Just wanted to congratulate you on your awesome Fun Boat
My family and I themed it Hawaii on the Gold Coast and everyone had the best ever day.  Your skipper Mick was absolutely awesome. The kids are all saying it was the best day of their lives. I put up a Facebook post on my page and lots of people thought it was a great idea !!
Thanks again for the most awesome day and to Mick 
I thought you might like to see some photos too
Kind regards
