Well, that's good to hear. I know they've been weathering some tough times but I'm glad they hung in there. I don't know much about NTs other than being on a few at the dock and knowing a couple of people who have them. But they have a great reputation and their boat models seem ideally suited for cruising these waters, by which I mean from Puget Sound on up the coast through BC into SE Alaska.
From the purely business side, it's great when a local company does well. While I've forgotten the number, they say that every Boeing job creates quite a few more other jobs in the region, from restaurant workers to car dealers to house builders. The same is true of Microsoft and Amazon. While Nordic Tug is on a smaller scale, their employees nevertheless help enhance the local economy, and that's always good.
