"Victor is shaping up to be an asset to any company needing Mariners to man their bridge.  Quick to learn and having a personality that allows him to interact with people from all walks of life, makes him a pleasure to sail with.  Victor is always ready to lend a hand, no matter the job.  I believe that Victor is very well suited to fill a position as a Merchant Mariner.  I see no reason why he shouldn't climb to the top.  I'd be happy to sail with him again."
