I received the rudder blade today – looks great! Thanks for turning my order around so promptly. A pleasure doing business with you.
All the best,

Just received my salon table for my 2006 Hunter 25 from John Owens..a name  that I got from this group.  I still have my 76 Bird…but you guys gotta know…if you need any wood work done…this guy is awesome.  You should see this table.  Would not have gotten him but except from the sunbird group. You guys provide so much info..not only on birds…but can apply to all boats we all own. 

Thanks so much, 

have a 25 Hunter…but love my first sailboat…76 Bird

I apologize for not getting back to you earlier.  I got the board and the build quality is awesome.  I really like the  tapered foil shape you cut and the glass reinforcement. I know this board will be rock solid.

Hi John,

I received the Zuma rudder and dagger board today, They look great. Thanks for the quick turn around on them.
Trouble now is that my boat is still in Utah being borrowed by a friend. I should have it back this weekend sometime.
Thanks again

I got the rudder today, and I think I died of awesomeness.  How’d you cut those leading/trailing edges so evenly?  That mahogany is going to finish beautifully.

John, finally was able to collect the sunfish board tonight.

It looks great.  Can’t wait to try it out.  Now the whole boat will look
old compared to it!

Thank you, John, for making the new rudder.
The boat has not seen water in three years.
We appreciate your service.
