Hi Chris, Re Thank you: Its 3 months now since I took delivery of our Merry Fisher 795. I must thank you and Sea Ventures for all your help and assistance since becoming a customer. As you know we were originally looking at the Cap Camarat range, but after conversations with your self we decided on the 795. What a great decision, and the fact that we needed to increase our budget has now proved to definitely be money well spent. We have already been out for 40 hours and with the enclosed cabin it’s been more than comfortable. We always feel very smug when we go past other boats and their crew are wrapped up in coats and scarves while we are wonderfully warm and comfortable, thinking that could have been us if we had not followed your recommendations. I can whole heartily recommend the 795 to any of your customers that are in the same position as we were in.   Many Thanks   Dave
- David G (New Merry Fisher 795)
