Could you please elaborate on Frisian Shipwrights. Sounds kind of interesting.

I question the statement "when you are done with her". This is not boot camp.
Do you really think we don't know that? It's not the first time for any of us that we're working with an apprentice.

It's a shipwright from the province of Friesland in the north of The Netherlands.

I for one am glad that there are still apprentice programs in parts of the world that encourage passing on practical knowledge and skills to those willing to work, toil, learn and try!

Well done!

Although shipwrights from the province of North Holland consider themselves to be (West) Friesians too…

Fact is that in the luxury boat/shop business a few handful of firms in the area together hold a mayor share in the worldwide business, on a par with the Italians.

And there's a good reason for this. Dutch yacht builders, together with the Italians, are the best yacht builders in the world. Take Feadship for example, no other company anywhere in the world delivers the quality they do. A good friend of mine and one of the finest shipwrights I know used to work for Royal de Vries in Makkum (one of the Feadship yards) and he and a couple of his fellow shipwrights went to the US some years ago for a re-fit on a yacht that was built at de Vries. This was at Christensen Yachts if I remember correctly, and the shipwrights over there thought they were pretty good but after a few days the saying was: "If it aint Dutch, it aint much."
