Can't say I'm surpised Barry. They have been building boats for their french operation for years and shipping them over there. Last winter, we had our boat in their marina having just bought it, and when we had the few weeks high water we could only just get to it because the yard was so badly flooded. The sheds were awash about 8" deep, and the poor sods were working in there in wellies.

It's a shame though, that another set of skilled labour will be redundant.
