Letter to Dockside Boat Repair

From: McGray, Donald J
Sent: Tuesday, November 30, 2010
To: 'captain.bob@docksideboatrepair.com'
Subject: RE: Fiberglass Repair
Bob,
"Since I work downtown Houston, nights or weekends are the only times available. I leave home at 6am and get home at 6pm daily.  However, I am off Friday Dec 10th  and will be using my boat that day. Perhaps we can find some time that day? I will go out to the boat this evening to take a look at the fiberglass repair.I have to admit, you guys did the job very quickly… Dependable folks who keep their word in the boat business seem to be a rare find, so I appreciate the relationships you have established . Dave has high praise for your work ethic and professionalism.
That does mean a lot!" Talk to you soon, Don

The Island of St. Lucia

 

St Lucia is a volcanic island, surrounded by lush vegetation. Therefore, a long time it was out of sight for tourists and investors. This is a miracle considering how the surrounding islands have begun to lose part of their charm, because of major hotel chains construction. The island is a former British colony, declared its independence only in 1979.

 

St Lucia is a stunningly beautifil place, it is a combination of the natural splendour, the flora and fauna set in undoubtedly some of the most gorgeous settings on the planet. This beautiul gem is 14 miles wide and 27 miles long with a total area of 238 sq mile, the island is located between Martinique 21 mies north and St Vincent 26 miles south, our population is approximately 160 000 with most people living in the capital and northern area, english is the official language with a french based croeole called patio. The island is rich in culture, charming traditions and a very friendly, The british and the french fort the island 14 year.

Charter Concerns

 

Before you charter any boat you should ask them the following...

  • Does your vessel have Charter Insurance to Protect You? Ask to see their policy.
  • Is the Captain Licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard?
  • Does your Captain have a License that allows more than 6 passengers?
  • Is your Captain in a random drug screening program; which is required by the U.S. Coast Guard
  • How much experience does the Captain have? Captain Bob has over 60,000 blue water miles and has crossed the Atlantic 3 times.
  • Does the boat carry the proper safety equipment & first aid?
  • Meet the crew and tour the boat prior to spending
  • Look at Windsong before you spend
  • Other boats pictures can be deceiving. Windsong has more room than any other sailboat within 500 miles. (photo below) Windsong on the left...

Concerns

"Windsong is the largest legal sailing vessel on Galveston Bay."


 

Railean Distillery makes three distinctive rums and a great Blue Agave: a Texas White Rum, a barrel aged Reserve XO Dark Rum, and a single barrel Small Cask Reserve Dark Rum.

 

A Railean Texas Blue Agave Spirit just hit the shelves and it's by far superior to ANY tequila including the posh so called Petron; which we feel is over rated... 

 

You can find Railean products in retailers throughout Texas, and they have limited distribution in California. The Railean Rum Distillery is open for tours and tastings by appointment; just call or email to check availability.

It gets Windsong's 5 Star Approval...
