**bumping an old thread **

What's the deal with the newer Nimble 29? They look pretty neat. Any 29ers on here?

I have not seen one yet on the water other than the first hull. There were some folks on here trying to sell their interest in one. They apparently contracted to have one built but wanted out.
Curious to know myself if any were made and are on the water.

Well, the repower of Sweet Pea was finally completed after Hurricane Irma roared through our island. She rode it out on a trailer at the boat yard awaiting the correct pitch prop.
I reluctantly repowered my trusty 26 yr old Honda 45hp with a 50hp Suzuki Hi-Thrust. The yard really didn't know what prop to use but called PowerTech and they knew the boat and just what it needed.(14x7).
Have 5 hours on it sofar and very pleased. The power band is similar but I an running around 7 mph vs 6mph with the Honda at the same RPM. I decided on the Suzuki because of a very close dealer and a 6 yr warranty!
Loading the boat now for a 3 day trip up to South Seas Plantation for a songwriters festival. As usual we wil be the smallest boat there

Nimble does have a 29 outboard trailerable trawler.

Currently finishing the molds with 2 hulls done.

So they are in business and moving.

The lines are different now, roof is flat.

I do not work or have any financial relationship with them but I am a buyer of one.

Congrats on your repower, Nimble. Any pics?

NimblePlanner: That's great . Definitely a cool boat.

New Suzuki 50 High Thrust. The power head is about the same size of the old Honda but the lower unit and prop is much larger. Suzuki info says the lower unit is adapted from a 140hp motor! All I know is that it works very well.
Including pic of old motor for comparison.
