Many thanks for your excellent service and good luck to the 'Jenny Wren'.
Without a doubt your finest feature is the helpful and kindly nature of your yard-men who deal with the boat lifting and re-launching. These chaps remain cheerful in the most awful weather and are the most efficient that I've come across in almost 30 years of boating. Their handling of the boat lift is a joy. Please pass on my appreciation to them.
I am so appreciative of all your efforts and hard work.What stars you are (and always have been).
This looks great. Looks like a very neat and professional job.
Thank you very much for your assistance in this matter All documents receivedA pleasure to find a company who cares!

Forgot to mention how impressed I was with Matt [Morgan Marine's chief engineer]. I always try to pass on to the right person when I experience good service so this is just to say that he's a credit to you and only adds to the whole experience of buying my lovely Prestige 38s through Morgan Marine, which has been great. Thanks again to you and all your team for ensuring that this boat dream of ours lived up to expectations.
We are so delighted with the launch Saturday - with our boat performing so wonderfully on her first spin out. Thanks to the whole team for making this possible.
