"I was impressed with the practicality and usefulness of the simulator program I witnessed at PMI yesterday. Thank you for the excellent work. In my interviews of the experienced Masters, Mates and Managers that attended, I discovered they were all surprised to find out that at the end of the BRM exercise, they had all learned lessons that will help make them better and safer Masters and/or Managers."  Robert Dorn,Vice President, K-Sea Transportation
