Anybody else think it is strange that Hakes goes bust in NZ and the facility is empty and then opens up in China with a full infrastructure the next day...

So, come on, please tell, who's bought her? What is she to be named? What she rate IRC? Is she going to be based on the south coast UK? Will she give the Ker 40's and 46's a run for their money?...

Actually, Paul Hakes is working with Hudson Marine - they provided all the super infrastructure. He didn't up and run like some above are suggesting.

Try problems like glbal economy, rising $NZ etc. Having met Me Hakes he doesn't strike me as the kind of guy to shaft his workers. And as far as the boat being a Chinese copy? - 2 things I don't think JV would appreciate suggestions like that and secondly most of the hot 40 somethings are built in China Kerr, Botin etc

See ya on the water

I will not purchase any product that originated in the U.S. but is now manufactured in China. Just won't do it. It's hard, but I am giving it a try. This is a prime example. New Zealand company moves production to China, yet they still want to sell their product in New Zealand. That means New Zealand jobs are adios. If they want to sell their product in New Zealand then I suggest a 100% import tax on that product.

So you've decided to be 100% anti-globalization. What about if it weren't a bogey-man like China?

As for the 100% tariff, I'd imagine the WTO would have something to say about that.

You're a fucking moron. If it were manufactured in the US, you would be bitching about the price tag. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Hobart is Cat 1, I would have thought Fastnet is the at least the same, no idea about China Sea though.

Does it make any difference to sitting on the rail for 4 days?? Flush deck or not, still wet.

I'd be more worried about "limited offshore capability" as you posted above

It would be fair to say the reaction depends on the yard a boat comes out of. There doesn't seem to be too many complaints about the McConaghy products out of China...

Mex:
I understand totally. But we were taking heat before we even began production. Despite the fact we were working with an established yard that had a very good record for quality at the time, i.e. Passports and Outbounds. I'm not whining. I'm just saying it's interesting how the attitude has changed about China builds. When we tried it was a bad thing. When an established builder moves his production to China to an untried yard its a good thing.

I get it. We were nobodies from nowhere and had no place in the sportboat business. But despite not being in the "cool group" we made some boats that have made a lot of people happy. I love working in China. I like pretty much everything about it. I've worked hard at the language. I have tried to understand the culture. I've been called an "egg", i.e. white on the outside and yellow on the inside. I don't care. I like to see boats being built there. I'd way prefer to see them built here but it doesn't look like that's an option right now. I took a whole bunch of shit 38 yeqars ago when I started to design boats to be built in Taiwan. Damn good thing I did. It pretty much put me on the map and I sufferred all the way to the bank.

I'd love to see a good builder churning out boats in the PNW. None here now.

I have no problems with Hakes moving their manufacturing to China... looks like that's the sensible thing to do - if they didn't, chances are they'd just go out of business anyway.

What sucks is that they appear (** NOTE: please someone with more or more recent info than that article correct me here if I'm wrong) to have screwed their local employees out of their employment entitlements by making the local operation go bust.

I don't get it... Tiller is the right way.. Clears the pedestal... Tiller Extension is on correctly.. It seems to be lined up with the stock.. it is at the back of the boat..

The "they took our jobs" is, in many cases, a reasonable conlusion. Blaming China for it, though, is not. We allowed them to take our jobs by making our purchase choices based on the price tag only.

Amen. But realistically a NZ boat builder probably costs 3-4 x a Chinese one per hour. Given that even mass produced boats involve a lot of manual labour the cost differentials are huge, even accepting productivity differences (which aren't necessarily huge for manual tasks).

Oddly enough, in months before the depression started, I was on a project where we got bids to construct a $5M foam fiberglass one-off performance cruiser (lots of performance). Turned out the US yards could match or beat any yard on Earth -- Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, NZ.

However, the yards in China have really stepped up while the US industry has pretty much collapsed. I thought the accepted wisdom was socialism is bad for economic growth? Hmmm.

That sucks.. it seems they screwed the employees out of their redundancy payments:

http://www.alfalyrae...er-lays-off-15/


The effects of globalization are tough.

But blowing off the "redundancy payments" and apparently even a weeks worth of wages already earned -- as that article states, unrebutted by Hakes -- well, that's "Lets go burn down his house" territory. I doubt that Mr. Hakes (I liked that Z39 they were building some time back) has moved lock, stock and barrel out of NZ. Like Chris Rock says: "I'm not saying its right. But I understand."

Re this: "All boats to be made in China" trend: for you jokers who talk about it being the way to lift millions out of poverty, well that may be an attenuated (and wholly unintended) side effect. But the primary goal is simply to make more money for McConaghy/Hakes et al. Best way to find out where the cheapest labor is at any given moment is to look inside a Nike shoe and check its place of manufacture.

And while some hardworking Chinese may be lifted, those 15 Kiwis sure got dropped. There's no getting around it.

How is this boat any different to the others on the market, ie the Ker40, Farr400 and the Carkeek 40? The STL appears to be shorter than the others for IRC rating reduction?

If the market for the 40 foot races boats is to take off, their IRC rating needs to be competitive (W and LW racing) against the B40, B45 and the TP52's! How is the new Carkeek 45 going on IRC?

Back to the boat.

I hear it's coming in about 5.5t but it hasn't been measured yet.
