This is Manolo, writing from New York on behalf of my
sister and my friend in Spain. They received the Cummins

I called marine Direct on a Saturday morning and explained
my tale of woe. The situation had a real sense of urgency
as the boat race was on the following weekend and Airlie
Beach Qld is a long way away. I needed two manifolds and
risers urgently. The effort shown by Marine Direct to get
the parts from the warehouse to the Whitsundays in five
working days was excellent. Teryy Brown, Whitsindays North
Queensland. September 2003
Dear Scott, My sister and husband in Madrid Spain have
asked me to tell you that the Cummins 555 engine head and
the rest of the shipment has reached them without any
snags. Thanks to your good offices, they could track the
freight and assert their right to have it delivered to
their door. And delivered to their door it was!! Regards,

Dear Scott, just wanted to touch base after purchasing an
Aquavolt 8kva diesel gen set from you two years ago now. I
have been extremely happy with this unit since I bought
it, and it has proven very, very reliable.
I have no trouble running a dive compressor and two air
conditioners at once with absolutely no trouble at all.
Last year, 2005, we went across to Lord Howe Island on a
diving trip, and the gen set was running for 21 days non
stop and never missed a beat. Can’t ask for much better
than that. We did turn it off a few times just to check
the drive belt and coolant levels etc as part of basic
maintenance procedures, but this was only for around 15 to

Scott, Good morning!
Yes ,we have suppliers here we use. However, this family

specifically requested we consider you first. I am

Also, we have business with quality vendors such as yours
as far as Japan.

Will you consider and qoute?

SHARKSHIELD SUPPLIED BY MARINE DIRECT!
I survived a Great White Shark encounter yesterday.
I was spear fishing at Wattamolla Bay NSW with a Sea
Hornet Eliminator 5 pronged spear gun, wearing a Shark
Shield Freedom 7. I followed the rock shelf on the left
side of the bay until I came to the head. It was here that
a wall of large fish appeared, seemingly from nowhere and
unbothered by my presence. I paused and let my eyes
adjust. At first, I thought that they were yellow tailed
kingfish but as I looked closer I realized that they were
massive Australian Salmon. The Salmon were only feet from
my spear gun; I aimed and fired. The speared Salmon took
off, ripping the shaft out of its flesh leaving a trail of
blood behind it.
The school of Salmon began to encircle me as I reloaded
the spear gun. As I put the shaft back on I realized I was
completely surrounded by Salmon; nowhere could my sight
penetrate through. Even the injured Salmon formed a part
of this eerie school. As I looked down to prepare my spear
gun, the fish surrounding me shot away.
Alone in the water I turned my head to the right. Hurtling
towards me was a Great White Shark. Almost immediately the
shark back flipped underwater. This was at such great
speed its body continued moving forward through the
motion. With an amazing demonstration of power it
disappeared quickly from sight. Fear over took me and I
started to swim to land as quickly as I could. Franticly
kicking, I knew I needed to calm myself down so the shark
would not be attracted to return. Looking behind me,
underneath my feet, I made my way the 100 meters back to
Part of me wanted to stay in the water and see the shark
again. I had just witnessed it coming full stick and it
had to turn away due to the protection around me from the
Shark Shield. However, my instinct to get out of the water
was too strong. I swam to the closest point of land and
walked around the rocks as far as I could. I had to re
enter the water despite my new fear, and swim the last leg
due to impassable rocks. I warned the swimmers that there
was a great white out there.
I feel lucky to have experienced something so amazing and
scary and to have swum away from it. I would never enter
the water again without wearing a shark shield as I
believe it saved me from serious injury. The product works
and Thank You. regards, Daniel E.

Hi Scott -
Just a quick update... the package was delivered yesterday
Maybe it was an aberration - or error - but it billed and
arrived as expected.
Great to hear your earlier price included the spares kit -
I was not sure so assumed no since it was not detailed.
That being said (and honouring my earlier words) your
prices are fair enough to buy locally going forward.
Thanks again - you have earned my business.
All the Best!
