Scope and Content

COPY LETTER: E. Roberts to G. Huxtable. He has received his letter and the contents have left him rather perturbed. Re. the complaints about the Daffodil dinghy, he agrees that this was not in showroom condition but explains that it was one of the earliest products turned out by the young lads employed at the yard. The lads are there as apprentices boat builders, and painting and varnishing does not come with the scope of their trading, and such is another trade, calling for an identical period of training to master. He suggests that in the event of a boat required for show purposes it would be best for him to rail out untouched by brush so that a mater painter could do the job at their end (Swansea). Re. the enquiry for a 11'6" dinghy for the agent - the only one on hand is one built in accordance with Mr. Huxtable's instructions on the strong heavy side, painted, and designed for hiring, therefore cannot be looked upon as a showpiece. The other 11'6" is the one being built for Mr. Van Vlymen, and he is being held up due to delay with delivery of materials. He has gone as far as he can with Mr. Owen's boat, he is unable to proceed without further consultations with Owen at the yard. In accordance with previous instructions he has passed on the payment for the Llandinam dinghy to Mr. Huxtable.
