Unsolicited Testimonials

I have my doubts about adding these unsolicited testimonials to my site as it seems like to so much horn tooting but so many others are doing it and the marketing experts say I should, so .............

Hi Wallace,

I just sent over to the owners of Silver Rose my own summary of your findings so they can fix them (they say).

Those photos are AWFUL to look at!!! The rat's nest of wires, the hokey seacock setup with the corrugated hose (were they NUTS?!?) and, worst of all, the wet dipstick.

Thanks so much for the thorough job you did this morning!

I have bought and sold 20 boats, most of them sailboats. This is the most specific and meaningful survey I have ever received. Thank You so much.
Gary Pauly

Many thanks to you! Great report, thorough and detailed …the photos are especially helpful. I am not used to getting such thorough work so fast.
Many thanks

That is great, thank-you so much! I will forward a copy to the insurer. Thank-you for all your help along the way. Your professionalism and knowledge of boats was fantastic and so helpful to us sailing "newbies"

Wallace, Your service is as good as your references said.

Hi Wallace,
We're not sure if you remember us but you did a survey for us on a 1989 Cruisers Inc, 3270 back in May.
It might have been the first survey you did when you got back from your Toronto to Bahamas cruise.
We just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for all the great work you did for us. You helped make our first boat buying experience a pleasant one. Once again we want to reiterate our thanks for being so accommodating and providing us with really useful advice (you directly helped us get a better price on the vessel). If you ever want us to provide you with a testimonial we would be more than happy to.
Thanks for everything,
Ray and Casey Quinton

Just spoke to the insurer. They said I'd need a survey. Told them it was already done, and I hoped that the surveyor was acceptable to them. They asked who it was. As soon as they heard your name, I heard happiness at the other end of the phone. Your reputation preceeds you!

Hi, Wallace. Just wanted to say that I received the survey report. I also wanted to say, from myself and on Paul and Tim's behalf, that our experience with you was terrific.
Thanks for all your helpful advice.
Have a wonderful Christmas.
Norm Owen

I just want to thank you for coming out and doing an amazing job. The quality of your work is very evident and my Father-in-law can’t stop praising you. I will review the survey and undoubtedly have some questions….

Thanks Wallace. You're really good at what you do and I appreciate the time you took to explain things to me. Being a newbie it can be very overwhelming.

Thanks Wallace. I found your survey to be very thorough and professional.
I have no hesitation recommending your services to others.

Thanks a lot. It was an excellent experience and I appreciate the information. I will save time and money by focusing my priorities and resources accordingly. By the way I was talking to a friend of mine in Pickering last night and he asked who was doing my survey. He asked because the guy that did his survey (about 3 years ago) was excellent. You were the surveyor!

Wallace, thank you for providing such a thorough survey.
The owners had commissioned a survey of their own on 9/28 for insurance purposes. They paid approximately the same for their survey by a so called Certified Marine Surveyor. We were given a copy by the owners. There is an incredible difference between the two surveys. His report ignored virtually every finding in your survey. The owners selected their surveyor based on a list provided by their insurance company. I would have thought that this surveyor would at least have found the safety issues.
Gerry & Doris

Wallace....You're AMAZING! See....I KNEW there was a reason why we always think of you first! We'll talk to you more when we get down to the nitty-gritty. Its too bad it worked out we couldn't get you the last time!
John & Joanne

Dear Wallace
Thank you for the excellent service. Your knowledge and willingness to share it are greatly appreciated. I would love to follow you around for a week.
Yours truly
Bryce MacKinnon

Thanks Wallace,
I was greatly impressed with your work and will not hesitate to refer or use again in the future.
Kindest Regards,

Wallace: As usual it gives me great confidence that you will be looking after me.

