    without secure and satisfactory arrangements for payment already having been made

    Hello eveybody!

    There is a strong bond of trust between most shiprepar yards and their clients, and it is relatively rare for a ship to sail from a yard without secure and satisfactory arrangements for payment already having been made.

    In my opinion, the bolded fragment "without secure and satisfactory arrangements for payment already having been made" is tantamount to "without already having made secure and satisfactory arrangements for payment". The general meaning behind the fragment is that most ships leave a yard after having made secure and satisfactory arrangements for payment.

    Isn't my way of thinking warped?

    Thank you.

    Swap "already" and "having".

    "...payment having already been made".

    I firmly disagree with you, JACEK1. I don't think your way of thinking is warped at all!
