Dear Bill: Over the last few months you were helpful sharing your professional advice for our acquisition of a new sailing yacht. Most useful was the knowledge you shared and marine "education" conveyed about the structural integrity and operational aspects of the boats we inspected. Finally, it was a personal pleasure to meet and learn from you. While we jointly did not find our final choice, we endorse you and willingly offer to act as referral to those seeking your marine consulting services. Regards, Jim & Barbara Gathard
