Nordhavn 60#82 arrived in Fort Lauderdale today from South Coast. Members of the Nordhavn Southeast Commissioning team arrived to oversee the offload and are currently bringing her back to North Palm Beach to begin commissioning.
Kevin and Alison Jeffries (and boat dog Max) steamed up the east coast aboard their Nordhavn 55 Red Rover earlier this week and arrived at Nordhavn’s Northeast office in East Greenwich, RI yesterday. In doing so, they crossed the 25,000 mile threshold of miles traveled on Red Rover. This morning they stopped by the office to take ownership of their 25,000 nm pennant from Northeast Sales manager & Nordhavn Director of Marketing, Jenny Stern. The 25,000 nm pennant fit the new flagstaff, which has gone burgee-free since their 20,000 nm flag flew the coop courtesy of a gale wind faced off the coast of Mexico a couple months ago. (The Jeffries were given a brand spanking new 20,000 nm replacement pennant to keep their completed collection intact.)
Keeping Cool on the N40 Spirit Wolf
While many in North America are experiencing scorching temps at the moment, Bernard Cyr and Monique Nobert had to bundle up on the cockpit of their N40 Spirit Wolf as they reeled in dinner earlier this week. Anchored in Lake Superior off of Michipicoten Island in Ontario, Bernard said the air and water temps were identical: a cool 39.2 degrees! Less than ideal for snorkeling, but excellent for fishing with Monique catching a couple of trout and Bernard landing a nice salmon. “Besides,” joked Bernard, “Spirit Wolf is equipped with a Hurricane heating system. We’ll keep warm this summer.”
