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