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”.

The TALLY HO crew looks a little delirious as they finish up a marathon of casting. With the last few lodging knees out of the molds, the yard is abuzz with final grinding and polishing. As the last floors get fastened and the knees get ready to go in, it’s time to start looking towards planking, so the crew uncovers the massive stack of Angelique and gets to planing. Looks like TALLY HO will get through Halloween still looking like a skeleton, but not much past that!
