Ahoy

I appreciate being added as a member. After retiring to the PNW a few years ago we tried sailing for a couple of years with a Catalina 30 and decided that wasn't working for us so we are now looking for a Nordic Tug. I appreciate all of the sharing of information on the forum and hope to contribute as well.

Bob

I appreciate all of the welcoming comments. As it stands we have a contract on a 2000 NT32. I'm trying not to get too excited as we had a contract on another NT32 earlier this year but fell through as the seller decided against a NT37 he planned on buying. So far this deal is looking good pending a survey on Wednesday. The tug is very clean with good maintenance records and I believe the owners took pride in keeping it in top shape which is the type of boat I've been searching for. Keeping my fingers crossed...
