I wanted to let you know we are nearing 50,000 miles on the odometer since leaving the yard. Wow! We were
sitting around thinking about how many countries we have visited as well as miles traveled. We counted twice
and the number was 51! Anyway I just wanted to tell you and the rest of the team thank you. You have a lot to
be proud of - I don't think many boats rack up this sort of mileage and I attribute a lot of the success to
Dereckor’s team. Keep in touch…currently 225 miles from Singapore!

Derecktors work force and great relationship with outside vendors is the reason for their success. From the front office to the bottom crew, everybody has the 'lets get it done right and once' attitude. They also take great care and pride in their projects. From welding, plumbing, carpentry, mechanical, hauling, paint, project management and even billing, they all take care and concern. I have found the project management fantastic and always approachable to discuss any issues that come up.

They are true problem solvers. I consider every one of them as a friend.

I want to congratulate you all for an outstanding job in the way our fleet of yachts were treated during the 2012 winter months.

At times we had all seven of our yachts in the yard and at no time did I feel any of them received less than 100% attention. Again, the quality of work and the professionalism shown by your personnel was the very best.

I think the biggest compliment of all is that every one of my crew on all the yachts want to return next winter. They all felt that this was one of the best experiences they have had with a shipyard.

I want to add a special thanks to Ken Imondi. He was always on top of everything. When asked for something, no matter how large or small, his answer was always "When and where do you want it?" He made things happen and I never worried about anything with him in charge.

Our new vessel is a true testament to what can be accomplished when all parties trust and work with each other. We are extremely grateful for the cooperation and guidance we received from Ken Inmondi and for Jack Schneider's day to day supervision. At all times, I felt that I could freely call you to discuss any issues that would arise. The final product is one that all can be rightfully proud of and we hope to maintain a long relationship with Derektor.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the team at Derecktors Florida for their hard work and extensive efforts to achieve the owners desire for the yacht to travel to the South Pacific on a self-sufficient, safe and comfortable vessel such as The Big Blue is now.
