Dock Talks

Who is the smartest person you know? Another Nordic Tug owner? You? Of course we are smart, we bought the best boats around. So, when it comes to learning about these boats or cruising in general, we believe some of the best people to learn from are other owners. That is why the PaNNTOA Rendezvous this year will include “Dock Talks”, an opportunity to get detailed information about a particular topic from another owner. And this is where you come in. We are looking for suggestions for topics you are interested in as well as volunteers to speak to a smallish group. So, if you have something nifty you would like to share or something you would like to learn about, please send an email to Paul at

Honoring Ray Carpenter

Dear PaNNTOA Members,

We have been asked to share with you the sad news of the passing of Ray Carpenter, long-time Harbormaster at Kingston Marina. Some of you enjoyed the Mini-Vous at Kingston that Gerry & Barb (Spree) hosted at Kingston a little over a year ago. Ray not only ran the marina but he was always a welcoming host for us Puget Sound boaters – matching his welcoming words with hands-on help for visiting boaters. That was certainly true of our PaNNTOA Mini-Vous.

Ray has just passed away after a tough battle with brain cancer. As you can imagine, his wife, Maria, is coping with a pile of medical expenses.

We are including a link to a GoFundMe page so that you all have an opportunity to help the family if you so wish. For the Kingston boaters, Ray will be greatly missed.
