Good news. I located and purchased a new "in the box" Tamiya/Yamaha RC Sailboat round the world series. There are a few more out there, but most who have them won't part with them. I am trying to find the Crew kit that Tamiya made for this boat when they were in production. Any one having a set for sale, please let me know. Thank you

Ed M. if you are out there, drop a line. I will be making some of the modifications you made to your boat. Thanks for the documentation.

If you have one in good shape and want sell it, please contact me. (Tamiya/Yamaha RC Sailboat round the world series.)

I have three RC Sailboats now, and will be selling one of my boats, a Nirvana ll (Red) 2 months old. Great boats, but the wife advises me that if I want another boat, one has to go. I have two Nirvana ll and one Monsoon/Shunbo.

I just got the Monsoon, and after making the needed modifications, I am very happy with the boat. If anyone has one, and needs any tips on how to put the boat in top form let me know. I have corrected issues with the mast, leaky hatch, poor keel and rudder connections, rigging etc. It cost very little to make this a very good RC Sailboat. A little engineering and time and she can handle winds of 15+ knots. The boat is really a looker and I have to say it is a really good value for the money. The manufacturer cut some corners, but don't they all?

Again anyone having Tamiya/Yahama RC Sailboat round the world series and is ready to sell, please let me know.
Thank you
