      Thanks. Did you notice the guys walking on what was to be a roof, without any safety aid. 3:40 🙂

        I’ve seen workers walk casually upon steel beams and welders in high places on windy days without any safety harness. Those men have balls of brass.

      I knew that they did crazy things like that, when building Empire State and Chrysler building.
      Danish Working Environment Authority would close down any construction site, were people did something like that. And they would give big fines and everything the law have to offer.

        I would technically be against regulation, yet not everyone can be monitored 24/7 or perhaps in an isolated case, an individual thrill seeker before the foreman catches on even if it isn’t entirely professional. Still quite daring.

        “A Nordic Icebreaker Container ship! Now I’ve seen everything a shame they are selling it to Russians.”
        🙂 True!
        “Also I can’t imagine these dockyards simply vanishing even given a fuel crisis the infrastructure is too versatile.”
        I think so, too! Warnemünde and Nordseewerke Emden Shipyard have also been involved in offshore wind farms.
        As far as I understand Nordic Yards Wismar, Nordic Yards Warnemünde, Volkswerft Stralsund/Nordic Yards Stralsund (former Mærsk owned) and Pella Sietas are not owned by Germans anymore. A number of their shipyards have been closed since the 80s, just like in Denmark and Sweden. It is hard to imagine a world without use of north european (and north american) drydocks.

      Some regulation to protect workers from too much pressure and harm, might be a good idea.

    There are individuals who claims that in a post collapse world “specialized fields” will become obsolete as their narrow frame of thinking is structured around the notion that all high-technology will vanish into a proverbial black-hole. These individuals could not be more wrong.

    They are right about one thing your brain is the ultimate survival tool but they are also wrong, all tools are currency in a post-collapse world as with these very brains or men of skill. Collapse or not where willful European men continue to exist there is always a way.

      I agree! A typical shipyard metal worker would very likely be able to adapt to post SHTF metal work, much easier than a washed up former black metal musician.
      No one can predict the future, anything could happen. The “problem” that you point out is also, that a prepper has to be flexible in approach. One can not be to fix on one type of scenario and think that all is covered. Self assurance can be counterproductive, in that case.

        Exactly for once I’d like to see a group of individuals comprised of various tradesmen/technicians speak concisely from a logical perspective not from purely their heart. That being said these same individuals are convinced that the civilization they so despise will leave them alone in such a SHTF scenario whereas realistically they will be first people targeted. From my own experience the typical Odalist is not a weapon(firearm) savvy person either.
