Lets not judge a boat by its hatches! As we all know, every medium to large firm has its fair share of trainees and juniors, and they either won't have the experience or the concientousness that the old hands will to ensure the job is done to the best standard possible. Sadly there are too many people that treat their employment as a means to a pay packet and not a vocation these days.

If you were employing a trainee in a small boat building firm, what would you let them do. Lay up the hull, rig the engine, fit the tubes or fit a few hatches?

Any of those providing they were correctly trained and supervised! However its easy to point the finger at the trainee. I don't think there is any boatbuilder who can absolutely guarantee that there won't be someone who cuts a corner on a friday afternoon. What matters is how they deal with hiccups when they happen, and how they tighten their procedures going forward (e.g. keeping records of who fits hatches so a problem like this results in an arse kicking retraining; this would also mean you would know which other boats were fitted out by the same chancer so direct after sales activity there). I've seen the finishing on Ribcrafts and its generally a very high standard.

Mines always having to be bailed out, so guess what I have planned for the winter...

Nowadays there are so many materials that can replace wood. One of these is aluminum whose life is bigger and is much lighter. but
