This is the 3rd compass rose I've done in the past year, hot off the press...one for Hinckley and two for a custom builder on the coast. I'd like to get pictures of my work to any and all luxury boatbuilders. I've found an international web listing of around 50. My question of the day is- Would it be spamming to e-mail to these places with attachments of some of my work? ...or better to send a few pictures by post with a letter of introduction?

Dammit, Norm, there you go trying to put your poor little post-partum daughter to work, with your little grandchild still hanging at her breast.
Why, I never....:D

Before I tried to market these.... (And I'm trying to be helpful here, not snarky) I'd get a picture of one where the compass points didn't.....Er...... Fall off the table top..... Just a thought....
Otherwise, nice work!
