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”.

October 3, 2020 – Episode 82: Fitting/Polishing Bronze Knees
What a busy yard TALLY HO has developed! Long gone are the quiet days of Leo toiling away alone; there are now several scenes going on at all times. Whether it’s many days of manufacturing rivets, countless hours grinding and polishing bronze, or moving heavy pieces in and out of the hull for fitment, Sampson Boat Co is humming along in Sequim. It’s nice to get a feel for the various crew members’ personalities and see their common thread of incredible work ethic. A great crew doing beautiful work on an epic boat – doesn’t get much better than that!
