I have them on a watchlist and they recently came back up on my radar. Especially now, being a GG member.

I first saw them almost a year ago and wrote a blog;

I was wondering if they maybe caught your eye while you TMF'rs were in Australia?

With their seemingly continuing expansion in the USA they are interesting to at least watch.

If you ever go back to Australia, I think it would be fun for you to get an interview with them and maybe get a tour of their shipyards.
