Well guys...I got out bid on the Yamaha. I waited until 10 seconds left and lost by a couple bucks. I didn't want to spend more than 500 with shipping on a boat that was going to get well used abused...maybe next time...let me know if ya see another one...

I found another couple of your pictures that are worth sharing again. Photography by Robert Franklin aka Crash "The Man, the Myth, the Legend".

Again, Rob has been able to capture some of the essence of RC sailing in these pictures.

No problem Crash - It is my hope to get the other guys to participate here, so we can build a nice archive of boat pictures here on the "Official Nirvana" thread. The other thread has been going very well since it began. I have been collecting some of the great photography shared over there.

This thread is more focused, well kind of focused on Nirvana's, thus the suggestion to post relative pics here. Ok, guys the pump has been primed.



Sorry you missed that one. I know I guy that has one new in the box. I will contact him to see if he'd part with it.

Thanks...let him know I don't want to spend more than 500 with shipping...like I said it will not be put in a glass case so it can be used as long as everything minus the radio is there...and of course it still looks great...

Thanks

It was kind of hard to chase down that last boat with the jib flopping around...

Here is a pic from the archives....

Oh my ...

...Boomer I could give you a big fat kiss...I just scored a NIB Yamaha for $413.00 and change delivered to the door!

Sometimes things happen for a reason...I missed out on the used one and get rewarded with something even better....

Thanks so much for the lead....

OK, I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop! I don't see any action pictures of a Nirvana. All I see is a box of pasta. I don't get it?
Help me I am old.

Review on the Nirvana by Jeff Troy - historial document

I was doing a little web-surfing and came up with an old review that was published on our beloved Nirvana. HMReview by Jeff Troy - don't know if anyone remembers reading or seeing it, but it was well done with good pictures.

I think anyone considering getting a Nirvana or just getting into RC sailing would enjoy this review.

Check it out on the attached pdf. I think with the exception the 27mhz radio, the article/review is darn near on the money.

Could be another "nugget" for the Knowledge Base.
