Well, that's simple. Everyone at the company is in their late 30's or early 40's (I'm turning 41 this year). We've all been doing this so long that we know exactly how long it takes and what we need to do the technical installation or make the interior. We basically managed ourselves.
Another change is that the yacht painter she talked with is also joining us. He was self employed but he's signed a contract and he's going to set up the paint department. Everything paint related will be done in-house from now on.
The only thing I don't get is why it took her so long to take the reins. The fiasco with the house painter who varnished the interior wasn't the first costly mistake her husband made.
