I never properly thanked you for the excellent survey you carried out on Isabel which we have now renamed. We have found no problem that you did not identify and your work was extremely thorough. The hull repairs were carried out under the builders warranty and we did a deal with the owners under which we received a dinghy and outboard in return for taking on all the faults. We test sailed her in strong winds and she sailed very well. At the end of the test sail we took her to XXXXXX Marina which will be her home for the next 12 months. She is laid up afloat until the end of February so we are just catching up on all the problems you listed.
Thank you again for your diligent survey and we will take every opportunity to recommend you in the future.

Thank you very much for the template of the foredeck, which I picked up at the beginning of the week. I'll prepare a plywood copy.

This is also my opportunity to thank you very much for your survey work. It was extremely helpful and I am very grateful for your help with showing me things whilst you were doing the survey; and for the advice you gave afterwards. Overall you provided wonderful service, thank you

With best wishes,

Hi John,

I have just got the hard copy.

Its the model of what a survey should be, comprehensive, clear and precise. In view of the potentially serious nature of the deck distortion, and the state of the teak deck, I have decided not to go ahead with the purchase.( I have to say that the vendor did not appear surprised or dismayed.....as I certainly would have been...)

As luck would have it I am off to view another 1 of these boats in Scotland, & hoping for better things.

Thanks again, I am sure you have saved me a lot of sleepless nights, anxiety and hard cash!

Dear John

"Thank you very much for your professional opinion and report thus far. It has been very much appreciated as I am looking for a family boat which will be safe and reliable. If you ever require a reference in the future I will be more than happy to provide one, although I am sure your reputation and experience precedes you."

“I would like to thank you for a most comprehensive survey report on 'HXXXXX' the Westerly XXXXXX. It was probably the most detailed pre-purchase report I have ever received.”

Dear John

"Thank you for sending the survey report so quickly, I will read it with great interest!

It has been a pleasure doing business with you.”

"Dear John
Thanks very much for your support on what turned out to be a more complicated purchase than we both anticipated. You provided me a detailed pre-purchase report and you gave very valuable advice to me during the process. In my opinion you also provided excellent value for money."
