time. Dirk offers to take over part of your drawing work so that
production can start on time.
You also have some questions about the how a clamping profile is
to be joined to an air cushion roof. Is the solution you came up
with going to be waterproof? Your highly experienced colleague
Marnix looks at your solution, runs through it with you and
sketches out some ideas to improve it.
