"Andy crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shit-smelling foulness I can't even imagine. Or maybe I just don't want to. Five hundred yards. That's the length of five football fields, just shy of half a mile."
This famous quote from the movie "The Shawshank Redemption" is what sprung to mind as I interviewed my friend Tom Bevan about his life story.
In todays episode we discuss his long and sometimes painful journey to where he is today.
We discuss his early life in an impoverished estate in Telford
Joining the Royal Navy, in particular the Submarine Service
His move to London and the unique challenges of living in the city of London
And finally his move to the superyacht industry as a maritime engineer
