I was very uneasy about renting out my 43' sailboat without me on board for the first time. However, John proved to be knowledgeable and experienced as far as the sailing part is concerned. Plus, he exceeded my expectations in terms for cleanliness, he left everything cleaned up just the way he found it. I'd be more than happy to rent my boat out to John again.
