To Whom It May Concern:

If you are considering the guidance of a professional broker or maintenance on your boat you would do well to strongly consider the services of Capt. Andy Lee. My experiences have been impeccable and I expect that yours would be also.
First of all it should be noted that Andy Lee is a very seasoned boater. It only makes sense that he would find a career in what is his passion. Andy listened to what our objectives were showed us several boats and was most helpful every step of the purchase process, additionally he helped with the delivery, and personally either did, or obtained subcontractors for specialty work. I continue to hire or consult with Andy on any need that I have. He is responsive, prompt and is sensitive to the fact that I am not a money is no object person. He gives me, and others who I know he has done work for, the most reasonable options consistent with the safe operation of the cruising vessel that I obtained through him.

Sincerely,
