Any Nimrod Owners?

Just joined the group and am looking forward to getting to know everyone. Purchased a 1969 Westerly Nimrod last week and I'm sure I will have some questions for the group. I hope to provide input to other questions as well.

Any Nimrod owners out there?

Re: Any Nimrod Owners?

No, found the Nimrod on US Craigslist a couple weeks ago (lots of other Nimrods there too )

I've reserached to see why anyone would name a boat Nimrod other than to make sure my friends and insurance agent had a good laugh. Found two: Noah's great grandson from the bible, and name of the first boat to explore the south pole. Anyone know the real story?

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Re: Any Nimrod Owners?

Here's a pic of mine----needs some TLC (and a new starter winder for the outboard---discovered the hard way last Sunday). Otherwise great little boat.
