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”.

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!
