Great Ideas


The inspiration for this website was born during our first rendezvous in 2001. As we visited each other's boats, we were excited to see a range of custom improvements. To make it easier to share our ideas, we exchanged email addresses. Before long, we posted our write-ups with photos on our fledgling website. Just one year later many of us had added new magazine racks, magnets to hold the head door open, water filters, and more.

As each year has passed, the list has grown, and tug owners from around the country have contributed their ideas. Even the factory has taken note and made some of our ideas permanent items on the new boats.

(Webmaster's Note: While the NENTOA website devotes space for Great Ideas, the SENTOA website devotes space for Maintenance Tips. Visitors are encouraged to check both websites for a complete selection of projects.)
