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”.

As Leo approaches hanging his Angelique on TALLY HO’s oak frames, he brings in Time Lee – the lead shipwright from the WESTERN FLYER rebuild – to help make the planks’ widths proportional and attractive. This appears to be more art than science, but is crucial to creating a hull that looks fair and proper.

A few new great team members arrive, and the amazing work creating the gleaming bronze pieces continues.
