Building boats is pretty neat, but its really nice to say you build some of the greats boats in the world. This boat company has won two Super Yacht Awards and of course hoping for more.
As a career it is cool to build boats and work with so many craftsman in so many different trades. Laminator's, carpenters, mechanics and machinists all have to really work together to get things accomplished. I still have so much to learn because I am new to the boat building world, but its fun to learn.
Another boat we just got contracted to build is for a man who is pretty high up in the Caterpillar Company. With his boat, the engine rooms will be the main focus. As a Machinist that will let my craft really show off what we can do and what we can fabricate so I am really looking forward to that.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
