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”.

With the planks hung, Leo and Pete share the long, arduous, and rewarding process of fairing TALLY HO’s hull. With a variety of tools, they launch into the first round of pre-caulking fairing. Even though this is “roughing it out,” it looks wonderful (at least from behind a screen). If you’re like us, you’ll want to reach right through the computer and start rubbing the hull too.
