Hey Jono!

On your web site it says "Our expertise: hfdhfdhfdfdhfhf b vbn"

Did you have too many Jaffa Cakes in your mouth when you briefed your web designer?

Don't you lot start... just don't feckin' start... Web designers, I spit on 'em.. nearly as slow as boat builders... nearly as reliable as anyone who spends their time sniffin' resin or glues... What is it with folks associated with boatin' industries?... I can only put it down to solvent abuse/alcohol intolerance...

Anyone remember that crappy cartoon that used to be in places like the old fashioned 'bikes spares shop.. above the counter? You know, the one that said "You want it when?" with a cartoon rolling around the floor laughing?......

welcome to the boat trade....

What you mean is "welcome to the IT business"... it's a simple and beautiful relationship between client and supplier - client pays, supplier supplies!

Obviously you need a reliable web designer with a decent command of the English language. Now where would you find one of those, I wonder?

Speaking as an ex IT manager my understanding of the relationship is

client pays, supplier supplies tekkie surfs


Re the web designers with a good command of the lingo. Give Chinese Ken a try

Actually.. yer right.. it does look a little pretentious.. and is a complete load of ol' bollocks. What it should say is

"one of us spends all day, every day on the water in all weathers and knows boats...the other is a bald headed ol' tosser who knows feck' all, but will kick the crap out of me if I don't include him"....

...but that wouldn't instill a sense of confidence in potential customers, now would it? Call it "artistic licence...."
