Charter Yacht STORM PETREL - Comments - Daysail New England

Last Tuesday we had a woman call about a surprise birthday present for her husband. He enjoys sailing but no longer has his own boat. She said that he'd be so happy to be out on the water again. His birthday was that Friday and she'd like to arrange for a daysail charter (Thursday, if possible) in New England... How about STORM PETREL?  Perfect :)

Called Phil, no problem. He has a charter for the weekend, but Thursday would be great. Hooked him up with the wife so they could discuss charter details such as meeting place and lunch arrangements.

AFTER CHARTER COMMENTS: "Brian and the gang had a great time. Brian was thrilled and is talking about getting another sailboat. God help us!"
