"Doug, I think you've misread my thoughts. "
Not at all Michael! That's exactly what I understood and simply transposed to my experiences in shipbuilding and fitting out. Shipyards always tried to reduce their buying-in costs and pocket the difference 🙄 Fair enough ... until the wheels fall off 🤔
More than once my system designs were passed to the competition who then copied the configuration using inferior equipment / software. Sometimes individual equipments were copied 'almost!' 1 to 1. Often we were recalled (sometimes by the ship owner) to sort out the mess! 😉
Cheers, Doug 😎
