Wolfman Posted June 12, 2009 Report Share Posted June 12, 2009 Hello Everyone, I just purchased an early refurbished Nacra 5.2 (new sails, tramp, hulls gellcoated, new sheets). I'm not sure how old it is exactly but early 80's by some of the bits on it (original sails are long gone). I probably own the only one in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. For those without a map, that's pretty close to the very center of North America. I used to crew a Hobie 16 when I was a kid (15+ years ago) and this is my first boat since. I will be sailing at my cottage on a fairly small lake(10 km by 10 km) for the most part. This weekend will be my first time out attempting to rig and get it in the water. I read 2 of Phil Berman's books on Catamarans but I'm still very nervous. Any advice, words of wisdom, words of derision would be very much appreciated. The opportunity to get this boat presented itself and I had to take it. Am I a complete idiot for starting so big? Regards, Dave Bonin Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
