From: Ricardo A. Tostado
I am as you know quite demanding in my business affairs, and as such I did
not want to let your work go by without my recognition in the way you deal
with my Tehuantepec Gulf weather claim in my 70' yacht. It is a pleasure to
deal with professionals who understand the nature of marine insurance and
are able to make things happen promptly and thoroughly.
Please receive my most sincere congratulations on a job well done, and my
commitment to retain you as my marine insurance broker for my 3 vessels."

claim to settle, Douglas K. Smith Marine Insurance Services, Inc.
was most helpful in securing a favorable resolution for me. They were able to
