Tahoma, R-27 -- Friday - Monday, 8/16-19,/2013 -- Days 98-101

During a nice, quiet time of day I hear a familiar, wonderful sound.  I know that sound -- who is it?

It is a blue 27 foot Ranger Tug turning into the slip next to Willie's Tug in Cap Sante Marina.  

Then I hear a familiar voice, and it is Kenny from the Ranger Tug factory, delivering Tahoma to Bill Pike, the new owner.

We are excited to welcome another R-27 on K-Dock, but decide we should rename the dock to Tug Dock.  

With Restless (Richard and Claire), Nudibranch (Ray, Jocelyn and Brenna), and Willie's Tug (Herb and Willie) on K-Dock, we think Tug Dock is good to include friends on the Nordic Tug, Wood Duck in a nearby slip. 

After Bill gets to know the boat a bit, he joins a group of friends at Village Pizza for dinner.

Much of the conversation is about boat stuff.

We learn from Bill that his boat name, Tahoma, represents the Native American name for Mt. Rainier and the Orca whale.  
Welcome, Bill!
