Hi Mo,

Thanks for your e-mail.  We had a wonderful time and I have just recommended you and the boat to Mr Chad Williams who I understand made a booking for early May.

Dear Mo,

Thank you very much for arranging the house boat. My brother and his boys really enjoyed it. We caught fish and saw a pride of lions.

The crew were great and the boat was spotless. No complaints and I will definitely used it again in the future.

Kind Regards
