Leo Sampson Goolden (portrait in YACHT classic 2/2018) is worried about his restoration project - in the worst case scenario, a move is pending.
"Maybe it is time to tell about what has been going on here for a long time and what is threatening me. Because it could hit the project hard, and you are ultimately part of the project," said the visibly tense Leo Goolden to his viewers as he holds a thick envelope in his camera. From: Clallam County Department of Community Development, Clallam County Courthouse, Port Angeles.
Goolden runs his project on friends' property. They rented the building site and their fully equipped joinery to him. From the beginning, however, the boat builder has to deal with the local administrative authority because a single neighbor there complains about the noisy work.
It is just an individual, says Goolden, who has previously argued with his landlord about everything, as Goolden emphasizes, who is supported by the rest of the neighborhood. The carpentry shop was approved and he adhered to the specified working hours.
In the envelope, Goolden now finds the request to vacate the building site. The Briton tells the background and what the dispute could mean for his project in his latest video.
