An Endorsement (of Clock Work)

I've mentioned several times that there's a clear fraction of individuals who respond to this site with whom I sincerely enjoy communicating somewhat regularly, even if they and Clock Work don't turn out to be a match. I was very fortunate to just to receive an endorsement from a member of that group, so here it is. In another blog entry, I do have two other endorsements that are strictly about my "standard of care", but this one is mostly about the boat so I'll put it here. Again, please excuse that I have anonymized the note to protect his privacy and mine since this is, you know, the internet. As before, a signed copy would be made available to any serious parties.

My background, I grew up on Cape Cod spending my youth sailing my sunfish in Nantucket Sound. My love of the ocean and boats led to my graduation from Massachusetts Maritime Academy where I earned my U.S.C.G. Third Mates License Unlimited Tonnage.

Approaching retirement after 37 years as a computer programmer, I became very interested in Nordic Tugs as a potential boat for cruising the inland waters of the northeast and beyond.

I first met M----- while cruising the internet looking for a NT37. M----- and I exchanged a handful of emails regarding the differences between Clock Work and the NT37. It was through these emails that I learned M----- was a very knowledgeable and detailed hands on person. If I bought a used a boat, I would want the previous owner to be someone with the same traits as M-----.

Even though M----- knew I was not quite ready to purchase a boat, M----- graciously invited me to tour CW. I knew CW had spent some extended time on the hard, so I was prepared to see some evidence of this. During my tour of CW, it became very apparent that she was not lacking any attention. I saw no evidence of any neglect, and I was very impressed with the overall condition of Clock Work. The condition of CW indicated the vessel had been well loved and cared for.

If I was currently in the market for an NT42, CW would certainly be on top of my list to pursue further.

In my conversations about Clock Work with interested parties, I've noticed that sometimes I slip into perspectives on systems that simply...
