N3 Update - 11/13/13

Well today was less hectic then yesterday with only one document to sign and fax. Just received confirmation from Jeff that everything is in place for the banks to work their magic tomorrow allowing us to pick up the boat Friday at 0900hrs. Fingers crossed.

Spoke with Alcom Marine today who outfitted our tow N40's and discussed a few items we will want to add to this boat. The big hitter will be Satcom ($5K) so Mary can watch TV when we are out cruising or spending the night at Catalina Island. There is something special about being on the hook and watching the Super Bowl of World Series. Looking forward to these days.

The waiting game is the worst part! We are on hold until the 25th. Very envious of your Satcom, well and the Nordy too!

There sure is! I often tell my wife that I'm going to the boat to do a couple of small projects. This is normally on Sunday morning when both Fox & CBS are broadcasting the NFL games.

N3 Window Shads

I accidently did not upload the pictures of the new shades (and leather seating) with my last post. I think I did it correctly this time if we click on the attachment (paperclip) link above. We went with an Oyster White on both to provide a light clean look like we had on our first N40. The lighter colors also go great with the teak wood and make the room feel larger. We used the same color on all the shades throughout the boat. Looking forward to waking up aboard and walking upstairs to the salon for a cup of coffee and NOT being blinded by the sun.

Man, that's really nice, but you must have more confidence than I do to keep 'em clean and salt free.

N3 Checking on the boat

Yesterday was a day to leave work a little early during lunch time and drive 15 miles to the boat for a quick check. While others may feel comfortable leaving their boats for extended periods I sleep better knowing I checked on the boat every few days. This trip also included my first look at the new window shades (look great) and see the carpet left by the installer for the engine room. When we purchased N3522 the owner had custom fit carpet between the stringers on the starboard side of the engine room. A very nice touch. After nine years it was time to replace them so I had our interior guy make us new pieces. Light gray and white will look great.

I also had the mechanic down late last week to fix the tach. that stopped working and repair a leaking valve in the engine room. At this point I believe we have all the major items on our list complete and ready to start using the boat. So far so good.

Peter, I will admit that I would never had thought about such an idea since our previous boats had beautiful clean engine room floors with molded in areas to step and work. This boat only offer transvers stringers on top on the hull creating little box areas. The carpet adds a non slip surface and a nice touch. The light gray and white color brightens things up. If you want to see a picture let mw know.

Amazziiing, most women think God put man here to wait on them and to do as she commands and your telling us you have a system like apis melifera< honey bees>. In a bee world if the word worker is used it refers to females exclusively the guy's have no chores work nothing except relax and go to a drone yard. A drone yard is where a guy goes to talk to the boys and wait for girls in need of their services. Kinda like a brew pup. Then after a hard day at the drone yard they return to the hive to be waited on by the worker bees which are also maids construction workers doctors nurses etc. and all female.
I think you should start teaching classes so the rest of us can learn how to get human females to act like bees so we can enjoy the life we were meant to live.
As for the door issue all boats are a compromise as none is perfect except ones built by her.

Thanks John. Can you expand a bit on why you chose to go with an Llc? And did your banker and insurer accept this?

Eric I believe you misunderstand. This thread is not about the third boat built by Nordhavn, it is the third Nordhavn this OP has owned and the first one he purchased used.
