Good Morning Greta & Co.,
My wife and I want to hug and kiss you!
On our cruise home from a service center, we couldn’t plane or even get out speed up over 11 knots.   At wits end, we had you, A1, come out and clean our hull and running gear in hopes that would at least partially help restore our performance.  Nervously, we took a sunset cruise yesterday and felt the difference even before we got into open water.  Once out on Terra Ceia Bay, we quickly popped out of the hole and got up on plane, and exceeded 20 knots which is higher than our normal cruising speed, and I wasn’t even full throttle!  I still can’t believe that barnacles and algae and mussels could affect the performance that much.  I never got so much enjoyment playing with the trim tabs!  LOL
We also appreciate the full report with description of the condition of our boat below the water line.  It was very informative. 
We will certainly highly recommend your services to anyone in need of hull cleaning, detailing, etc.
Thanks so much!!!

You guys are a wealth of information. 
Don't know what I would do without you.
Being steered in the right direction to honest reputable people, is a good thing.

I appreciate all your help!

Your service was "Outstanding"! Thanks again.

Wow A1! Now that is some nice teak cleaning. My teak-decking has NEVER looked so good. Set me up for regular teak maintenance, along with everything else you do for me. Thanks so much.

Thank you for the service. I pulled the boat yesterday and everything looks Great ! Your guys did a great job!!


I want to thank you for the exceptional service on my boat.   And you were very dependable.  So...the good news is we sold "Choices" and will be closing at the end of February.  She sold quickly which means we will not require any more of you wonderful cleanings.

Good Morning,
Just reviewed your report in my invoice, which was very thorough and comprehensive.
Thank you very much!

Hi Greta,
Yes, we're moving our boat north to Michigan!  A Captain will be bringing the vessel up for us.
Please feel free to use me as a reference for your service.  I will also let Galati's and my salesman there, know what a great service you provide.  You will be the first call when we return, although it may not be to Anna Maria......still looking for a 'permanent port' along the Gulf.
Even though we never met, you've been wonderful to work with.  I want to compliment you on the report with each invoice.  They've been very helpful and comforting, just knowing that someone else was taking care of our boat, as if it were their own.
You run a first class, professional operation and set the bar for your competition.  Keep up the great work!
Best always,
George V.

Hi Greta,
I have found it is the nature of the boat business...shoddy work with little accountability is the norm, for whatever reason. By the way, that is why your service is so unusual and valued by me. You are reliable and trustworthy.
Best wishes, Steve

You always did such a great job and had very detailed reports.  I appreciate your great service over the last two years.  If I somehow end up with more boats to manage on the west coast, I will let you know.

The boat ran well on our return trip to Clearwater, with no more vibration and 3 knots faster!

Thanks for all you did for us, in a hurry, while just passing through.

Happy New Year!
Unfortunately, we have no openings for topsides detailing until the end of this month. If you can’t wait, we understand. We hate to lose a job but we want our customers happy. Hope you keep us in mind for the next one though. It’s been very difficult for us to find experienced, responsible and dependable help!
Bottom cleaning is on Wednesday.
Best regards, Greta
