Here’s some comments after the seminars:

I caught your 2 pm presentation yesterday at the Vancouver Boat Show… it was awesome!  I learned so much about the systems on my boat and your guys were all very friendly and informative.  I need a few things done I can’t do myself.  I’ll see you in a few months, you’re my new shop.
Your DIY Garage Seminar was easily worth the price of the show.  I have a checklist and understanding of everything I need to avoid the dreaded five figure expenses.  Also how to choose the best replacement parts and evaluating my own boat for systems with poor design and how to update them.  Your guys are the most open and friendly marine techs I’ve met.1989 Bayliner 3288 with dual Hino 135’s.  I’ll see you this summer .
