Hope for the Future! New Factory Progress!
Updated: Jun 15, 2021
Hello! I hope everyone is doing well during this era of historical crossroads!
Here is another report directly from Paraguay, reported by Mrs. Tomoko Sato, who continues to stay there on site:
Acuamundo has been working to build this 2nd Factory/Boat Hotel on a raised land, due to repeated interruptions we experienced from the unexpected floods that started happening 6 years ago. I feel that this building is an important turning point in our Ocean Hobby Industry Providence.
I even dare to feel that this building is an internal "Paraguayan Ocean Cheon Jeon Goon," signifying a dyad to the Ocean Cheon Jeon Goon in Gomundo Island in Korea. By creating a pair of Ocean Providence bases on the opposite axis of the earth in subject and object relationship, I feel that global energy will begin to circulate. A global-scale oceanic vision will begin to advance at once!
After the "sand raising" that was carried out over 2 periods, each with 54 rounds and 18.5 rounds (of adding sand to location). Leveling work was done afterward to reach the completion of a 3.5m plateau. On the finished plateau, gravel is to be laid, and the magic of construction begins! The factory to be built on top will be sized at 50mx25mx7m.
On September 16, the site managers from Baek Szmuc came to the site. Ms. Anna, a female, is in charge of the team. On this day, we had a meeting about setting up the men's toilet, construction office, and worker's dorm (using the storage space).
At the same time, "landscaping" has started. I am sorry the photos are not the best, but they are starting to fill the raised ground with soil. They are going to pour about 20cm of soil, then lay gravel on top.
On this day, the indigenous to Pantanal, the Anaconda, showed itself to cheer us on as well!
The ramp gravel is complete, and we are now starting a project to strengthen the sidewalls of the ramp. Stone walls are extremely expensive, so we chose a method of stuffing recycled tires with soil and building them up as a wall. We put the soil into a tire, push the soil in with a hammer made from heavy stumps (created by our technician, Tamori), to make it into a hard loaf. It seems that it takes 30 minutes to make one tire at this point. We need 1500 of them in total to complete the wall.
Right now in Paraguay, the water levels of the rivers are said to have dropped the lowest in the past 50 years. They say that it is an excellent opportunity for ramp and building construction.
At the factory, centered on Naruse, Mori, Aldo, Ugo, and Maria and others are working on a mold for a new 21 footer model in order to develop the team's technical capabilities. We also continue to work towards economic independence through continued sales activities. We recently received orders for boat waxing, equipment replacement, modifying, remodeling, and boat repairs.
Yoshika and JeongMi were in charge of renewing a roof and FRP seat cushions for a boat.
This time, they bought a sewing machine and fabric to custom create the cushion. I was watching worriedly from the sidelines, but they completed the work with real patience! They sometimes had to re-sew parts of it...
It seems that we are receiving orders one after another due to the season. They are constantly creating and sending out a quote.
There also was an order for boat design, and John and JeongMi are on it. It's regretful that I don't have a picture with all of them together, but everyone is doing good!
