Catching Up with Roger

I got to catch up with old friend and boat building legend Roger Hatfield today.  I had one insight before the meeting.  I often am critical of shoddy designs and/or shoddy engineering.  I have heard it put up to resentment or something else.

Be clear, I have probably lost more jobs to Roger than anybody else.  But he does great work.  I have never seen anything to be critical of. Thats the difference.  He is in town working out the build of a new Bieker 50′ something cat.  The design fee will be at least $100,000.  And I hear so much whinging about my design fees.
