Dave,

While I do sympathise with dirty washing being cleaned in public, please do acknowledge that some of us are skilled boatbuilders, in carbon, composite, GRP, and even wood.. In my experience, carbon mast repairs, are not difficult, but once it goes slightly pear shaped, it goes totally pear shaped.... I would have refused to release the mast to the owner, until I was happy with the repair, no matter how much I was pestered for it.... It looks like this may have been a learning experience for you, with regard to protecting your image...

We have all cocked up a few things in our time (I remember launching a customers boat, but not checking that all the hoses were connected to the sea cocks, when we checked on the boat a few hours later, the decks were at water level!), but, as long as we learn from our mistakes, we should improve...

Jon

@fudheid

Your tone was hardly suggestive of a mate doing you a favour for free with a sh*t bag write-off that should've been scrapped... you kind of insinuated that you'd been ripped off with a botch job.

perhaps your next opening post won't fail so miserably first time round

According to the MD of the carbon specialists (oh yeah they are specialists, i know i should name and shame but i won't) it took 35 manhours to Feck this up. When they saw the job full of confidence 'no problems, we are experts at this will be good as new' Dead


dude... with mates like you....
