Seems to me the name Northern Marine comes with a lot of baggage, a lot of that, accurate or not, is negative. I guess I wonder why a new company with new owners would want the name? I'd think you'd get tired of explaining that your weren't the NM that built Baaden or any of the other earlier catastrophes.

Bud no longer owns the name. North Ocean Yachts owns the name.

When I mentioned heyday, I was referring to the peak of the trawler production, 1995 through 2005.

I read the reports that were public but living on the opposite end of the continent, I had no first hand knowledge. I did wonder why someone would try to revive Northern Marine after such a public image problem. It did look good from the outside, hulls fair and quality of workmanship seemed good. But I didn't go aboard.
I wish you had come aboard. You could have talked to one of the marine architects that participated in the review of Baden. I would also like to point out that Baden was not a Northern Marine design. An outside marine architect redesigned an existing hull, extended it, added another deck and converted it to a yacht design vs the traditional trawler/expedition design. The new Northern Marine is staying with trawlers and expeditions, for which Northern Marine has a great reputation.
