Agree some crap comes out of China but not all is crap. Now nearly all our boat making manufacturers have transferred their boat building operations to China, the same press moulds and materials are used. The big difference is we no longer need to buy the materials from China to build the boats in this country or need to pay such high labour rates.

This allows more of us to head out in our boats now we're all on the dole!!!!
