Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

Re: Chain Plate Replacement

it is not "Cheap" but I love the idea of never having to check it again. I got what equated to a 60"X13" plate that was 10mm thick for 1200$. I think over time that is way worth it. That made 6 chain...

Re: Chain Plate Replacement

I will have to agree with the others here on the dodger front. And this is coming from a guy who's only wish more for his boat would be one. I, like you, like the protection but on the...

Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

Many thanks for taking the time to collect those pics and upload them. I can't tell you how much light that shed on the matter for me. The tabbed in spot for the stops you had tell me mine must...

Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

hmmm... I wonder if mine are "stock" then. They just look kinda out of place. The sheaves are too far forward, so maybe it's the same deal.

I have a full circle quadrant that would not require...

Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

wamcneil,

A description is the next best thing =) I thought I saw some sheaves mounted under the cockpit floor in the diagrams I've seen online. I have no such thing, instead there are large...

Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

From what I have seen of the foam in our boat, it was not quite 3m scrub pad, but more like the green foam block used in flower center pieces. It sure does let water run though.

Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

Something to think about, I guess I always figured the rivers were off limits.

Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there
