The machine shop within the Koupetoris Shipyard once belonged to Pantelis Koukis but Nikitas Prasinos, the son of Christina Karayianni and Dimitris Prasinos, had a share in the shop at an early age. When Pantelis retired a few years ago, Nikitas became the sole owner of the machine shop.

During the winter months, when “Faneromeni” is on the hard for maintenance at the shipyard, I have ordered a number of items to be fabricated in the machine shop. All the items made by either Pantelis or Nikitas were machined carefully and reliably.

I was very saddened recently when I learned that Pantelis had passed away.

In the meantime, Nikitas is keeping up Pantelis' standards and is his worthy successor. I like Nikitas and I trust him.
