Dear Nordic Tug Owners,

I received an email a few minutes ago from Andy Lund, former President  
and CEO of Nordic Tugs, announcing that he will be leaving Nordic Tugs  
on October 1, 2010.  Since the plant temporarily closed, Andy has been  
working to assemble a group of investors to purchase the operating  
assets of Nordic Tugs.  In early September he made a proposal to the  
controlling shareholder of the company.  Apparently, there was also an  
offer from another party. I understand that both offers were  
declined.  Andy states that the controlling shareholder has indicated  
that he would like to re-open the Nordic Tugs plant and start building  
boats again some time over the next year.  Andy remains interested in  
purchasing the operating assets, however, to avoid any potential  
conflict of interest, he is leaving the company.

I'm sure you all join me in thanking Andy for the leadership that he  
has provided since the unfortunate accident that took the life of Jim  
Cress.  Like all of us, Andy remains hopeful that at some time in the  
future Nordic Tugs will again prosper by building and selling the  
great boats it has been known for over the past 30 years and that he  
will again be involved.

Several employees remain working for Nordic Tugs, including Bob Shamek  
who I know is ready and willing to assist owners. Bob can be reached  
via email at bobs at nordictug.com.
