You do a great job- thanks!          R.D.- Nordic Folkboat We won the Westpoint Regatta last weekend. A light air event and I’m sure that a clean bottom helped us to ghost through the dead spots. Thanks.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         D.B.- J/105 Thanks so very much for getting us in so quick!                                                      F.S.- Defever 48 Once again, stellar service and I want to thank you! I really do appreciate it!                                                                                                 S.M.- Pearson 33 Thanks for the job you did on my boat last Friday. I sailed on Sunday and had a 21+ knot top speed. Fast Bottom! ;-)                                                                                                                                                                                  F.B.- Diam 24 I've used other 'cheaper' divers in the Bay Area all of whom to a man stripped the expensive bottom paint off with overly aggressive scrubbing pads (particularly troubling if you have an aluminum saildrive susceptible to galvanic corrosion) or didn't actually do the work. FastBottoms specializes in doing it right by graduating from soft pads over time up to stiffer ones as the bottom paint ages...which translates into the paint lasting twice as long. Their pricing is competitive with the other higher quality/trustworthy divers, and pays big returns when considering that you get 2x the life out of the expensive antifoul. Lastly, I appreciate that they have a high level of professionalism reflected in the divers themselves, the scheduling, electronic invoicing (with detailed description of the bottom, through-hull, keel, and propulsion condition), and convenient online payment system. These folks are the real deal and you can trust that the work will be done right.                                                                                                                                                                                                                   J.H.- Beneteau Oceanis 38 Just wanted to send over a quick thank you for the great job on (our boat) recently! On Wednesday’s race we beat the fastest boat in our fleet for the first time in YEARS, and I think it definitely had something to do with our squeaky clean bottom!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     E.Z.- Tartan 30 You have provided a great service for me and I will be contacting you in the future.                                                                                                                  R.A.- Catalina 42 Thanks for being so helpful with the new (”Invisible Hand”) project. We really appreciate your extra effort.                                                                                                                                                            S.G.- Pacific 52 It has been a pleasure doing business with you. You have been professional, reliable and have done a good job.                                                                                                                                                               S.S.- Jeanneau 409 I've been a client and recommending FastBottoms for 15+ years.  He is a true professional and has gone out of his way to make this customer happy.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   G.N.- Azzura 310 The bottom was obviously cleaned extraordinarily well last week and my sail around Angel Island was superb. Thanks.                                                                                                                                                                              L.J.- Beneteau 35 Thanks, Matt. We won the beercan last night, beating (our main competition) for the first time... this season. All props to our bottom man for making us slippery!                                                                                                                                                                                                                       J.H.- 1D 35 You’re worth every penny!                J.S.- Beneteau 39 Thank you again. Your work has been excellent.                                                           D.L.- Capri 25 Hero!!! The video is perfect. Thanks again for the great work and service.                                                                                                  D.B.- Islander 36 It’s amazing what a difference (a hull cleaning) makes.                                                                 R.M.- Santana 22 Love and appreciate your professional evaluation.                       A.T.- Converted U.S. Navy Survey Boat You do a great job running your business. Thank you.                                                                       J.P.- Cal 2-27 I appreciate your hard work!                    R.C.- Freedom 36 Thanks for such great service!                         K.G.- Catalina 36 Thank you for your fine service.                                                                                                                       D.G.- Hunter 36 Great job on the bottom cleaning- boat looks great.                                                              D.S.- Corsair 31 Thank you again for doing an amazing job.                                                                                                   S.S.- Union 36 Thank you for getting the boat cleaned on such short notice. It looked great.                                                                                                     D.A.- Outremer 55 Went out with a friend in 30 knots. Boat performed better than usual, with a clean bottom.                                                                                                                           C.G.- Jeanneau 49 Thanks for the “Fast Bottom.” I finished second in the SFYC Resin Regatta and picked up a first place finish for the first time in years.                                                                                                                                                                                                  B.D.- Nordic Folkboat We sold our boat and won’t be needing your great service anymore. I want to thank you for taking such good care of our boat and if I ever hear of someone needing a diver and cleaning, you will be the only one that I would recommend. Thanks for everything.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    S.H.- Beneteau 423 Your service has been excellent and very appreciated. I will highly recommend you to anybody looking for a diver.                                                                                                                                                       J.M.- Morgan Out Island 28 Thank you so much (for taking pictures of the corrosion on my running gear)! You saved me a saildrive!                                                                                                                                                                  C.C.- J/88 Thanks Matt- we had a fast bottom this weekend for sure, we did very well in our class to Half Moon Bay!                                                                                                                                                                 G.E.- J/124  I really appreciate the quality of your work. The bottom was beautiful when we hauled it- I might have gotten away with another year!                                                                                                                                                                                                         J.N.- Catalina 30 We took the boat out and both (Max Props) worked great- much smoother and quieter. The max power RPM was obtained, so I think you got the pitch just right. Most speeds seemed to be about half a knot faster for the RPM.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  D.A.- Outremer 55 This is a great service and peace of mind- wish I had done this a lot sooner. Easy company to work with and fast service with e-mail updates along the way on progress etc. Could not be more pleased.