[QUOTE=stroker1]

Gary has worked as a boat builder for more than 15 years and was originally at Rib-Tec with the build of all the Camel Trophy ribs.

15 years. Rubbish!! He was a kitchen fitter when he started at Ribtec in 1998.

Stroker were you based in eastlands for a short while?

Sorry did I miss something. I didn't say it wasn't did I?

So did you used to be based in Eastlands?

Quite, and perhaps you would like to get your facts right first Kieron. Gary worked at Osprey for a decade where I first met him before Ribtec.

.

Which probably makes his skills even better with an ability to understand more than just one type of work .
I had a guy work for me who was a top shipright , but still he had to learn about plumbing , laminates , sealants , and working with many different materials and finishes and adhesives . In turn I learned more about fibreglass from him .

Diversity and experience is what makes really skilled people not working at one job forever.

If that's the case Pete then I apologise. I must be remembering a different story. And from what I remember of his work whist working along side him it was to a good standard.

However Pete you do seem to have a problem with comments I make. why? I don't think I even know you? but you seem to think you know me. Have we worked together in the passed?

Mate of mine is a time served shipwright, he turned to 'chippying' about 15yrs ago and likened it to 'wood butchery' by comparison.

'chippying'

A term used to describe virtually anyone who makes things from wood .

I make hand made furniture and bespoke kitchens and joinery but Iam still referred to as a Chippy . Simply because Iam a carpenter.
You have to judje the person by thier work not what they are called .

Err well apart from one carpenter who lived a long time ago, think his initials were JC

Keiran, you attacked Garys reputation, he like you, relies on his good name and the quality of his workmanship to survive. Given some of the quotes Andy was given and that other firms who wouldn't take on the job, its nice to see people like Gary willing to quote sensibly and then do a good job thats going to last. For Andy it means he is now back on the water and Gary rightly gets the good publicity and a reputation for being able to do the more unusual repairs. My earlier post was too strong though, sorry.

Pete

Where was the inference to YOU being a 'Chippy' ?! You might find a small one on your shoulder.
