Harvey & Nancy Halvorsen

My wife Renee & I had the honor of hosting Harvey & Nancy Halvorsen at our home today. We talked, had lunch on the Bay & toured SeaHorse II. To sit face to face with Harvey while he recounted the Halvorsen story was quite a treat. We agreed to do it again.

Wow!! That's a very special opportunity to enjoy the company of your boat's builder for an afternoon and a cruise. Glad to see he's feeling better and was up to a trip around your bay.

Too bad the weather was so crappy!

My boat is my ark. It's my mobile treehouse and my floating fishing cabin. It's my retreat and my respite. Everyday I thank God I have a boat! -Al

It would be a wonderful story to hear direct. Trygve Halvorsen`s death, well into his 90s, was reported here recently. The timber cruisers are a living monument to the family and their traditions. It is amazing that boats which served for 30 years or so in a now disbanded charter fleet, are so treasured by owners. The Halvorsens have good reason to be proud.
