If I wanted to just run a boomless jib, not a big deal, just would rig the port side with the block arrangement the starboard side has, using stock stuff, not a big pull from stock, but, then it AINT a genoa.

So, if this were any other boat, I would do it..The Nirvana tho, is special to me, I bought it as a lark, was knew that it could make me GREAT friends, give me huge hours of entertainment, not sailing, but, here yappin.., and has truly been a ball..I have come to know very well so many good men because of this little boat.

End of story, I aint EVER gonna tear it up.. a genoa..

Its modded, good sails, trick keel, great radio gear, personal paint scheme..

What more can I ask?


It's perfect John!!!
