[QUOTE=donradcliffe;584103]Yeloya, I probably should have said that there are almost no places in the world that I would trust to do boatwork without supervision, and Turkey is no exception.
This sounds better
What I am saying is that we should stay away from generalisations: there are good people, good work anywhere as well as worse people and worse work anywhere.
You say Tailand is the best. Prout should have thought the same,hence, started manufacturing their catamarans there. I had a beer
last week with a skipper
of Prout 72 catamaran
made in Tailand. I can't tell you the whole story, but in short, the boat fell apart in the first part of the delivery
to Singapour. The owner had to send it to Marmaris by a container ship because everybody agreed soon that she could not do it to Marmaris.. I've seen the boat, workmanship was horrible. You can of course blame the manufacturer but I still have some doubts about Thai workmanship.
The yatch work is a delicate work and unfortunately there are many people all around the world (not only in Turkey or Greece) who doesn't have the skill, professionality to do the job.. Even worse, horrible prices are being charged regardless the quality of the job.
Supervision can reduce the risk but doesn't fully eliminate them. The key is to find right people, reputable companies, see their references
and decide accordingly.