Always a pleasure to deal with a PRO.
Many thanks

Dear Wallace
I'd like to express my thanks for your very well executed survey of my 53' Sailing ketch, "Great Dane".
I found you very pleasant to work with and was impressed with your integrity and thoroughness. It was very satisfying to deal with a professional. I can and will recommend you highly to my fellow boaters. Please feel free to use my name if you ever need a reference.
Best Regards
Allan Skjodt

Dear Wallace
It was a pleasure working with you, and it was also very educational. Hopefully we weren't too much of a nuisance, but you have a wealth of knowledge that is worth tapping into. Nobody can say that you aren't efficient and very good to your clients. At least nobody who has had a chance to see you in action. We will gladly refer anyone else we know who requires a surveyor. I can't see how anyone could surpass your professionalism, expertise and quickness (in providing the report - you spent a reassuring amount of time on the boat).
Lynn and Ken

Thank you for the survey report - very detailed - impressive- very intimidating from the point of view of someone interested in becoming a surveyor.
Many thanks
Jimmie Thom

Thanks for the follow up. I read the report and forwarded my concerns to the dealer on Friday and they stated that they will address them (before the sale is completed). The Survey was well worth the $$$ spent and helped me to address concerns that a novice boater like myself would not be aware of - definitely not like buying a car. I will definitely keep in touch.

Hi Captain Wallace
I told Don that he was right: you are a terrific surveyor. I really appreciate and value all your inputs and advice regarding the boat maintenance. I feel now that I can safely take my family to cruise the boat since you've checked it inch by inch.Thanks for doing this outstanding survey.
With all my best,
Jean-Philippe PIGNOL, MD, PhD, FRCPC

Thanks Wallace, a most professional survey, and appreciate the comments.
Rob C.F.

Hi Wallace,
We just wanted to thank you for all your advice and knowledge. We learned a great deal from you.
Talk you later!
Dave & Eve

Hello Captain Wallace,
I thought I would drop you a note and let you know that we closed a deal on the 34' Silverton. I am pleased to say that we also negotiated in the deal that all pertinent issues found by you be corrected by Lefroy Harbour.
Once again thank you very much and I will certainly recommend your company to anyone looking to have a survey completed.
Kind regards
Russ Sawatzky

You may recall helping me with some core samples last year and surveying a Sea Ray for me two years ago. In any case I am looking at a bigger boat and wondered how far you would travel for a survey. There is no one else I would rather deal with. Please call me when you get a minute.

We wanted to let you know that after four surveyed boats over the years, your survey report was far and away the best quality! Keep up the great work! The deal fell through so the only good part of the whole mess was meeting you. What we learned from you will make my next attempt to buy a boat much easier. We will talk again soon.
Many thanks

Wow, thank you very much! Terrific report. This brings a big degree of comfort to moving forward with a purchase.

Thanks again

Thank you Wallace for your extremely thorough job ... you are #1 on my recommendation list for my mariner friends.
Thanks again.

Hi Wallace
I just noticed that the Aloha 32 that you surveyed and I declined to buy is now up for sale with a broker, as expected. I certainly have no regrets with my decision and very much appreciated your thorough work.
Keith Aldridge

I would like to thank you for such an informative web site, I know who will survey my next boat.
Derek Keeping

Your report like your web-site is FANTASTIC, no hesitation in writing your cheque.
Manford Daniels

Hi Wallace,
The insurance company was quite impressed with your survey. I'm sure you know you do a thorough job, but it's always nice to hear feedback from your clients.
Once again, thanks
Lesley Winstanley

Thank you for a very thorough job - I am impressed
Will call later to review
Denys Williamson

You will be surveying my next boat too !
Josh Wiwcharyk - President

Good Morning Wallace:
Your cheque is in the mail. Enjoy the great weather, even if you're working, and thanks for the great job. If I hear of anyone looking for a surveyor, you name will be on the tip of my tongue.
Capt'n Dot

Hi Wallace! Sorry this took a while but I just wanted to pass along a quick thank you for the survey and instructional morning on the Hunter 340. Loads of comfort for novice sailors. See you on the water.....or your website!
Peter Lougheed

I appreciate the detail and professionalism with which the survey was done. It was a pleasure to meet you and I will be pleased to recommend your services to others.
With thanks
Reg MacGregor

My thanks for the promptness with which you provided a most comprehensive and detailed report. I look forward to recommending your services to my friends.
