    I ave not seen one of us being off topic here in the past years. And if, we are joking! But..
    Maybe some members here have a sort of worldwide experience that you do´nt have?
    Gonzo lives in the US, was brought up in another country (as far as I understand it), and works in GB at present. I may assume he has seen more than that.
    I am a German, building boats in Turkey, and Holiday resorts in the rest of the world.
    May that gave a broader horizon than average Joe has?

    And yes, Poland IS third world, compared with W. Europe. But the people there claim to be amongst the leaders of the EU!

    Regards
    Richard

    I just finished a job in Oman before coming to the UK. I had to get blue masking tape from Dubai and resin from the UAE. Sandpaper came from the US. To me working on developed country conditions means my supplies don't take more than overnight to arrive.

    All our discussion is off topic.
    One simple question:
    and only two specific responses.

    3 pages about nothing

    You ask:
    -Maybe some members here have a sort of worldwide experience that you do´nt have?
    -For sure they have , but why they don't answer?
    by the way,
    I travel a lot (included far east), and i have meny friends around the world.

    I see, it is possible to get some masking tape and send paper in Oman,
    so maybe i will stop using sand from my garden for sending boats and i will look around for some shop .

    So, are you saying that Poland is Third world but there is at least one good boatyard?

    There are many places I would discourage people to contract a build. Uruguay, where I grew up and learned to build boats, is one of those. The communists is power have laws that allow workers to take over a business and keep it. The risk for a customers, particularly a foreign one, is really high.

    I see that my english is so poor that you don't understand me
    Once again:
    On the first page only "imolan" gave some contact.
    and on the second page, me.
    So only two specific responses.

    Are there any boat yards around the world (besides these two mentioned)
    able to take this job? "atavist" is stell waiting for the answer.

    Let's start a new thread: About nothing

    Riczard. You are right about EB beer. I can't find this brand at shop any more.
    In Poland, no body wanted to drink it. They stoped production or everything is exported.
