Nimble / Pictures of various Nimble 20 ...
Last post by Bob_N20 - Jun 24, 2024, 11:49 AM
Hello everyone,

In our former forum there were helpful pictures and ideas for modifying the original pintles & gudgeons on a Nimble 20.

Mine had been updated to a heftier modification by the previous owner 25 years ago. But now the lower gudgeon ring has snapped from the bracket (that is still attached to the stern).

I seem to remember some owners had utilized new gudgeons but don't know which one and were purchased.

Any advice and especially pictures (from today or the old website) are appreciated. I will need to have it re-welded but would like to do so in a stronger manner.

Thanks for the help.

same thing was happening to me.  I was told you had to hit "insert".  I did and then the pics show up twice.  I guess twice is better than not at all..... ;)

TSBB General Talk / Bobbie finally finds a boat
Last post by Timm R Oday25 - Jun 24, 2024, 08:54 AM
Bobbie never spent much time around bigger boats growing up.
She has tolerated me walking docks for the last 9 years .
Finally she says " That's our next boat !" . I guess I better make friends with a broker .
Anybody know how to tell her it's not even for sale ?

As we were dock walking ,we came across this "contraption " . My best guess was some type of dry docking .

My headsail is a 115, I wonder if that makes any difference? Oh, and they make a little blue pill for that other thing ...  ;)

Waited 3 1/2 hours before we were back on the road. Today while on the road a semi driver let us know the port side trailer light was dragging. No real damage to the light, but the license plate is a little worm. I zip tied it on and we made to southern IL this evening.
