you gotta move

A Sequim-based boat builder and YouTube celebrity has steered clear of a legal battle with Clallam County.

Leo Goolden said he plans to move his partially reconstructed 1910 wooden yacht to calmer waters in Port Townsend. Goolden announced to his 301,000 YouTube subscribers in a Saturday video that he had reached an agreement with Clallam County that would allow him to safely move the Tally Ho.

Port Townsend is the likely destination for the 48-foot former racing yacht, he said. “According to my lawyers, it seemed like we had a really good case if we actually wanted to fight this thing,” Goolden said in the 39-minute video.

“But the last thing I want to do is to get into some huge legal battle with the county if I can possibly avoid it. I don’t have the time or the money for that, and I want to be building boats, not putting my energy into some legal case.” Read on, thanks to the Peninsula Daily News.
