Marina Assessment and Recommendations



It has been a great privilege and absolute pleasure to work with you over the last year. I want you to know that you have done a stellar job on our assessment. This will go a long way toward determining our plans going forward. I know I was kind of a pain but every aspect of the work that resulted from our cooperative efforts has paid off already. I feel and have always felt that without a clear assessment we would be wasting a lot of time and money on misdirected plans. This is just the first step in the process and further details need to be put together in order to move forward. It is certain that we will require more from you as we move forward.

Best regards!

Transient Docks for Fox River Navigation System Authority


“I worked with Dave on a project for the Fox River Navigation System Authority in Wisconsin. FRNSA wanted to buy our docks so boaters could stop and go onshore at different places along the river. He was the Authority's review engineer. His expert advice and engineering skills made planning, permitting and installation of our docks possible. The Wisconsin DNR required detailed engineering review of our docks before they were accepted.

Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
