    Gautier and his crew were fantastic to work with. They rented for a weekend in October where conditions on the bay gave them everything from 30kt gusts to calm air and they handled the boat extremely well. They were very knowledgable sailors and had no issues reefing and sailing her across the bay and back and anchoring overnight.
    There were some mechanical issues that came up on board that were no fault of theirs and they handled the situation great and kept me informed throughout. Due to this they sailed the old fashion way without using the engine across the Bay and all the way up the West River to the fuel dock.
    Gautier was great to deal with and he took great care of my boat. I would endorse him as a renter and hope to get him onboard the Shady Lady again.
