That article is certainly an eye opener. I couldn't imagine spending the kind of money that some of these RIBs fetch without acually touring the plant to see exactly
how the boat I am about to order is fabricated.
If the plant were within a reasonable driving distance I sould also put a stipulation in the contract that I could regularly stop in at the plant to check on it's progressive production. Many of the boats cost as much or more than houses, and it's pretty much a given that if someone were having a house built for them that they would regulary stop by the construction site to monitor the progress.
