Thanks Bob . Nordic came in two configurations from what i can tell .one is a deeper keel with 4 inches of lead bolted to the bottom. the other is a drop center board .It has about a 2 foot draft i think .

Is there another boat in the 20 to 25 foot class you would recommend?seems all the work and money involved in a conversion would not be a wise decision .

I have a cat rigged seaward fox 17 now .But too small for the longer trips .

Thanks again Richard

Not familiar with any easy conversions of sailboats but have seen some custom pilot houses completed on 25ft hulls with the swing keels due to their relative shallow draft.

Another nice cruising hull boat I had some experience is the Albin 25. A couple of years ago there were several that we were interested in at a reasonable price but the Vagabond was a steal so we purchased it. The Albin is a nice inboard diesel and older so a fixer uppers are available.

Good Luck!
