“Thank you Stanton. It was a pleasure meeting you at the St. Pete boat show. My thanks also to (your team) and you for handling the sale of Stanley G in such a professional manner and understanding how difficult it was for me to part with her. But, Judy and I won’t swallow the anchor for good so I guess we’ll begin learning what trawlers and tugs are all about and get ready for the next adventure.
Best regards, Bob” -happy customer
“Gentlemen; We had a great trip to the (Beneteau) plant and enjoyed the tour very much. Dan Kimball hosted us and gave us an excellent tour and overview of the plant’s operations. He was very professional and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We met and spoke with Barbara in the Q/A lab and were impressed with your quality processes. We were also pleased to see the progress in lean manufacturing and the visible presence of a robust 6 S program. I’ve attached pictures of …our Beneteau 34 (in the snow of all things).
Thanks to you all for setting up the trip and thank you Dan for spending part of your day with us.”
