"I haven't tried the boarding ladder in/out of the tender, but we did test it from dockside and nobody went swimming. So it passed the first test.

We did notice the crane up, makes sense now. Your testing process cracks me up, "do you get wet or stay dry using the ladder". Good hear all the pieces are coming together.

TT we had our last boat built for us. Thought we knew exactly what we wanted from past experience. Initial commissioning was in Norfolk VA. First passage was to BVI. There started to modify things we could have done better. Took us a full year to get stuff just right and Bristol fashion. Keep your chin up. Commissioning is just your first step. I thought 2-3 months of coastal cruising would be sufficient to work out the kinks before doing the “big stuff” I was wrong.

Not his first rodeo. This is Peter’s second new Nordhavn. He had a new 60 previous. He is also something of an inventor genius engineer but a bit modest about it.

My bad. He probably has forgotten more than I know.

If it’s any consolation, I think his typing skills leave a lot to be desired.

That's been my experience too, and I think it applies to new and used boats alike. I'm expecting a year of use (after commissioning) before things are really solid. We have made lots of progress and fixed lots of things, but I still don't have to look too hard to find something new.

So true, and getting worse over time.
