Pictures of your boat

Aussie Trekker,

I would be interested in pictures of both your hardtop as well as the stern rail installation. I have owned a NI33 (built in 1982/1983) in Southern California since the late 1990's. You can reach me at "glenndimit" at "gmail" dot "com".

I wish you best of luck with your ventures!

Mine was built in Australia by Commdore Yachts and was built to the USL Code (as it was back in the 1980's). After its current rest on the hardstand she'll be heading around the top end of Australia and back around crossing to some of the closer Pacific Islands. I have made many changes to her - some noticable some not - she now has a hardtop over the cockpit and full covers, a full stern rail system carries davits, radar, wind generator, HF ant, BBQ, solar panels and instruments. If anyone would like photos or info let me know.
ps - she carries the name "Aussie Trekker"
I own a Nantuckett 33 and i'm thinking about doing a total rebuild.
Mine is build in Taiwan in 1980 and still has the original teakdeck. I'm very interested in photos of the hardtop and the stern rail system.

I too would be interested in improvements that your have made. In this area, an ocean going dodger can get expensive, hard top would be an interesting alternative. Photos of your project would be a big plus for me.

Starry Night Hello Nantucket 33 owner "Aussie Trekker"
Would be interested in seeing photos of "Aussie Trekker", as I'm planning some similar changes to our boat. Photos of the cockpit hardtop, and dingy davits would be of particular interest. "Pisces Two", was I believe is an early model of the design, with teak decks, flush rear deck, and only three portlights per side. It was Taiwanese built by Ho-Shing, and shipped to England to be shown at the 1981 London boat show. it's really been around, and shows it in some respects, but is well worth the time and energy I'm putting into her. It's good to hear from other owners, as there are so few of them around, at least in eastern North America. Our email is . Thanks for whatever information and photos you can provide.

candon I bought an 86 Nan 38 several years ago and currently in the process of getting her ready for longer voyagers. There were several items that I wished I had known about about before purchase-only to include them in the final bid. Poor quality stainless, crack alum steering quadrant, leaky scuppers, inferior wiring, and other minor and major annoyances. Otherwise good sailing and liveaboard boat. carl
