Hello from Prosser, WA

Hello all,

We completed an apparently successful survey and sea trial on a Nordic Tug 26 today so I'm willing to come out of the shadows and say hello. I'm a private pilot and Hells Canyon jet boater making the transition to cruiser. We're looking forward to learning and exploring the waters of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Thanks for the helpful advice y'all didn't know you gave!

Kevin Corliss & Mary Reimers

Welcome!

We have at least one other NT26 owner here. When you can post some pictures.

Kevin and Mary, welcome to TF from another eastern WA boater. Hell's Canyon boater, eh? What a great run it is up to the dam.


Yup, we all like to see pics of people using their boats.

I'm sure you will enjoy your 26! We've had our older 32 for 8 years and just circumnavigated Vancouver Island in it this summer. It was spectacular. And nothing broke. Check out the PNW owners group at Pacific Northwest Nordic Tug Owners Association. They have an annual Rendezvous in Anacortes in early June. Lots of good people and stuff to learn.

Well, we're finally closed, so I feel like it is ok to (attempt to) post a photo. Let the journey begin! There is a fair amount of work to do, but a lot of fun to be had.

Welcome we to have a Nordic 26 which we really love. We have made two trips to Florida and the Keys from Rock Hall MD which we really loved. We are planning to take her next year to Prince Rupert and then explore the Alaska coast.

She is on a Calkins gooseneck trailer so I intend to keep her in a yard in Anacortes until mid-late October then home to E-WA for winter where I can work on all of the “details”. Probably will seek some kind of dry storage over on west side for next season, slinging in for the days we can get away to play.

Welcome

Kevin-

For dry storage here on the west side you might consider North Harbor Diesel in Anacortes.

Welcome! Looks like an older 26. Out if curiosity, what is the HIN? I ask because our NT26 is hull 28. I have a suspicion that hull 27 or 29 is mint green. Because I found some mint green gelcoat on our hull bottom when I scraped off all of the bottom paint years ago...

Cute! If it had walk-around decks and covered side decks I could be tricked into getting one. Welcome!

The HIN ends in 184 so I suspect that is the year. The only other digits are 86.

That means it is (likely) hull 86 built in January of 1984.
