Capt. Billy,
I just wanted to send you a short message about our trip on June 19, 2009.
I could not have planned a better trip.
I started out to book a trip as a fill in and as I was waiting at the booking counter I met Joe as he was trying to book a trip also as a fill in. We decided to put our two families together and make one trip so that we could choose our own captain (Tuna Fever).
Thank you! for the opportunity to met new friends and shared memories. The hospitality and patience that you demonstrated was greatly appreciated. There were four first timers in our party and they ALL want to return and do it again. (even the sea sick) That alone speaks volumes of the experience that they shared.
Thank You again.
God bless
Michael Baumann
