Dear Mr. Hanson:

My experience as a tugboat captain goes back five years when I began this work with a tugboat company in Florida. Today I am writing this cover letter to apply for a similar position with Hanson Tugboat Services. When I saw your post on JobBankUSA.com I decided to apply for the job. You may plan to interview several tugboat captains before making your final selection. But I hope you will meet with me in person before doing so, as I look forward to talking with you about my previous employment and my record. I get the job done and I have a knack for building good morale with the tugboat crews I've led.

Please phone me at 345-678-9999 to arrange a get-together that works for your busy schedule if you'd like to pursue this further. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for reading my cover letter and giving it your consideration.
