Re: Ship building in the UK
Remember working in palmers new sheds which was all modernised like a massive conveyor belt starting off with steel plates in the top shed and a complete 100 ton unit getting taken out on a low loader to the dock to build the ship. Seen senior management showing lots of oriental people around the sheds one day. Asked the question who are they was told oh its OK they are just Koreans having a look around. Talking about shooting yourselves in the foot.
