  5. Wanted to buy, Nacra 16 sq. Happy if it is an older boat if in fair condition. Budget is not huge, sorry. I am in Northern inland NSW and willing to travel (e.g., Brisbane, Sydney ACT, etc ) to inspect.
  6. Hi folks, I am looking to buy a Nacra 16 square catamaran in fair condition, but on the lower end of budget spectrum. I am in Northern NSW but open to all options re location at this point. Let me know what you have please. John
  7. Looking for a blue getaway jib
  8. Hey folks, I have found exactly one vendor having rudder blades for Nacra 5.0's/5.7's in stock: https://bnrwatersport.com/parts-categorized/rudders-blades/nacra-5-0-5-7-rudder-blade-detail.html Is there anything I am missing. Can you guys help me out? I'd also be interested in used rudder blades that still do the job. Br from Germany!
  9. Both cat rigged, race ready and proven, reg trlr, sail box and beach wheels with each. Unreg double trlr available (Has been reg) You will not find better boats for these prices, replacement value $15k ea. Darcy 0243591729.
  10. I'm chasing a carbon fibre A class mast. Ideally N NSW or SE QLD.
  11. Anyone else have the long term aim (2-3 years time) of buying a new fast car in Europe and sailing back to Aus over a few years, sharing costs and ocean passages?
  12. Your set up looks fine by the way I have removed the vangs on our boats on the advice of the serious sailors from a nearby club; they only have one bloke who still uses his.
  13. Thanks for clearing that up Mav. Cheers, Brad.
  14. You're right - they are for forestay tensioners. The jib sheet cleats, if fitted, are about halfway between the mast and the outer edge of the trampoline frame.
  15. Hi Mav, Any chance you could tell me what the line I've highlighted from your pic is for? Mine also has these fittings either side of the tramp frame, I was thinking either jib sheet lines or forestay tensioners but I haven't really a clue as to what they are for. TIA Brad.
  16. Okay, here is what I've put together in the back yard, bear in mind I am a complete beginner and don't know most of the terminology. Not sure how correctly it is set up, please offer advice where corrections are required. Measurements for Christina are as below, I haven't got rudder/tiller system mounted so as to keep it off the ground and not have any weight on them. As Mav says there isn't any tiller extension, but I will probably make one to suit. Mast = 6100mm Forestays = 4475mm (overall wire length) Backstays = 4350mm (overall wire length) Lanyard wire = 540
  17. I can dig ours out at some stage and measure things if that would help. I haven't had any response from Brett at Windrush for some months - I'm not sure if there is something wrong. Our tillers don't have extensions. We put two kids on when there is a job rigged.
  18. Hi Christina, I've just picked one of these up last week, and am in the process of setting it up as well as giving it some well overdue attention/repairs. I also am struggling with getting information in relation to the set up, and parts availability. I will get some of the measurements you are asking for as I go about the task of setup shortly, as well as some photos. At the moment I'm trying to rebuild the mast head pulley arrangement as it is completely worn out and seized. Cheers, Brad.
  19. I bought the modified one from Geelong about 3 years ago. It is 3.7m wide,, has a small transom extension and plumbed bows. The mast is a bit over 10m and has a slight square top main. It has a 16 ft skiff kite like a couple of others and I have a multi specific flatter kite as well now. I have added an old spinnaker pole as a cross beam to sheet an Etchell jib to. It is perfect for on Moreton bay. We have done an offshore event off the Gold Coast 2 up and my 10 year old son and I have done a 2-handed race. With the spinnaker snuffer it is very easy to handle.
  20. Forgot to add some images to go with it. It's one of the old seamach boat's as seen by the marking on the hull.
  21. Hi, I was wondering whether anyone still has an original setup for pulling the rudders up or down? Was after a picture of how the original system works as I've got a second hand Mari where the rudder system has slipped off, as well as being incorrect in the first place. Hope that makes sense. Thanks
  22. Hello to all I will soon be living on the Maroochy River heading into my retirement and have decided that sailing will be my past time as I can have a toy parked right out front. Now My sailing experience consists of cruising and wild weather sailing on a large Trimaran and a 12m yacht (which was a hoot but who has that sort of spare coin for toys) a bit of wind surfing all 28 years ago and recently a crack at kiting so I guess you could say SFA experience. Now I have no interest in bobbing along on a keel boat so I am getting a cat and have narrowed choices down to a Nacra 5.0 or a Nacra 5.
  23. I had 1985 turbo that had full rake and step and based worked as normal. Before that I had a 1980 H14 converted turbo were the back of the mast base would dig into the mast step and it had 8mm aluminum built up at front and 2 centre piece in the base. Uncle modified 1975 H14 to have build up at front of mast step and rake. You can tell earlier mast steps as they are wider at front as it was pre-rake and pre-max-mast rotation. Used not to run that much rake on my turbo as it was harder to tack quickly. At 65kg skip weight it did not nose dive, only in big swell off shore or 30knot gust downwind
  24. I am interested in the rudders and rudder mechanism - are they still available
