  1. Had this for 3 years bought it of a guy who had it about the same. Not sure how old it really is. Sail number is 43 so that should help. Boat is in very good condition. Selling due to lack of being used. I just had the tail lights replaced and had a few loose stitches in the main sail fixed. It's on a registered trailer [till July 2017] comes with a spare wheel, has beach rollers and has a long and short tiller stick. I bought this after having a 5.2. This boat's mast is much easier to erect and in fact I've set it up myself a few times. It is ideal in that you can sail it by yourself or h
  2. Thanks for your replies. I have bought a NACRA 4.5 .
  3. Is the problem the weight of moving the cat around on and off the trailer to the water and back, raising or lowering the mast or just handling the power? I know I can handle the power on these boats. Your info on the 14 sq convinces me that this boat would tick most of the boxes. Which boat is quick and easy to rig the 14sq or the 5.0.? The 5.0 having no dagger boards and boom looks good. Does the 19sq sail mean it has a large mast and therefore more difficult to get up solo?
  4. Hi Guys , I want to down size . I had a 5.2 . I'm gathering info so as to make the right choice, having been mislead the first time. I would like a boat that can be sailed solo for fun and on the occasion have a passenger. My price range is around $4K. So I thought a 4.5 however there's not much available and the one that is, has a price twice that of similar boats that have sold in the last 2 years . Is a 14 SQ to small for me being 100kg? At 56 y.o can I get the mast up solo on a 5.0 . Having no boom or centre boards should make it easy to set up and sail solo. Any advice? There
  5. There seems to be a shortage of lower priced 2nd hand boats. I know it's that time of year when people think of sailing. For me, I think it will take some time in finding a boat. The quality ones seem to sell fairly quickly. Plus some owners of boats requiring plenty of work are asking top price. One boat I was going to look at was sold when another buyer put down a deposit even though he hadn't seen the boat yet. I've been caught once with a boat that required heaps of $ to make it seaworthy! So I'm telling my self to be patient.

  9. I have a 5.2 for 3K new rigging done November 2011. Contact Peter 0412 955 209 Sunshine Coast
  10. Thanks for replies. I went for water in the hull. I kept an eye on how much the trailer/boat could handle. I quickly found the crack. It's right near the front rhs trailer roller.
  11. The price for the complete mast step is around $150. Labour to put it in is $250 from Briscat. I had it put in December
  12. As there is two bars coming out from the base of the mast making the mast rotation re stricter if you come straight back it could put a hole in the tramp. As I'm careful of this I am aware to turn the mast.
  13. I have bought a Nacra 5.2. I am looking forward to my first sail. Whilst I don't know a lot I'm up for the challenge. Once I get the hang of it in protected waters, I'll be heading out from Mooloolaba then up to Old Woman Island and back. Bit disappointed about the forum in that there was only one reply .Cheers
