Taking stock of the workload going forward.

After a very busy year with a number of projects coming through the boatyard and an increase in workload generally. There as also been an increase in staff members working for the business. Some have been generally good new members, while other new members of staff have not got what it takes to be an apprentice boat builder and they and I have parted company and wish them well on their career path.

It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride at times, however, it has been a learning curve for all of us at J-Star Marine Services and hope that the New Year will give us all a better year to look forward too.

One of the main jobs that is ongoing is to tidy up the outside area of the Boatyard and make best use of all the area around the outside and so make it as productive as possible. The same to be done to the inside and put work benches and storage lockers and shelves  in the best possible places so they can all be use safely.

Good working practice systems to be put in place so that all employees and the owner can see that all time and materials can be accounted for on each jobs, this will help to ensure the correct costing of the jobs undertaken and so that nobody is left in the dark about how much the job cost and if there was any problems with the job it is spotted quickly and sorted out straight away.

This coming week the two apprentices are at college doing the theory part of the apprenticeship course and then it will be back to work for a week, then the christmas break and then back to work and get through the job lists of the boats and yachts we have around the yard. Then it is full steam ahead until Easter.

So the whole team have their hands full and will have to work as a team to get the work done on time.
