I don't think many of them ever made it to the US. Albin never was a major vendor here and the Nimbus was a top-dollar boat. I met one and was trying to figure out how to take it home when I noticed someone had cut out sections of the fiberglass ribs amidship, apparently to help the bilge drain better. Cut out, like with a chain saw.

I said, I don't think so. Anything can be repaired...but I don't need structural repairs and questions like "What kind of bozo cuts apart the ribs on a boat?!" Still, if one followed me home........Nice boat!
