Where Credit is Due May 2013 Issue

Where Credit Is Due: May 2013


Our 1986 11m S-2 sailboat has long had a traditional-style Edson teak cupholder at the helm. Unfortunately, Edson no longer sells the style (www.edsonmarine.com), which was replaced by a stainless-steel/teak holder thatís a bit too Euro looking for the S-2. I called Edson with the hope that the old style might still be available, but no such luck. However, Edsonís Bill Keene checked around and came up with a display model still mounted to a boat show display. Through Billís kind effort, the holder arrived within the week at no charge. A little TLC to renew the finish, and we will again have just the place for our beverages.

Edsonís quality is, of course, legendary; no less so is its customer service! A big thank you to Edson and Bill Keene.
