SURVEYOR'S NOTEBOOK

Great Directors Lead

By Rik van Hemmen

On a recent trip to Sicily to deal with construction issues on a number of high speed catamarans, I saw this forklift parked in a director’s reserved parking spot.

I like it. I am not sure a forklift operator is trying to make a point or if a director is making a point, but there is a point. If you want things to work in a shipyard you have to be able to engage at the production level. A forklift in a director’s spot certainly indicates that yard personnel is interacting with the leadership.
