Quick Build

Recommended Posts

Good to see great boat building alive and well in the UK, although I was surprised to see the video labelled ‘Diresta Woodworking ‘ (I assume Jimmy Diresta of New York?) when in fact the video was a straight lift from the builder's own website - Fairlie Yachts. Based in Southampton, I think. 

 

To be fair, I watched the video on the YouTube app on my iPhone - maybe there was proper accreditation given on the full YouTube channel, but if so I didn’t see it.

There wasn't Derek. I didn't pay attention if it was Jimmy Diresta, I was merely interested in the production method. As it is rather impressive ...

I agree, and thanks for posting - I enjoyed watching. Please don’t think I was criticising you. I was simply surprised to see the video labelled Diresta Woodworking, when it had actually been produced by the boat builders themselves.

Best wishes,

Derek
