Jungle jim,

I say ; watch the main catsailor forum and ask your questions there. You are more likely to make contact with (former) supercat 17 sailors there.

Other then that let your eye wander over to the F16 and F17 forums now and then and pick up some specific info related to single handing a beach catamaran.

That seems to be the best approach based on what I know about the forums at catsailor.

Regards,

Wouter

Awesome Leigh, Did you get wings?
This will be my next boat after I learn how to sail with a spin.
I was thinking FX-one, but now they (Nacra Australia) are fitting wings, I'm 99% sold on the Idea.
Bob Curry seems to have all the tricks.

Heya Mate,
Not sure where the "wings" came from, i think they are probably an after-market add-on... The class rules are yet to be established here but, (i believe) that to keep things consistent we'll go down the path of doing the same as the U.S.? Perhaps we could all get sponsorship from Libra Fleur and make up our own take on the class here in OZ??? smile
Cheers,
Leroy

Are the nacraclass links all dead? Is there a Nacra 17 class page anymore?

Is there any more news on the Morelli and Melvin NACRA 17 here or elsewhere? Its pix are out, and several competed in Olympic trials. Where was this and did any Americans get a chance to compete in it? Its April already.

Matt,

I have an HT mast that would work well for that.

I am looking for a Hobie 17 mast, any ideas?
Can the composite tip on my old mast (1986 boat) be easily removed? Is so can I cut down a Hobie 18 mast, install my tip, and transfer all the fittings?

If you are still looking, I have a Hobie 17 mast with a broken comp-tip. Located in Greenville South Carolina. Free if you pick it up.
