Thanks, I saw the mod you made, impressive and feel it is greatly improves the feed. It is on my list of potential improvements. I was wondering if maybe tying the sheets together in a couple of spots with sewing thread might prevent the separation. Or does the electronic box cover prevent over riding the roller.
Thanks

Yeah Chidago, 80 last week, 36 yesterday. Come on Spring

You can check with Rod Leathers - current Nrivana class secretary at 803 547 5533 or e-mail your question to nirvana@TheAMYA.org He should have a list that might be of help.

Or check with your local hobby shops. When I first got started in this, the manager of the Lake Forest Hobby People (Mark) new about the local sailing clubs and what lakes/ponds they used in my area. (Orange County.) I checked with the other local hobby shop and they had the same info, so chances are your local shop could be of help there.

SS,
a person should be able to ask any question on any subject, thats what forums are about, right?

the sail numbers are the last TWO numbers in the HID..this has been the accepted practice all over the world, thats why there are duplicates, some of the reason for it is as simple as room on the sail, 3, 4, or 5 numbers aint gonna fit..in a regatta situation, if 2 boats have the same sail number, you tape a prefix number on for the race ID only.

Thanks, I found that on some site, not that I'll be involved in regatta's. I'm mainly adding sail numbers for identification between two same colored boats. Want to keep them stock for resale value in case this "dream" sinks.

Any success with your heavier keel bulb?

SS,
actually, after listening to people who actually know what they are doing, I formatted a longer keel shaft, stayed with the same weight, but, made a more streamlined bulb..we'll see when I have someone who knows how to sail, sail it. it can go back to stock rig and keel in about 10 min, so, no harm no foul.

Chidago, just to mess with your mind a little, if I may, If I shouldn't say so??

From www.theamya.org/boats/us1m/pdf/us1mpt2.pdf constructing a 1m on bulb shape. Page 28

Is this small modification still ok for class races?

John,
I like it! Do you think a Nirvana ll running a "Hemi" will disqualify you from racing in the Nirvana AMYA class?

The hull and the rigging are all still in compliance, and I don't remember reading anything about having a big block on board.

Perhaps, we could consider adding a drag racing class?
Very cool.

I am a chevy man myself.

Now we're talkin! However, I think the smaller "Hemi" would be more in keeping with class weight limitations.

I'll have to get out my rule book to make sure you are still in compliance.
Shouldn't be a problem. If anyone should ask, tell um it's a just a generator to charge your batteries.

So long as you stay with the stock hull and rigging you should be fine.
