Tongue in cheek I suggested in my latest bit of columnar Classic Boat nonsense that I would soon start importing clinker dinghies from China, where they could no doubt turn them out far cheaper and probably to a high standard (given a few hundred to practice on first).
And now I've just had an email to say that my domain name (viking-boats.com) will soon be joined by eight others, in India and the Far East:
I build to a viking tradition, at least. The idea of viking style boats being built in the Far East is, well far fetched. I wasn't aware that their influence extended that far? But then the name vikings seems to have been appropriated by all and sundry, including a company that supplies office supplies. Can't see where looting and plundering has much in common with paperclips and post-it notes...
