    Default Holes drilled in my hull :(

    After six weeks, the guy who is supposed to install my bow thruster only managed to drill pilot holes in the hull...

    I bet it's just so that I can't launch until he's had a more convenient time to do the job...

    (Yes, I know it's been raining but... )

    I might suggest to him that this has stopped being a job, and is now just criminal damage!
    Why can't we work 2 days a week and boat the other 5????

    Bit late now, but you could have got Dean from Hayling Glass Fibre to sort you out. He fits dozens each year, and they end up looking like they went in at the factory.

    In support of the guy, I have a load of glass jobs to do and apart from one week in March (Six weeks ago) we have not had glassing weather.You could always move the boat into a nice warm shed, so he can finish the job.

    Don't take me wrong, I'm not having a go at the guy... I'd rather him do the job properly than a poor quality job in the rain.

    I'm just a bit frustrated because the holes prevent me from / postponing the job and going to sea.

    Murphy is having fun today.

    After my last post, I received a call that the tube has been installed and the thruster is going in as well.

    An hour or so later, I received another call to say that the engineers installing the thruster found that the thruster tube is "unwinding".

    Oh dear!
