“I tell everyone who asks that the days I spent with you and the other members of the Sea Sense team were some of the best days of my life so far! My husband is a great judge of character and women and you are someone he very much admires. I think that he was more excited than I that you were teaching, but I was definitely more excited than he once I got into it! Thank you for some of the best days of my life (I mean it!). You have greatly enhanced my passion for boating.”
