over at the Port Townsend Foundry, his helpers assist in casting new bronze floors, creating jewels for the bilge, unlikely to be seen by all but the most privileged eyes.
