    Its like i pointed out every one was saying the same thing in a differant way but the message wasnt sinking in !! . i get sick of holding peoples hands at times . i have that nagging feeling what about me ??
    i learned everything i know on my own . it started as a interest that turned into a passion and became my full time job and my interest and my hobby and just kept me going and going and i have been able to travel and work and meet interesting people along the way .
    I like to help people specially people that are struggling and finally they see the kight and the balls drop and they get the message and run with there gut feelings . but it just wasnt happening , it was going know where and getting no where . Maybe its to simple !! some people cant cope with simple . they always waiting for the surprise the part where it gets complicated . Its not like that at all . he may have lots of knowledge but its not being put to any kind of use its like theres no co-ordination between head and hands . disfunctional is the word ! any way other things are calling .

    While we are being blunt at this point,maybe its time to introduce a couple of considerations.How about the ethics of working with a splashed mould?And while we are at it why don't we get on to the matter of selling boats in a European country without a CE mark and with no reference to the Recreational Craft Directive?
    I have no problem with teaching people a bit about the techniques of producing boats,the difficulty comes when those of us who operate within the legal framework have to compete with the cowboys.

    insults ?? if it takes betting you with a bat id do it !!



    why insult me who dose that? i do and if you went in the army they do as well
    If it was going to take insults to make you get wild and pissed off and really get you motivated then that where i would go !!
    Some times it takes the odd put me down to stimulate the brain and get that flash of inspiration and clear the skys . like lightning and thunder . always clears the bad weather . Sorry !!!
    Im here for the long haul and going know where .
    If you could be standing along side me at my work seeing and watching what a bunch of surposed proffessionall chinese laminators are doing you would want to hand me the baseball bat to beat them up .
    These guys been working for years and learned nothing !! there work ethics are appalling and talk about lazy !!! I had enough of batting my head for the past two years and leaving here at xmas !! either another job but a whole new setup making small boats plus some 10 metre fishing boats and in a differant city in China or possible korea when i finally get to see my korean friend in nz in January .
    your mistakes were nothing compared to what these people do and keep doing over and over again .
    Dont throw your hands up and say i dont like you !!, but if what i said and did would have opened the box and got you on the path to sussess i would do it all over again a thousand times !!:D

    Whoa - settle boys, lets not get aerated. I can see a bun-fight over translation of written materials here.

    If I was playing the diplomat I would say "Its OK Whacker - Tunnels gets really excited over his work, and dashes off his words from the hip, but deep down he is a motivated and concerned kind of guy, and imparts lots of experience that we all find very useful, so we like to cut him some slack"

    Then I would say to Wet Feet "Sure, they are valid concerns, but it might be worth investigating the fine details of this 'splash'. Maybe its a model that hasn't been commercially produced for 15 years, maybe it was a limited run by an small firm that has no further interest. Feel free to ask, but it may be helpful to make a few inquiries first."

    The I would say to Whacker "Many thanks for sharing, and letting us learn from your considerable efforts. Don't mind the sometimes strange words that appear on the pages - they get typed quickly, and can be misconstrued easily. "

    That's what i would say if I was a diplomat, instead of "&%**(*)@!%&^$%#%*(& you *(^&*^%^$ 's "

    Stop beating round the bush man !!spit it out !!!!!

    Tell it like it is and dont spare the verbs or what ever ! you think im trying to make myself look good you couldnt be further from the truth . i tell it like i see it !!
    Mental block or a impractical person what ever !,you have been feed more information than you will find in a shelf load of books ever printed and yet you still cant get it right !! wheres your head at ?? what do you think about ?? what are you really good at !!! i hope you not one of those computer game fruit cakes !! what ever it is maybe that will give us a clue to find the missing lead we can build on and push the right buttons !!:)

    If you were in the army you'd be told to drop on the floor and give me 5o push ups ! so get started !!and when you finished be on the parade ground full battle gear in 45 minutes and if your late you get another 50 push ups added for every minute you're late , like it or not you will learn or else !!
    Obviously you never been in a life threatening situation where if you make one mistake or wrong choice your history !!
    Have you ever been shot at ?? i have a few times !! ,once in my own home sitting by the fire watching TV and if i had got out of my chair when the first shot came through the window i would have been hit in the side of the head with the second bullet when it went out through the lounge wall into the house next door , it passed just half a arms length away between my wife and myself .

    Should go join the army !!!

    how much do you have to spoon feed ? do you have to sit and write a complete blow by blow story and hold there hand all the way from the time they open there eyes in the morning till they close there eyes at night !! uncool!!! uncool is people that cant think for themselves . in a life death situation the never get hit because others are protecting them . in my life time i never had anything handed to me , what i know is what i watched others doing and asked a few questions and learned the rest myself.
    i lost countless hours of sleep and bent over backwards till my head touched the floor almost for this guy , hes got to be on drugs or a acoholic or had a head injury but nothing seems to get through not one single thing so draw your own conclusions,:mad:

    Tunnels ol' mate, its not that bad.

    Some people have the luxury of leaving a problem for a while, and maybe they will get their passion back, maybe they will find another one.

    You are lucky to have a real enthusiasm in your life, but everyone has to be interested in different things.

    Just relax, and enjoy your own interests, and let others find their own way. You helped out a lot, and maybe he will get back to it, or maybe not.

    Well mate, you did your best, the thread history is there for others to learn from, whacker has been defeated by the process & given up......... it's not for everyone apparently, that's what makes boat builders special, this is the "Dead Horse Thread"....... not worth flogging any further. All the best from Jeff
