About the Owners (current and former)

Bob Allnutt: Is a lifelong sailor and former Crelock 37 owner. He's sailed to Bermuda and crewed from England to the Azores. In 2005 he bought the LNVT Victory on Seattle's Lake Union. He cruised the San Juan Islands before trucking her east to Port Clinton, OH. From there he cruised up the Niagara River, down the Erie Canal and Hudson Rivers, south into the Atlantic, up the Delaware and into the home waters of the Chesapeake Bay. Before retiring, Bob managed the National Geographic Society’s Photographic and Digital Imaging Laboratory. Where's Victory now? See a YouTube video of Victory underway.

Larry Motschenbacher: Sedna is the Inuit (Eskimo) goddess of the sea and all her creatures. After we named her, a scientist named the new planetary body beyond Pluto, which many call the 10th planet, Sedna. The planet Sedna is said to have a 10,500-year orbit. Larry developed a very nice LNVT Operations and Maintenance (O&M) which is available here as a PDF file.

Last Call: Scuttlebutt has it that Last Call was owned by a Microsoft executive and used mostly as a party boat on Lake Union.
