Clearly you have never paid good money to a monkey to hack your boat up
There are plenty of GOOD craft people out there BUT it can be painful weeding out the BAD
Billy: I am with you on the Never thought it should have budged opinion.
Sadly I dont think.... I know
tommays has got it right on this one...
I have never ran into so consistent lot of, if not incompetent and least distracted and uninterested bunch of mechanics as there are in the marine industry.
I will apologise right now to all of you good ones
out there servicing your customers well and doing your industry proud. And there are many I am sure.
But...and here I go again with my Heavy equipment analogy ( Sorry for beating the same horse but it applies in so many areas )...But I dont have stuff break loose on anything worked on by others in that arena...and we jar and vibrate and rattle the heck out of the stuff...we wear bolt head clean off we dont shake them loose but ever so vary, very, very rarely... And thats due to wearing the steel out between the hole and the bolt usually not them backing off.
I cant see it being any other reason myself....How did they get water in my boat?....yep they forgot to tighten something...plane and simple.
In my close to 3 year ordeal now dealing with 2 boatyards ...distraction
and by that Im meaning yanking a guy off one boat to go do something on another seems way to prevalent and I have seen first hand lots of head scratching buy the new one assigned to the project to try and pick up where the first, second or third guy left off.
