Good afternoon Peter
My thanks again, both to yourself and Josh, for the courses yesterday. It was the most productive day I've had for some time. Getting my boat and jet ski licence is something I've had on my To Do list for years, and it was very satisfying to yesterday tick off the prerequisite courses for obtaining those.
All the best,
"Peter has the passion and knowledge to keep people wanting to learn.
Any person would benefit to have Peter in their circle of knowledge."
I would like to thank you and your wife for a great day on Saturday. Your manner and ability to communicate made the experience very enjoyable and gave the participants an understanding of their responsibilities while in control of a boat
