Northwest Electric Boat Rentals - The Crew
Northwest Electric Boat Rentals is owned by a long time Bainbridge Island raised Sea Captain. Yes, born in the Winslow clinic in 1959. He protects our shorelines from oil spills from Seattle to Canada. Electric boats are his hobby and passion this enables Captain Arch to be closer to his two loves: His family and the sea.
For over a century Captain Arch's family has earned a living on the coastal waters. Capt Arch is often seen in the papers rescuing ships off the coast on the State funded rescue tug. While there might be some Scandinavian relations in the family by now, seasoned Poulsbo locals suspect this tall, dark and handsome is a Norwegian poser. (Capt Arch never told us he was Norwegian, but he lives in Poulsbo so by default we wonder,) what tips us off is that Captain Arch has strict rules about no fishing or lutefisk allowed on his classic boats.
Okay, he’s flexible about lutefisk. As such, local residents and business now support Northwest Boat Rentals wholeheartedly.
Generations of fishing and boating experience runs through his veins. That earns him the right to be a bit proud perhaps, as evident by the names of the two new vessels.
Paradise in Poulsbo:
Captain Arch identifies with both. As great Sea Stories go, One stormy windy night there I was, with the wind in my face... Captain Arch is full of them. We rely upon our master storyteller to keep everyone in the know. Not only does he know the scuttlebutt around town, a good deal of what he relays to us is about (who would guess) Captain Arch himself.
With the persistence of love and joy the presence of Northwest Boat Rentals brings a smile to her face. Since 2006, when we opened, she’s worked harder then any employee we’ve ever had. She can navigate and dock the Duffy’s like a seasoned pro; after all she has been driving them since she was only 8 years old!
