Winter Tug Dreams
This year is a particularly special year as we both retire April 1st and we are making plans to begin our first extended cruise. In September we start on the loop following the inland waterways. I blame Dave and Bicki for this as they have encouraged us at every gathering we have shared, every email sent and every blog entry they have made during their own cruise. We finally believe there is never any perfect time, there is only now. So, now it shall be.

Meet the Bishops, Highland Mary 37VT18
Kristin and Kenny Bishop
We are both Navy vets who have been sailboat owners since the early 90s. Although we enjoy our Cal 27 sailboat and plan to keep her, we had decided that a trawler would be more suitable for when we do the Great Loop in retirement. In [September 2018] Kenny saw the Craigslist ad for Oneida and noticed that she happened to be located in Stafford, VA, which intrigued us. We inquired further, and discovered that not only was Oneida located in Stafford, but had been berthed at our neighborhood marina for the past 19 years! We are very happy to be her new owners and Kenny is beginning to work on his 5 year improvement plan, to coincide with our planned retirement date. Fortunately for our budget, he is very handy and able to do all the work himself.

Update from Perseverance 37VT32
Last year, the Perseverance underwent more maintenance time than cruising time - the result of 30+ years in a rainforest! The [LNVT Forum] information has been helpful a number of times.
Announcing the Tug Map...
Do you want to know where all the LNVTs are?Well, there's an app for that!
The map pictured above is available by mousing on the Tug Map hot link which is located at the top of the LNVT.org web page. Once you have the map up you can zoom in and get the specific details for each tug. For most tugs the pin is placed at the owners home address. If you'd prefer your tug's pin at her actual location, let me know the address and I'll take care of it.
