Attention All ABC Staff,

Wow, what a great course I participated in on Saturday 22/05/10. The boys, John and Steve were fantastic and so enthusiastic. This made me feel even more comfortable and happier to participate in class. I must mention, instructor of the day, Steve (not sure on surname lives Logan area) was professional and noticeably, very happy to teach about the Boating Industry. His enthusiasm and clear concise knowledge of this subject was excellent. Many thanks to John for instructing me on the PWC and as a first time user, he was clear with instructions on the water and fun to be with. What a great asset, John and Steve are too your business. I will definitely recommend the course to all interested parties. Happy new comer to the Boating industry.

Kindest Regards,
