Want some inspiration mixed with humor from a charismatic young guy who knows how to get things done?

Try watching Leo Goolden’s videos as he begins work on this 47’ hull launched over a hundred years ago in England, named TALLY HO. TALLY HO now lies under the 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” (pages 42-46).

You’ll also get an idea of how many people have helped along the way—and how welcome donations and hands-on help still are.

Thad Danielson, Honorary Secretary of ASA, and OCH Guide Ginny Jones first brought TALLY HO (then named BETTY) to my attention. Thanks, guys!

The Albert Strange 1910 Gaff Cutter TALLY HO is in danger of being destroyed if she is not moved this summer. I go to Oregon to see how rotten she really is and try to decide whether to take the project on.
