Guest Interview Christopher and Diana Dent – Colibri N50 So, Chris, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far? A bit of background:  Diana grew up in southern Russia (though I tease her that there is no such place as southern Russia) and later eastern Ukraine (now, sadly, a war zone) and was an avid boater and fisherman with her sister and parents, who owned a small motor boat – something almost unheard of in Soviet times. Diana’s family would spen...

So, Kevin and Alison, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far? We are fairly new to the Nordhavn community, having just purchased our boat in June, 2016.  We brought her up the coast from San Diego to Seattle, which was our first blue water trip with overnight passages. Since bringing Red Rover home we’ve been pretty focused on a series of projects and improvements which has limited our time out to short trips to the San Juan Islands and harbors ar...

So, Bob tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far? During my junior high school years in the Pacific Northwest (shortly after dinosaurs roamed the earth), I was introduced to cruising, navigation and single screw boat handling by my best friend who invited me to go cruising with him and his folks in their beautifully home built 32’ Monk Sr. design boat. Those are still some of my fondest memories, cruising everywhere in the Puget Sound with only pap...

So, David, tell us a little something about you and how you came to work for ABT-TRAC? I was born and raised in the boating industry. After selling the family business I took a year off to play and try to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. This was an exciting yet very challenging year. It seems though that once you are a “Boat Guy” you are ALWAYS a boat guy.  So one day I came across an add from a company looking for a service tech.  They were looking for someone with a very specifi...

So, Dale, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far? I grew up on the water in Victoria, BC and have been in love with boating since I can remember. Our family’s cruising started 20+ years ago with a 22’ seasport and as our family grew so did our boat. To date, we have cruised Prince William Sound, around the San Juan Islands and the west coast of Vancouver Island. Our family LOVES the ocean and we are dedicated boaters. We live in the middle of Alas...
