So sorry! We have changed our process on registrations and I am dropping the ball. I promise I will get ahead of it! Do you need your official number?

I have not changed the placement of the shrouds along the toe rail or on the mast.

I seem to have a bit of a problem is strong gusts for the boat to develop instant weather helm. Is there anything that can be done about this since we can't move the mast or tilt it much? I'll check out those sources for adjustment screws although I did find one at the LHS that is a clevis on a swivel.

Bud,

I have found that by loosening up on the backstay tension and almost removing it helps with the weather helm and allows the boat to point straight with little or no steering.

As far as heavy winds, I don't think there is much you can do. You can play with the backstay tension increasing and decreasing to find the sweet spot.

As far as clevis with a swivel. Crash uses a pull pull system that comes with clevis and wire on a few of his other boats with great success. I purchase my malin line from Bass Pro along with different weight rating swivels and other things.

The only way to make a clevis adjustable without the wire spiralling is to add a swivel of some sort somewhere either the top or the bottom.

Hope this helps.

Welcome to the forum Theresa.
Glad to see you are monitoring it.

BTW, is that idea feasible, issuing registration numbers with each Nirvana sold?

That would save a lot of hassle for the new owner and yourself too I would think.

Welcome to our little party Theresa.

I checked out the Regatta report you put up on Sailrc...very nice...except the last pic is really dark...

You get that thumb drive yet?

BTW...I unofficially changed the number on the used to be #87 boat "Crimson Tide" here in Montgomery, to unlucky number 13. Partly because I puke at the thought of anything Rolled Tide and partly because we had too many number 87s at the regatta. That ugly TIDE boat has been converted for pirateering into the VULTURE. She gets her maiden tomorrow....pic coming soon...

I keep a running list of used numbers at our webpage. So please don't give that new one out here....nobody wants it anyway...thanks

I suggested that to Steve at the reagtta. I think there is a problem with Steve knowing who already has what numbers where. Not everyone posts whats already being used in their neck-o-the-woods like I do. Anyway maybe a note in the box with the new boat on how/where to register would work? Or is he already doing that?

Look back a few pages and you will see that Steve moved his jib forward to reduce weatherhelm. That might be worth a try...

Would it help if we put our reg number in our avatar sigs?

Like this? (see avatar)

Please help me to understand the problem here. I realize I am old and apparently have a contrarian gene in my makeup but I thought that this was pretty clear.

Each Nirvana boat, upon owner registration, will be issued a hull number in sequence. The official sail number shall be the last two digits of the hull number. (from sail RC)
I.E. my assigned hull number is 796 making my sail number 96

Also in a regatta when 2 or more boats have the same sail number a temporary digit is placed before the 2 digit sail number. There is no mention of numbers being allocated to any particular area or club or arbitrarily choosing a different number. I suppose when sailing in your own sphere of interest you can put whatever you like on the sail but in a national event it is clear to me that each boat has one and only one sail number and that number will reoccur in every 100 boats registered.

So again, please help me understand the problem or need for any other lists than Steves and/or Theresa's.

Not sure what your talking about....but I keep a list of all numbers in my club...around 33 or so now, so we don't duplicate them within our club.

Exactly what I'm talking about, Rob. If Steve/Theresa issue numbers sequentially to every boat registered, how do you keep from having duplicates in your club? Are they all registered? If so how do you keep from having duplicates issued? Does Steve have a separate group of numbers just for MMBA?
See why I'm confused (as always). If in fact Steve does issue the hull numbers sequentially as requests come in no one including Steve can make sure there is no duplicate it is decided by the next on his list.

BTW the Vulture looks great and the sails have a nice set to them.
