Dear Captain Whittaker:
The purpose of this letter is to thank you for the thoroughly delightful day my wife and I enjoyed with you recently during our training and systems familiarization cruise. Our experience was so positive, educational and just plain fun, that we would like to offer our heartfelt recommendation of you to others in need of the services of a professional captain.
While searching for a qualified captain to familiarize us with our new 57’ pilothouse, you were independently recommended to us by three separate people: our broker, our marine insurance agent and even another delivery captain! Each of these marine professionals highlighted your exceptional credentials and experience, but equally importantly they described you as a “people person” with unique teaching skills. As satisfied customers we echo these testimonies to your reputation.
In conclusion, after completing our systems and operation training with you my wife and I feel fully competent to operate our boat anywhere. In fact, we have several long trips to Canada already scheduled for this summer. We look forward to sharing stories of these experiences with you later this year when we hire you to help us move our boat to California for the winter!
