After five glorious years of adventures on Onward in the Pacific Northwest,
we have sold her to a couple from Everett, WA,
who have changed her name to Cowabunga.
May she and they have as much fun as we have had!

Our 40' Nordhavn trawler-yacht

Resting at a dock in Crescent City, CA on her maiden voyage up the Pacific Coast.
Under the red canvas is the inflatable dinghy, named Homeward.
Made fast above the pilot house are two kayaks, named Inward & Outward.
(A friend told us we should name the life raft "Afterward"!)
Also aboard are two folding bikes and a scooter.

But to start at the beginning:

Fiberglass mold for the Nordhavn 40's at the Fullerton, CA boat-building plant

Ray Danet was our Nordhavn staffer, peerless guide & extremely knowledgeable "old salt".
He & Tom stand by the unfinished Onward, indicating where straps should be placed when hoisting out of the water.

Naming was important. Mike Howell painted names for us: Onward, Homeward, Inward, Outward.
