Hello fellow boat owners

I've been messing about in boats all my life. Retired eight years ago and took up fulltime RVing. Started big, 35 foot, but now happier in a 19 foot Roadtrek. Very similar to living on a boat. Finally this spring couldn't stand not owning a boat any longer, my last boat being a Tartan 27, so I bought a 1993 Nimble Kodiak, a motor sailor. Haven't put it the water yet, a lot of neglected maintenance to catch up on. Don't know if I'll be happy with her sailing abilities, or lack thereof. Really wanted a Montgomery 23 but rare as hen's teeth. Wanted a boat I could tow behind a 3/4 truck and use as an RV when on land. Also saving on the yard fees for launch and haul out. This is a great forum, especially for someone such as me,engaged as I am on a massive refit of an older boat.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'll post some pictures of the Susan D but be warned, she's odd looking, though I understand from other owners that she will sail better than she looks. This is one of the best forums I've seen, chock full of really knowledgeable boat owners.

Welcome aboard Nick. I've seen a number of Nimbles in my travels, so they must have something going for them
