Interesting to see the heavy discoloration on the main. I like the fact that the Nirvana has such good resale value. That's a good thing. I have seen cleaner boats than this one, but hey, it's worth whatever someone will pay.

Anyone have an idea as to how to get my MLC Porsche back from my son who is approaching his own MLC? It's a sweet '66 912, restored in late 80's, then I couldn't get in and out of low car, so I went to trucks and SUVs. But, I miss it. Anyone know a discreet repo man working down south?[/QUOTE] jppom

Are you still on the title and do you have a set of keys for it? If the answer is yes to both, this seems a simple task. A simpler appoarch would be to let him know you want it back, and if that doesn't work, how about telling him he will be removed from your will! That should do it!

Saw that on ebay late Wednsday nite at $137.50 and made a bid of $140 then went to bed. The next morning I looked at it and it had jumped up to the current bid of $275 and I said the heck with it. After all its an old model with a am radio. As I told the wife I can get a new one with the fm radio for $199 from Sail RC. Like Boomer said its only worth what someone is willing to pay for it

I save the grocery bag to put over my head when having a bad sail day.

Not through with her yet, but she is in sail-able condition finally.

Don't know if I will have to wait until spring now or if maybe we'll get some freaky warm weather again.

What do you think Chidago, should a create some rabbit trails here with it?

I have a cool Footy about half built from scratch too, The Brando model designed by Flavio Faloci

From a few years ago, when she was still mine.
It is probably going to fall into the hands of my grandkids, they'll start getting tickets, insurance will go up, and he will be begging me to take it back. I just have to be patient.

Do you think the Brando sail plan would work on a Cobra. Mast position is my greatest concern.
