Prevent
rework by
ensuring
your vision
is the same
as your
client's.

The original V-berth bedspread was uninspired. Consider plaids, geometric and linear patterns in addition to solids.

TIPS FOR ON-SITE SUCCESS
* Stay safe during COVID-19. Confirm that you and the
vessel meet quarantine requirements.
* Consider health conditions of workers and the area
they will be working in.
* Make your own protective " booties " so your work crew
looks professional. Keep extra socks on hand in case
you have to go to the boat unexpectedly and someone
has unsightly toenails.
* Use protective gear including gloves that fit. Knee pads
might help too.
* Include breaks and meals on long days.
* Verify any/all scheduled sea trials so that your crew
doesn't get stuck on board.
* Do everything to ensure that the client's vision is the
same as your own. This will prevent rework.
* Take the weather into account and make sure everyone
is dressed comfortably when working in excessive heat,
cold or rain.
* To avoid rework and extra trips to the boat, measure
everything three times.

The new bedspread enhances the contours of the cabin space.

Headboards, valances,
bedspreads and bed rails
* During the removal of these items,
note any damaged or replacement
hardware required for the installation.
These may become obstacles if you do
not include them in your production
plan or notify the client.
* Confirm with your customer the
additional cost incurred to procure
hardware or materials that will upgrade
the attachment points in hallways,
cabins or bulkheads, such as brackets,
hinges, panel fasteners or Velcro.
* Offer materials that will enhance
the contours of the cabin space,
especially valance panels, as these
areas are often unusual shapes
with transitions from port and
starboard to aft. Review how plaids
or geometric patterns will align and
look versus linear patterns.
* Consider the additional time and
expense for the " little " custom details
that clients try to add in at the last
minute.You don't want to be caught
saying yes to something that is close
to impossible down the road.
