"Just wanted to drop you a line for your outstanding work on several of our yacht repair projects, your knowledge of the industry and levels of thermo imagery are outstanding especially with all the high tech camera devices and the process you use to provide an extremely detailed report of the bottom and hull sides of the vessels. The colors on your report that indicate the amount of water intrusion and delimitation present , as well as the temperatures and imagery that shows the anomalies and or other defects. This is very useful to us repair contractors as we know what the scope of repairs are before ever having to cut open the boat, the identified areas, the amount of moisture and water content, this makes it a lot more efficient to quote out a repair and saves the customer and insurance companies a lot of unnecessary initial expenses. thank you for your proffessionalism and detailed reports the INDUSTRY sure appreciates you and your qualities."
