Could be a bargain or a nightmare--in a barn, no sea trial, as is. Maybe this one will be a pot of gold for some lucky buyer, snug and dry with no surprises and a winning lottery ticket too.[vbg]
I fell in love with a Nimbus in CT some years ago, then discovered the PO had literally taken a chain saw and "improved" the bilge drainage by cutting six inches out of the middle of some the ribs. The broker kept saying "No, really, that can be fixed" and I just said I didn't want to know about it. Idiots with chain saws are something I'm just allergic to. And brokers who figure the buyer just might not notice that kind of thing?!
The reviews and comments I'd seen all said the same thing: Top quality boat, top quality builder, the only thing you could hold against it was the "north sea" type design, i.e. not really well vented for the tropics.
