Customer Testimonials

Janet and Bill Carver
Date: Aug 24, 2017

Dear John Crawford Marine team, Hello, I am emailing from Devon in England as my husband and I have bought a thirty year old Binks B25. Our boat was built in Norfolk, England by Moores of Wroxham, who built about 30 boats, but they closed down some years ago. We have previously owned a B25 about 20 years ago which we sold to someone in Santander, so we know what a super boat they are for estuaries and coastal cruising. We are required to check the keel "bolt or fixing" for insurance purposes and we couldn’t find any information on how this works. However I have downloaded the maintenance manual from your website which is very useful and a wonderful resource that your company should be proud of! Many thanks and best wishes, Janet and Bill Carver.
