Last week I was in the throws of having Sweet Pea painted at Butler Railway in Reedville. I only have weekends to deal with it, and the team on the boat was about to go to the paint stage. We needed paint. And picking a white in my world of obsessive color disorder is crazy. But!!!!!
The primer used was PERFECT! I am slam dead on. Pettit Primer 6914. But no white that color. And I wanted Kirby’s Paint anyway, so I called Kirby’s ( George Kirby Paint Company) and explained my dilemma. Now what I am about to tell you, there is no way in hell anyone else would have done this.
George did not have that color as a sample. I was up in DC, boat in Reedville. Another week to send a sample. So George said he would take care of it. Turns out George went to West Marine and bought a can of Pettit Primer 6914 and did the sample himself. I am not sure how to express the thanks and gratitude I have for that. It made them a life long supplier, hell, made them a partner in my on going projects.
Its not just about the paint being high quality, but the passion, the customer service and support. I have no idea what the cost was. It s that good of an experience. I wish WoodyBoater had a 10 Star rating for such businesses. I would give them an 11.
To obscure of a joke? If you have never seen Spinal Tap, you have homework this weekend. TRUST US! Best Film EVER! I give it three thumbs up.