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  N.C.- Downeast 38 Thanks- great work. Boat was quick!                                                                                              G.E.- J/124 Thanks for the fast service, Matt.                                                                        J.V.- Grand Banks 32 Thank you, Matt. We appreciate you and your service.                                                                                                                O.N.- Catalina 270 Thanks again! We are very excited (to have a clean hull.) You’re awesome!                                                                                                                                                         S.S.- Union 36                  My bottom feels so much better. Thanks!                                                                                           J.S.- Beneteau 39  Thanks Matt. Clean is fast- we got a second place on Wednesday.                                                                                                             M.L.- Merit 25 It has been a pleasure doing business with you.                                                                                                J.S.- Island Packet 38 Thanks for taking good care of our boat.                                                                                           T.L.- Catalina 310 I appreciate your advice over the years... which has always been spot-on.                                                                                                                                                  D.N.- Catalina 320 Thank you for your continued excellent service.                                                                                                      M.O.- Corsair F-28 This was the best bottom cleaning I have seen!                                                       C.C.- Ranger 28 Matt, you are awesome. Let me know if you ever need an endorsement.                                                                                    D.K.- Hans Christian 38 If I had some zincs I would have you change them.                                    B.P.- reknowned naval architect Hey, just wanted to put in a good word for FastBottoms- he dived my boat for the Great Pacific Longitude Race (LongPac) this year (as he does before most of the important races.) It was a light air endurance test and... the clean bottom helped me make it to overall winner.                                                                                                                                                                                                                         D.N.- Olson 34 I will recommend you highly- you always did good work, on time. Thanks  much for your ten years of bottom cleaning, through four bottom paint jobs, the last just last month. Also for your comments on the bill: "Bottom needs paint NOW" got my attention every time!                                                                                                                                                                                                                K.H.- Olson 25 We have appreciated your fast and honest service over the last couple of years and thank you for your work.                                                                                                                                                                                                     M.S.- Island Packet 38 I had to splash my dry sail prepared Andrews 28 (epoxy bottom coat only) due to inability to hoist her immediately. Matt from FastBottoms took on the job of twice weekly hull cleaning, and did an excellent job. After about 6 weeks, the bottom was still clean. I'd recommend him for hull cleaning in the Bay.                                                                                                                                                                                                               J.M.- Andrews 28 I want to thank you very much for doing such an amazing job with the bottom and making it so clean.                                                                                                                                                  J.E.- Catalina 27 Thanks for the service. Came in first place (in the) shorthanded division. Saw 15 knots on the speedo, thanks to you!  The boat is very different (and better) when clean.                                                                                                                                                                                       C.C.- J/88 Thanks Matt, we had a good race... due to your efforts.                                                                  J.T.- Wyliecat 30 Thanks so much for your great service over the years.                                                            J.M.- Santa Cruz 40                                                                                                       I appreciate your follow-up; exceeds ALL others! Quite happy with your service.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  S.M.- Pearson 33                                                                                                           The boat went very quickly after your dive.                                                                                                                                                                G.E.- J/124                                                                                                               Thank you Matt. I will trust the bottom of our boat to you every two months.                                                                                                                Your recommendation makes sense.                                                                                                                                                                                                                    R.T.- Catalina 42                                                                                                                   Quick service from FastBottoms with great communication before and after.                                                                                                                                                                                                            S.B.- Jeantot Privilege 39                                                                                                                          Excellent work- confirmed with haul out. Hull had years of growth, (which)                                                                                                                            FastBottoms removed back to bare paint.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             L.A.- Hunter 326                                                                                                                                  I went sailing all day and it’s so much faster with a clean bottom!                                                                                                                                                                                                   L.B.- Pacific Seacraft Dana                                                                                                                                     You are the best at what you do.                                                                                                                                                                    D.A.- CHB 34                                                                                                                                          Thanks for the prompt service!                                                                                                                                                 S.R.