"I got the light mast wedge you sent me on Monday as you predicted. I installed it on Tuesday and all is, once again, well in my boating world. I thank you (again ) for your dedication to excellent customer service. I have always talked up you and your company and its products and will continue to do so. I enjoy relating to my yacht club buddies this kind of boating experience. Thanks again, I hope to see you at the next boat show to shake your hand..."

"I am writing to share with you both my experience in dealing with PYI Seaview in trying to find a solution for a custom mast for a yacht I am purchasing.

I have never before written the Owner or Management of a company to commend an employee. However, I would be remiss if I did not do so in this case. As evident in the below series of e-mails, Mr. Abrahamsen has displayed tremendous patience and professionalism in his interactions. I profoundly appreciate his assistance. As a result of his dynamic and exceptional customer service I hold PYI Seaview in the highest regard and will certainly recommend this company to anyone seeking such a product solution. I hope you appreciate the asset he is to your company."

Respectfully,
- Mike


"Just got a chance to open your package this morning and I can’t tell you how pleased I am. The first thing that caught my eye was how well the contents were packed. Everything was protected and it looked like the box was custom made for my order. Then the excitement of opening the individual components. Again each box was nicely wrapped and the contents well protected. And finally, the inspection of each piece. The quality of your product is evident with the first look. The instruction were simple and all the necessary hardware was supplied.

All in all, dealing with you and your fine company was a first class experience. I am so grateful for running into PYI at the boat show. You now have a customer for life and I will be proud to show off my new mount. Will tell everyone who asks where I got such a fine solution for my Sat and Radar concerns.

Again, thank you for a wonderful experience."

"I wanted to take a moment to let you know how Max Prop has effected Free Spirit's performance. You may recall, Free Spirit is a 30 year old 48' Nicol design, ketch rigged, (cold molded), trimaran, at 11 tons of displacement. We sail her over 5000 miles annually in Hawaiian waters, cruising to most of the islands every year for the past 17 years. Over the past 5 years, in our quest to enhance performance we have modified her keel, rudder, and sail plan (which is currently 930 sq. ft.). Everything has helped. With these modifications her speed increased, she now tacks like a monohull, and she's pointing to 55 degrees, (at times). However, none of this prepared us for what the Max Prop has done. Down wind in 25 knots, 6-8 ft. seas, we have cut our 11 hour trek from Honolua Bay on the north east shore of Maui to our slip in the Ala Wai from 11 hours to 9hrs and 15 minutes. Coming home from Kona on the Big Island in December, (our first cruise after installing the prop), we were close hauled under full sail in 30 knot winds and 8 to 10 foot seas crossing the Alenuihaha Cannel averaging 10 to 12 knots, the crew screaming with excitement. I never would have expected such a change. Best we can determine, we've increased performance to weather about 5 degrees and speed by nearly 20%. Plus, no more prop walk in reverse. Get a little way on and she backs wherever you point her. These results probably don't surprise you, but just in case you haven't heard from a tri-cruiser in the past, the best way to describe the change is to imagine that for 29 years Free Spirit has been dragging a 55 gallon drum and suddenly we reached down and severed the tow. I highly recommend Max Prop to anyone, but most especially to every trimaran."

Thanks for the boost. Aloha!

"If anyone ever is dubious about the strength of the Max Prop mechanism, you might want to show them this letter. A few weeks ago a Little Harbor 54 was coming into Philadelphia from New Zealand as deck cargo on a container ship. She was supposed to have been offloaded into the water and then come to our yard to be rigged. As they were lifting the yacht off the ship a sling broke, dropping her ten feet or so onto the concrete. The 31 ton yacht fell stern first, destroying the rudder, causing extensive hull damage and breaking one blade of the three-blade Max Prop. Believe it or not, the Max Prop mechanism still works perfectly! The yacht is several years old and has been cruised ten of thousands of miles, but the Max prop works as smoothly as if it had just been installed. And that is after taking an impact sufficient to snap one blade like a potato chip. That is one hell of a piece of machinery!"

Sincerely,
- Peter Vanadia, Philadelphia Marine Services

"My new custom radar mast from PYI turned out to be one of the most satisfying transactions I have been involved in during the restoration of our 1985 Tollycraft 37 Sedan. The customer service, technical expertise, quality and delivery were outstanding in every way, and my new mast is one of the most impressive upgrades to our boat so far. We have gotten a number of very positive comments from fellow Club members, and it is easy to recommend PYI products to my fellow boaters.

The most outstanding feature of our new mast is that it is tapered evenly all the way from the base to the top, and I have never seen another mast exactly like it. Most similar boats have a mast that was cobbled together from pieces of sailboat mast, none of which is ordinarily tapered. Also the design of the hinge mechanism, spreader bars and antenna mounts is absolutely first rate. The metal work and welding are not only very robust, but the finish work is outstanding. Topping off my beautiful new mast is a perfectly color matched powder coat paint job that is nearly flawless. This is the most elegant looking mast I have ever seen on a powerboat.

My mast arrived in a timely fashion from the initial design concept to final delivery, and the packaging was designed in such a way that the finished product arrived at my boat in perfect condition. The mounting plate and connection to my existing bridge railing were executed perfectly. Installation was easy and all the necessary hardware was included in my package.

My special thanks go to Jason Abrahamsen whose design work is outstanding. Jason even made two special trips to visit my boat in the Edmonds Marina to make sure that the final dimensions were perfect."

Best regards,
- Jim Maddox

"The engineers at PYI worked with the OCM® engineers thru several design iterations until the perfect fitting and functioning folding mast was constructed, said Salus. This highly customized Seaview® mast provided the absolute minimal height and equipment separation tolerances we required and was even delivered already powder-coated to color-match our own work thus saving our team even more valuable time and resources that we could devote elsewhere on other projects; PYI provided truly great customer service and support, thank you!"
