Get a good one. Pay for Ed Cozzi to fly out or ask him for a recommendation.

Griff, you are a gentleman and I thank you. If I book a flight on Southwest Airlines enough in advance, the charges are pretty reasonable. Still is more expensive than hiring a local guy, but I can tell you some horror stories where the buyer wished he spent the extra bucks.

Here's an idea! When interviewing a surveyor over the phone ask him if he's ever surveyed a boat that had Bravo transom plates with #6 Speedmaster drives. If he says yes, hang up!!

Ed, I think you are underestimating your potential market. I think it is time for you to invest in a small plane!!

A job well done in your field means an actual peace of mind in a buyers mind. Your reputation precedes you. I will recommend you to anyone I know that is buying a boat.

Everyone I was in contact with while purchasing my boat had nothing but good things to say about your services. Jason with Full Throttle Transport couldn't believe that you drove all the way to SC to survey my boat.

To me, sounds like a man who likes his job, and knows how to promote himself!

Thanks again,

Wes
