Don and Jane visit the yard regularly to monitor progress and answer questions . Jane grew up only a few hundred metres from the yard and is well known by almost all of the workers there. I have made a number of visits to the yard myself since construction started. I have got to know some of the key employees. I don’t speak a word of Chinese but watching them work I have gained an appreciation for their many and varied skill sets. Many of them have university training in their area of speciality. It was a pleasure to take the entire work force out to dinner on a recent visit.
