Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

Re: Any Albin Nimbus 42 owners out there

OK, got a bunch of steering pictures uploading. Yours must be different, because there's no way mine has room for a full-round quad. There's a longitudinal 'bulkhead' for lack of a better word just...