- Pacific Seacraft Flicka                                                                                                                                      Thanks for all your help and doing a fabulous job for me.                                                                                                                                                                                                          J.M.- Santana 22                                                                                        We usually do well on a boat that you help keep going fast!                                                                                                                                                                S.R.- Express 37 Many thanks for your super service these last eight years. Very professional service you provide and I will continue to recommend FastBottoms Hull Diving.                                                                                                           D.N.- Pacific Seacraft Pilothouse 32 I asked around the Encinal Yacht Club for a diver referral and everybody gave me your name.                                                                                                                        P.M.- Cooper Prowler 32 When I manage to get the boat pointing in the right direction and not blow up any sails we are pretty fast, and (you deserve a) share of the credit.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                D.N.- Olson 34 Thanks for the excellent service.                  D.H.- Beneteau First 30 Thanks for all of your work and keeping the bottom in shape.                                                                           D.M.- Freedom 29 Thanks for your very dependable and thorough diving service.                                                                              S.R.- Pearson 32 Thanks for getting that prop back on so quickly, Matt!                                                              P.B.- Nonesuch 30 Thanks again for all your help this year.  This year was our best ever for racing results and we owe a lot of that to you.                                                                                                                                                                              D.K.- Islander 36 Boat is back in the water from the yard.  Hull looked good when pulled so I appreciate the work you have been doing.                                                                                                                                                                         J.H.- Cabo Rico 38 A quick note to let you know I just donned a pair of flippers, a mask, and a snorkel, and cleaned the bottom of (my boat) while at anchor in a bay just south of Mazatlan, Mexico. The (money) I pay you to do this is some of the best money I spend!                                                                                                                                                                                                      J.V.- J/109 I really appreciate your honesty. It is hard to find folks that do business like you in the Bay Area. I will definitely be sending business your way. I am 150% sure I want to be a repeat customer.                                                                                                                                                                                                       A.H- Endeavor 33 You are part of the crew now… the bottom cleaning really does make a difference.                                                                                                                         D.S.– Cal 39 Thanks for being so reliable and easy to deal with.                                                      A.S.- Santa Cruz 50 We finished our Party Circuit Season 1-1-3-1-9-2.  A lot of that success was because of you!                                                                                                                                 D.K.- Islander 36 You did a fine job on the bottom. She’s fast!                                     D.K.- Hans Christian 38 Thanks for the service and the heads up on the paint condition on our Catalina 30.                                                                                                                M.B.- Catalina 30 I can tell the difference between a freshly dived bottom and not.                                                                                    D.N.- Olson 34 Thank you for your excellent service over the past 10 years.                                                                               J.S.- C&C 115 Thanks Matt. You’re a stand-up guy.                                     B.G.- Olson 25 (The boat) was sold in July. Thanks for all of your years of service, appreciated very much.                                                                                                                               R.M.- Hunter 34r Thanks for all of your good work.                              J-P.R.- Tartan 30 “Resolute” looks great, Matt. Especially appreciate the condition report. Thanks so much.                                                                                                          J.H.- Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus Thanks Matt- I appreciate your service.                                          J.R.- Alerion 28 Thanks for getting to my boat so promptly. We won the first half series at OYC- looks like I’ll be moved to a faster fleet in the fall.                                                                                                                                                                                                J.T.- Wyliecat 30 The boat has been winning. It can’t be my driving, so it must be your diving! Thanks!                                                                                                                     H.S.- Santana 22 We had a first Wed. night race. Took first in our fleet and beat up all of the other boats in faster non-spinnaker division as well!                                                                                                                                                                                             J.T.- Express 34 Thanks for all the wonderful years of service.                                                    J.P.- Ericson 35 Won last race! T.M.- Santana 30 I have sold my boat. Thank you for all your years of service.                                                                  J.R.- Hunter Vision 32 You brought us a winner!                T.M.- Santana 30 We got a first in the last race! Thanks!                                      A.H.- Wyliecat 30 Thanks Matt! We got the barn door for the Ditch Run and a nice trophy!                                                                                                          T.S.- J/32 Great job of cleaning last thursday! We were fast!                                                          B.C- Catalina 27 Thanks for your great service.                    M.N.- Marieholm 31 Thanks for responding so quickly. I appreciate that.                                                                 J.C.- Hylas 49 Hey Matt, thanks for pulling/installing the Kiwi Prop so quickly. Works great!                                                                                                    P.B.- Nonesuch 30 Keep up the good work. We have two firsts, clean bottom is great!                                                                                     B.C.- Catalina 27 Thanks for the great service.             A.G.- Ranger Tugs 25   I appreciate your service and professionalism. I’ll be back in a different boat eventually and will certainly call on you again.                                                                                                                                                                                               R.P.