Making good?

It is difficult to know how much ‘requirement’ information you need to give in order to get what you want.  The boat yard staff should offer information about what they can ‘achieve’.  It seems that ‘requirement’ and ‘achievement’ often turns out to be different.  “Oh yes we can do that for you” is reassuring at the start.  Once work has started you are obliged to stay until ‘requirement’ and ‘achievement’ is acceptable.  A boat yard can be a busy place and a quote for 5 days does not mean that you leave after that time.  Boats are being moved in and out and they are also operating a hire fleet of about 6 boats.  We must not lose sight of what we are able to do.  Travelling about exploring and discovering the waterways is what we enjoy.
