Subject: A Thank you to TekTanks & First Marine 

  Good Evening TekTanks / First Marine,

I am emailing you to express my gratitude to Tek Tanks and First Marine Services for designing and fitting two new water tanks on our Rival 32 (Troskala).  It was unfortunate that on the 2nd December travelling back from Calais to St Katharine's that we encountered a force 9 in the Thames Estuary, our flexible plastimo water tanks both ruptured during this time leaving us with no fresh water.  As we are living on Troskala in St Katharine's before we set off on a circumnavigation we were stuck with no water through the winter,which was not an option for my girlfriend.  I made a phone call to Tek Tanks the Monday we arrived back after being recommended by other friends to use your company.  Upon calling,  a very professional service was offered and in the same day Peter from First Marine Services  called and offered acceptance that he would carry out the work if we chose to go ahead.  On the Thursday of the same week Peter arrived from Southampton to complete the models of the two tanks, he worked late into the night so that he could get the models back to the work-shop to be made before Christmas !!  

I am very grateful for the turn around from model to tanks that Tek Tanks provided. In just over a week  Peter was back with new tanks in hand and a fantastic chopping board with Troskala's name imprinted; this was a fantastic touch which even  my girlfriend liked as it was very difficult for her to get excited about water tanks !! 

Peter from  First Marine has completed a first class job in Troskala.  Throughout the process his communication, workmanship and hard work have been 1st class and we will happily use him again for future work.  As for Tek Tanks, the quality of your product, professionalism and turn-around are very impressive and I will not have to think twice in recommending your product to anyone who asks my advice.

 Again, thank you both for all your efforts in making our winter aboard more enjoyable and giving me confidence in your product.

Best  Wishes,

Oliver Kinchin

"Dear Peter, I was really impressed by the thought and planning that went into the waste tank installation and by the quality of work that followed. That you also undertook jobs that we added to the list, particularly fitting new hatches was an incredible service and all done to the same very high standard. However, most remarkable was your ability to cope with an overstressed client!

My advice to anyone who needs a waste tank fitted - or for that matter any other job - and who cares about their boat and wants a first class job would be to call you..." David


"Peter, just a quick note to say a massive thank you for everything you have done on board "Maya". Your advice and subsequent service has been second to none. All who have seen (and used!) the tank installation have been thoroughly impressed. I will be in touch in the New Year as we are considering the replacement decking that we spoke about."


"Dear Peter, Many thanks for the note -- yes it solved the problem so thanks again. We are currently in South Brittany enjoying a 3 month cruise and apart form the price of diesel in France(!)  all is ship-shape. Many thanks again. PS Do you have a bulk tank / store for wine?  Required spec: fills & empties quickly!!!" Mr. T W

"I’m pleased to say that the tank did its job faultlessly all during our cruise, with no hint of leaks, or the “smells” that I had feared... I was grateful for the job you did for me."

"I would just like to say it has been a 'breath of fresh air' to deal with an organisation in the marine industry who phones when they say they will phone and turns up for appointments as arranged and on time. I look forward to meeting with you again..." Mr A Lord