- J/105 First across the line in our division. We beat a Santana 22 and a Catalina 30! Congrats 2U!                                                                                                                                 L.T.- Ranger 23 Thanks for... the cleaning. We were able to hit 17.5 knots on the trip down the coast! And that was without a spinnaker!                                                                                                                                                                         D.C.- Santa Cruz 50 (We) won the mid-winter GGYC series. Thanks for your part in this, Matt I appreciate it.                                                                                                                                  R.P.- J/105 Thanks for your good work and (I am) looking forward to doing business with you in the future.                                                                                                                                    G.G.- Catalina 380 Thanks for the great service over the past years.                                                        R.S.- O’Day 27 Thanks for the good and reliable work.                                                 S.K.- J/35 Thanks for getting to this on such short notice. Your service is the best! I passed your name on to the new owners.                                                                                                                                                                          J.T.- Santana 22 Thanks for the great job you’ve been doing on the boat.                                                               F.B.- Norseman 447 Thank you! Good to put my sweet, fast boat in your hands. A 3rd and a 1st (in the) Chowders. Good fun!                                                                                                                                                  R.P.- Santa Cruz 27 Thanks for your fast response on changing my prop.                                                                  J.O.- Hunter 34 Thanks again for all your good work and ethics when conducting business. You are one of the few outfits I can say I’ve been lucky to find and deal with in the Bay Area.                                                                                                                                                                                       A.H.- Endeavor 33 Thanks for your professionalism. I’ll call you when I get my J/120.                                                                                          S.N.- Tripp 40 We took a second and a fourth in two races in the Jack Frost series. Woohoo!                                                                                                           J.T.- Wyliecat 30 The yard said you had been doing a great job which I confirmed by our racing performance.                                                                                                                                            J.W.- J/35 Thanks Matt- we won the race. Bottom must have been perfect!                                                                                J.C.- Wyliecat 30 Thanks for the good work. We got the boat to San Pedro in 50 hours.                                                                                      R.R.- Macgregor 65 We won both our races! Keep up the good work!                                                              P.K.- Merit 25 Speedo works like a charm, boat sails as though it had a new bottom job- and it was done on time as promised. Thank you.                                                                                                                                                                                    D.K.- Nonesuch 26 I have sold the boat and recommended your services to the new owner. I thank you for the service over the past year or so and believe you provide a great service at a truly reasonable price.                                                                                                                                                                                               T.M.- Ranger 23 Whatever you did before the Plastic Classic worked great! Thanks for the terrific job.                                                                                                                 L.S.- Pearson Triton Thanks for all your hard work.                      S.M.- Hunter 33.3 We got a first in the last race! Thanks!                                    A.H.- Wylie Gemini We won all three races since your good work.                                                    T.M.- Santana 30 We won the Big Daddy this past weekend. Thanks for keeping us fast.                                                                                                      J.W.- J/105 Thanks for the great cleaning job last Friday. We raced J/Fest Saturday and won our division. The former owner who now races a J/35 hollered over that the bottom looked perfect.                                                                                                                                                                                                         B.J.- J/33 I like your service and have passed your name on to others.                                                                      M.R.- Nordic Tug 32 Thanks for excellence during the summer racing season. With your expert care, we placed FIRST in our division for the summer series. Clean bottoms equal race wins! More important than new sails or sailing skill on our boat.                                                                                                                                                                                          R.P.- Santa Cruz 27 Thanks to you we won (the) 16-race Wednesday series (and placed) 2nd in the Friday series.                                                                                                                                  T.M.- Santana 30 I wanted to compliment you on the bottom job you did on my boat last week. As soon as I started motoring I noticed a big difference. My cruising speed... was... about 3/4 of a knot faster than the last time I took her out! We sailed/motored 225 nm last weekend and the extra speed really helped.                                                                                                                                                                                                          S.H.- Catalina 42 Thanks for your great service this past year.                                                   D.H.- Merit 25 Thanks for the prompt attention and finding my keys.                                                        R.N.- Santa Cruz 50 Great job today! There was a noticeable improvement in boat speed- at least a whole knot, even to weather.                                                                                                                                                         T.S.- Beneteau 331 Thank you for your reliable service.                                           S.H.- J/24 Thanks for your continued great service.                           R.H.- Wauquiez Gladiator Thanks for a great job last race.                         R.B.- Andrews 56 The last bottom cleaning was excellent. Boat motored faster than hull speed. I’m going to have to recalibrate the knotmeter!                                                                                                                                                                                                G.H.- Cal 35 Thanks! You... have been doing a great job- we won the OYC Brunch Series!                                                                                          C.S.- Columbia 5.5 Meter Thanks for the bottom cleaning- took first in our division last night.                                                                                     J    .T.- Wyliecat 30
You’ve been the most professional diver I’ve talked to yet.                                                                    M.B.- Dufour Arpege
