Dear Captain Bob,
I've written this recommendation of your work to share with
other LinkedIn users.

care of my 35 foot sailboat while I am away on business. He
has taken a neglected boat and turned it into a wonderful

Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert
Last year we had the fortune of employing Captain Bob of Dockside Boat Repair's
services for our vessel, the Puma. The Puma is a research vessel owned by The
University of Houston to conduct water, fish and sediment sampling
in the Houston Ship Channel and Galveston Bay. We dry dock the Puma each year
for several months and most of the time on the water is during the summer
months. Because of this work calendar our vessel
care and attention in order for it to run well. Captain Bob
provided us with exactly what we needed and he was extremely accommodating to
our hectic schedule. The vessel had not had any major work done
to it in years other than battery
replacement and oil changes. Captain Bob took
it upon himself to provide guidance and consultation on what he saw as potential problems or issues with the
Puma. Since we rotate graduate students on a regular basis there is no one
person who is consistently in charge of our boat. It was a relief to find
someone who would not only do the necessary work but
also go above and beyond to provide recommendations for maintenance and general
upkeep. We now have the confidence to begin our summer sampling knowing our vessel is in good shape and we also know
we can rely on Captain Bob for future maintenance and repairs as they are
needed. I recommend Captain Bob's services. We find him to be a valuable asset
to ensuring the smooth operation of our
