"Many thanks for looking after us this weekend. Disk Drive is still a great boat - really enjoyed sailing her again."

Rog Thomson


"Disk Drive was a fine yacht, with more than enough space for the five of us. The heating was a plus, particularly in the early October mornings. She handled very well, under sail and motor. With two sailors and three complete novices we still had no trouble at all sailing her."



"... the boat was well turned out and very capable for a charter vessel (not like most ).... thanks for all your help.... we are mightily impressed with the service and the boat.... we will be back!"
