During that time, the effort to cultivate the experience did not escape the melancholy story. “Never had cheated, too late for the cruise ship, but not paid completely,” he said, and his face was a bit moody.
Around 2017 ago, said Dewi, he never got an offer to make a family yacht in Gresik. The ship was ordered from a representative of the people. “She’s a member of parliament (DPR),” he said.

Meanwhile, people who fix it must have the skills,” he said.
The initial idea was to open a business as ship repair, he said, was inspired by the experiences of the first-first. Often repair the ship in Pacitan in particular. Then it was sticking idea about how to open a boat repair business in Earth Menak Sopal. “Boat-making team of local people here, but there is a genuine senior people from West Java.

Because, most people still have confidence, that make the boat must follow certain days. On this date also should be completed. “My team is only one. So of priority everywhere who asked first. The important thing is not to disappoint the consumer, “he said.
Pandemic Covid-19 also could affect the production of the boat. In the month of June is still two boats were completed. Whereas before there was the emergence of the virus, the Goddess could produce up to six boats for three weeks. “Six boats from government procurement, and the return of the plague expert corona. So if this corona plague subsided, she is also back here, “he said.
