Congrats she looks beautiful.

The landlocked factory isn't such a surprise - it's probably way cheaper than the waterfront or near waterfront. Many of the Puget Sound builders are a ways away from the water for that reason.

I hope Nordhavn can put a big red bow on it for you on arrival. That's a heck of a Christmas present.

Ha, me too :-) I last saw it almost exactly a year ago, with all subsequent visits cancelled because of Covid.

Well, it has changed quite a bit. Our plan from the start was to commission and take delivery in Florida, breakdown for a year along the eastern seaboard between Canada and the Bahamas, then head over to Europe.


But our assumption about boarder closings over the next year is that you can't assume, and we don't want to be confined to the Eastern US. We prefer more wilderness cruising.


Thankfully I structured our contract to allow commissioning at any of Nordhavn's locations, so we switched to Seattle. Here, even with the Canadian boarder closed to recreational traffic, we can pop up to Alaska and have all the wilderness our hearts desire. So we will be in the PNW until boarders reliably re-open around the world. At that point, we will come up with a new plan. Northern Europe is still high on the list, and we are kicking around the idea of doing the Northwest passage to get there. But that's a long shot for many reasons.

I just checked and the ship has left Xiamen and is on its way to Kaohsiung, TW to pick up our boat. I'm getting very excited... The ship is the BBC Ruby.

Great fun. Wonderful to have that kind of range. So when Alaska is played out are you intending to do the Panama Canal, islands then azores or down the Coast then South Pacific to start doing the clock?

Yes, in conjunction with PAE, and various 3rd party contractors. It takes a village.

In response to all your questions; Yes, No, Maybe. We have no need to circumnavigate, specifically. Just places we would like to visit, and some we aren't very interested in. I would love to do the NW Passage, but don't know if that will ever be a realistic option for us. Some people cruise to see the people of the world, and others cruise to see the natural world. We are primarily interested in the natural world.

Congratulations, Peter!! I bet you're as excited as an expectant parent! It's been a looong gestation! Fortunately, she will make one heckuva Christmas gift!

I hope it's everything you've dreamed and meticulously planned it to be. Can you share the transporting ship's name for those watching Marinetraffic?

Thanks.

It's shipping on the BBC Ruby.


I also just noticed that the configuration of BBC Ruby is a bit unique. The wheelhouse and accommodations are forward, not aft. I've seen that on some work boats and crew boats, but it seems unique on a freighter.

Indeed, an interesting ship.

I will try to get a photo as she passes Port Angeles to embark the pilot.

Youíre right, the configuration is different. Hereís a the BBC Ruby picking up a new Krogen before heading to Everett. It does appear they do a good job securing the boats to the deck.

Nice. Ours is now loaded and the ship is en route to Taipei for it's last stop before crossing to Everett. They are running 1-2 days late, so my best guess for unload is Dec 20 or more likely Dec 21.

Hey Peter:

Congrats on your new Tanglewood! Seems like yesterday we were chatting about your new build......but that was the 2017 FUBAR. Nice to have it loaded and on the way.

Hope to see Tanglewood in Alaska this summer.
