- - Having been in the business, time is money
to repair facilities and if you are not there or do not have your own supervisor there - more times than not they will switch to the "quick and cheap" fix and then paint
over it. It is amazing what I have seen yard workers do to boats without a owner or owner's supervisor on site.
- - Money
buys quality. Since you might be floating out in the ocean with the boat - what is your life worth? Not to mention any investment in the boat. Little things like interior
trim, upholstery, painting, etc. are no big deal safety
wise, but structural or mechanical/electrical systems should be closely supervised and inspected. Also it is very easy to get a worker to "not do it wrong" in the first place with supervision. It is nigh on very difficult or impossible to get anybody to "re-do" something that is "wrong" after they have finished.
