April Newsletter

- Don’t miss the Anacortes Spring Boat Show coming up next weekend, April 5 – 7. Going to be a fun show and a great time to see Gateway I, Gateway II, and Aristocat all cleaned up and shiny. Bring friends and family and show off your boat!

- Please welcome Pete and Jan van Leynseele to the Gateway owner group! They are the latest proud owners of Gateway I and are really looking forward to this coming boating season. They are very experienced boaters who previously owned a Tollycraft and also currently own a trailerable cuddy-cabin. We are truly lucky to have such a great group of owners and the van Leynseele’s are a great addition. Please welcome them warmly as you see them around!

- Gateway II is on the water and running like a proud stallion (can “she” run like a stallion?)! At any rate, the C100 handles unbelievably well, a real upgrade in performance in many ways; speed, handling, tracking, weight carrying ability, storage space, etc. If you have yet to take her for a spin, let us know a good time and we’ll get you out.

- Gateway III, the new Nordic Tug 34, is under construction in Burlington, WA, and I’m told is right on the timeline for completion and delivery at Trawler Fest (May 16th). The hull is now out of the mold, and major components will be moving this week into the Nordic assembly building for outfitting and joining. If anyone would like to see her under construction, let me know and I can arrange that, she’ll be located right beside the Aspen mock up.
