Nimble Wanderer Osprey

My new (to me) Nimble Wanderer, Osprey, is still stuck in Florida waiting for the trucker to get his truck fixed. I got the trailer refurbished and Osprey has been loaded on the trailer since 3/24/2017, but the selected transported is having truck problems. So there she sits. So now that I have a little more free time, I thought I'd post some pictures of Osprey.

What a great boat - everything you need, all very functional. What are your plans again? Florida to California?

Awesome boat. IMHO the best of both worlds.

Be careful with her in the canyon.

Awesome potential for a Pacific/Atlantic/Arctic/lake/river cruising rig...how much fuel does your boat carry?

Thanks. She is currently on the trailer in Florida waiting for a truck to get repaired and tow her to California.

Thanks. Osprey won't get towed into our Canyon. We have narrow roads and low overhang.

Osprey carries 72 gallons of fuel. Theoretical range with 20% reserve at 7 knots should be 450 NMi, at 8 knots 350 NMi, 9 knots 280 NMi, and at 10 knots 225 NMi.

Is it still in Florida? What part, I am in Tampa? Need pics of current condition or anything if in my area?

Good luck and great looking boat.

My 1995 Wanderer, Jack B, has averaged 20 gallons of fuel for 100 nm traveled cruising at 7 knots on 2 recent trips. That includes fuel consumed by the Wallas stove maybe 1 gallon each trip.

Nimble wanderer

So, the wanderer is trailerable,not trailer launchable? I live in key West on a c t 34 trawler, had nimble 24 when I got here. I wonder how many wanderers were built?

What a wonderful boat you’ve got there Portager.
I have a relative who has a Nimble Nomad w a 45hp OB. He lives aboard ... actually.
I especially like your little dinette. Want to convert our boat’s L setee to the dinette but ... so many projects.
I think your truck is worth more money than our boat.
I’m starting to pay spring attention to Willy now and have at least a dozen projects like change oil and coolant on the engine and other “get-er-ready” type jobs.
How big is your Yanmar and prop?

the wanderer "can be" trailer launched but you need a pad that can get your trailer down 2'10" at least and most have an abrupt drop off so you can loose your trailer.
