[Sentoa] Chartering a Nordic Tug-37 for Cruising

Have you thought of something more adventurous like cruising a week through
the waterways of the Tongass National Forest Southeast Alaska? Nordic Tugs
of Alaska in Juneau bare bones charters 32s & 37s and the cruising here is
spectacular and not too rough on the Inside Passage. When you're in
Anacortes it would be worth your while to stop by SkipperCress and look up
Greg Mustari (greg at skippercress.com 360 507 9999). Greg was and continues to
be an invaluable (and for me indispensable) resource in getting me started
not only in NT's but my first boat ever

Subject: [Sentoa] Chartering a Nordic Tug-37 for Cruising

My wife and I are thinking about becoming Nordic Tug 37 owners.  While a
majority of our experience has been on sailboats we have been on both a
NT-32 and NT-37 for brief day trips and love the boat however we would like
to actually spend a week living and cruising on a NT-37 before proceeding to
purchase one. 

We are located on the east coast in the Boston area and since our daughter
currently lives in Seattle.  One option we have been considering is
chartering an NT-37 through Anacortes Yacht Charters in Washington State so
we can cruise the San Juan Island area.

With this background in mind I wanted to pose a few questions to seek advice
from you more experience folks:

    -	Are there also companies on the east coast (e.g. Northeast) that
also charter NT-37s?

    -	Does any one have experience with Anacortes Yacht Charters that 
            they might be willing to share?

    -	When chartering a NT-37 - any tips or advice that folks might be
willing to share?

    -	Any good cruising guide recommendations for the San Juan Island
area in 
            Washington state?

Thanks in advance for any information you can share..

	Pete & Sue
