Defevers are built in China
- 2001????.... Based on my knowledge of boat production in China
, I would not be surprised at all - even if a boat built in 2010 had blisters - it boils down to the education level of the builders..Mr. Chu (-the cousin of one of the admin workers - got the job because his second cousin left and the job was vacant...he didn't get it because he was qualified -he got it because he was cheap
and available...ISO9001 or what ever its called now - nice and dandy, fact is (disclaimer - there are a few good yards) that if the factory does not have a western educated person on site at all times
, then there will be short cuts.....(disclaimer - I have been told that there are a few good Chinese foremens on some yards like Nordhaven and Selene) .
