Happy Clients: Gary & Roxanne @ Sea Ray 31 “Disco Dancer”

5 10 2010

Good Morning Jon,

Summer in Newfoundland is a bit crazy, you try to get everything done in 3 months of sunshine.

I am so happy with my purchase.

It is the perfect boat and exactly what I was looking for.

Everyone loves it. It is working fine and I promise to continue to baby it for as long as she is mine.

This time of the year everyone is gearing up for taking their boats out of the water and getting them to storage or at least winterized. I will get another month in the water.

We had a little brush with Hurricane Igor, everything was OK, but I realize now I have a new worry. The boat.

Let me say, Thank-you, for all the work and help, that you did for me. Myself and Roxanne appreciated it very much.

And although we had our little setbacks and surprises, it would have been much more stressful without your help.

If you need anything or want or need to use me as a reference, of any kind, please feel free to call me.

Wishing you all the success with Brilliant Yachts.

Gary Skanes
Sea Ray 310 Sundancer “Disco Dancer”
