startnout Posted April 5, 2022 Report Share Posted April 5, 2022 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 5.8. I like the idea of no dagger boards on the 5.0 but am a little concerned that it might struggle with my 96kg + the wife when she comes along. But on the other hand I like the size of the 5.8 particularly when my 21 year old son joins me as I am sure we will want to fly the hull high and fast once we get through the learning curve. My question is, those that have a 5.0 will it suit my wants or should I get the 5.8? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
