Everything I've learned has either been from doing it the first time, or from others who have learned before me and generously shared their knowledge. This is my first time on this particular operation. I can see how the factory did it, but if I knew WHY they did it this way, it might give me guidance on whether to deviate a bit, maybe even improve since they built this rig 32 years ago. If there's a really good reason why they did it this way, I'll certainly stick to it.

Whether it's leading TLCA or building a 40, I want to know WHY something is done a certain way before changing the way it's done.
