What some of our customers have said...                 
"We have used our boathooks on Kalihilani in battle now and have found them more than up to the task... They still look new and have yet to change color on the metal. We love the extra length and heft. A real seaworthy tool and a pleasure to look at."
Bob Rasmusson, Missouri City, USA

"I have only one word for the product supplied -- EXCELLENT... Service provided was also excellent -- you offered a far better price than the yard who was working on the boat at the time."
Harold Morgan, Berowra Heights, Australia

"A very professional, polished and well-marketed company. Totally happy with the product. Templates were of far superior quality than I had anticipated..."
Barry Stewart, Urangan, Australia

"I'm very happy with the product and many thanks for your great service."
John Howell, Annapolis, USA

"The free advice on matters even unrelated to the purchase is much appreciated. Outstanding -- all the way around."
LtCdr John Gray USN, Lusby, USA

"Excellent quality. Back up and replacement service exceptional."
Owen Chalmers, Echuca, Australia

"The quality of your fittings was much better than I expected. The service was great. No hassles. Everything you said would happen, did."
Roger Munn, Palmerston North, NZ

"They are absolutely PERFECT... the colour, length and thickness is great... and the way that each pennant can swivel on its rod is ingenious. The retaining clips are absolutely spot-on in dimension..."
Ron Warmington, Brentwood, UK

"Nice to talk to wooden boat people!"
Nigel Stoke, Mosman, Australia

"Excellent work!… was done exactly according to specifications… Fantastic finish! Professional look. Excellent work! Mr Mike Field was a great liaison and ensured my timelines were met. Very professional and informative. He should be commended...  Shipping was on time and the flagstaffs were well packed... It truly has been a positive experience working with your company… I have distributed WBF info to other ships in the harbor."

"... incredibly helpful and responsive to all of my enquiries. We are novice sailors and he has been able to clearly explain options to us and give clear instructions. Robands work really well -- great recommendation as I had never heard of them. Lovely to get a nicely oiled pennant staff..."
Linda Taylor, Morningside, NZ

"I wanted to thank you for your help with the dead eyes and the drawing that you provided. The information that you provided helped us manufacture our own in house. They certainly are not as clean as they could be but for our purposes on stage they are working just fine. We are actually using them to tension our lines ... working out very well for us."
Chad Hain, Technical Director, Lookingglass Theatre Co, Chicago, USA
