Hi. Iím Gale and just joined. I boat with my husband on the Chesapeake Bay. I was introduced to boating in my 20ís and then was away from it for 30 years. Got back into it with an express cruiser about 9 years ago and canít imagine how I stayed away from boats or the bay for so long. I spend every available moment I have on the boat. Moved to a Nordic Tug last year. Canít wait for extended trips in retirement, probably starting this year. After zero experience Iíve been learning how to do the boat maintenance myself and love doing it. Boaters are a knowledgeable and supportive group of people and Iíve been appreciative of their willingness to help new boaters. Iím looking forward to being a part of your group.

Welcome Gale.

What size Tug?

And what's the story behind the boat name?

Wifey B: Welcome here, Gail. Learn all that appeals to you. Never stray away from boating again.

Oh.....I like the boat name but it sure gives me dirty thoughts. Of course most things do.

My tug is a Nordic 32. The Fringe Benefits name comes from the company I own. I work with contractors that do public work projects and manage their fringe benefits required on these projects. Although that sounds boring compared to whatever you were thinking it meant!

Wifey B: Well, I'm still a kid and can't help but giggling every time I see "fringe benefits" on our financial statements. Even have to be careful when hiring and explaining the fringe benefits.

Hi Gale,
Welcome to the forum from a fellow Nordic Tug owner (at least for now, ours is for sale now - sad). Enjoy the learning. It is fun as well as the cruising.
