Innocent yet absolutely brilliant. Never offensive but not politically correct (I detest acting different to achieve that PC status).

If you start a fan club; let me know. I'll send down some posters and a T shirt or something.

FTR I like all three of them but admit a particular liking for Thomsen. We could really derail this thread by questioning the fact that a hat is present in all 4 of your avatar choices(counting the short lived Thurston).

Ding, ding, ding. Give this man an ... apple!

The first Nordic Tug was called Red Apple. The original owner dove by the NT yard, saw Red Apple out front and promptly ordered a boat. He called it Northern Spy as a bit of a double entendre as it was the first Nordic Tug in Canada and he was an exploratory geologist in Northern BC.

The next two owners kept her name and so did I.

I love the name! The apple Northern Spy is from the same county in NY I am originally from, my maternal side of the family have been apple farmers for generations, and people don`t know me well think it has something to do with my American living in Canada or submariner background.

I have this botanical print on board.
