August 25, 2020
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.
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".

TALLY HO's planking is going to require some 3-4000 copper rivets. Displaying the magic of a large social media following, someone has been working behind the scenes to give TALLY HO's crew a leg-up when it comes to rivets. A dedicated fan has spent the last while creating a custom rivet press machine for Leo. It turns a potentially exhausting process into an efficient production line, seamlessly churning out a few rivets per minute. You've just got to see this thing in action!
