As we approach the end of 2014, it is time to let you know the state of things at Mister Vee.
* Batched manufacturing discount *
This was the second year that the self steering systems have been available at a discount for early orders.
My aim was to make manufacturing more efficient and I am still very happy with the results.
So the BMD is here to stay.
In the October issue of the Mister Vee newsletter I mentioned that from 2013 onwards, the self steering systems will be manufactured in batches. In this issue I'll explain things further.
Until now all systems were delivered as soon as possible after the order had been placed.
For some orders that meant that quite a lot of effort went in to the logistics of getting just that single order ready. Small details could require spending a lot of extra time to get an order out the door.
In this newsletter:
- A new way of manufacturing and delivering
- Price changes
Mister Vee is steering towards a newly organised manufacturing and delivery practice.
Almost from the start, all the Mister Vee systems were packed and shipped by a company that employed people with small disabilities.
For quite a few years this went very well. As long as I was able to keep the parts in stock, things usually ran smoothly.
If your boat has a very specific mounting problem, even the versatile mounting kit that is part of Y&B self steering system may not provide a solution.
Or maybe it is better than you feel the need to pay for.
For these situations Y&B is now also available in a basic version. The mounting kit and vane base have been left out so you only get the super sensitive running gear.
Design and build your own mounting and save a bundle!
