  11. Taipan 5.7 Catamaran

    Boat is sold 
  12. SOLD!!! Maricat 4.3 metre, off the beach, racing , fun sailing catamaran. Complete with Registered trailer, in excellent condition. Also has brand new (only used a few times), Cat Hauler, catamaran rollers which cost $650. Has a lot of new gear fitted to it, including, racing design downhaul and outhaul systems. New mainsheet. New rudder steering set up, which has taken all slop out of the the rudders, making the rudders, having very positive and effective steering. The trampoline, has been strenghthened, and is in great condition. The hulls have also been strengthened, so the boat can be pushed to the limits and not break up. This is done by reinforcing the side stay chainplate fastening points, and fittings stronger chainplates. There is also a boat cover, that had been custom made from heavy duty taughtliner truck tarp material, with re-inforced binding around all of the edges. (this cost over $600 for just the materials to make). The boat comes with the orange and yellow striped main sail and matching jib, with roller furler for jib, at the asking price. The sails are in great condition, and hold a good shape. Please note, I have only sailed the boat as a cat rigged (main sail only) hence why photos do not show it as sloop rigged. I have all of the deck hardware and jib sheets, and jib halyard to fit, and sail as sloop rigged. For an extra $1100, I am prepared to sell my racing sails. These are Lilac and White in colour. They are made by Redhead sails, and are radial cut. They are made of ripstop dacron sailcloth. These sails have had only a small amount of use. They are in excellent shape and condition. With these sails fitted to the boat, it makes maricats, extremely fast. The mast is raked back further with these sails fitted, and it makes the boat fast upwind and very fast on a reach. I am also prepared to sell these sails off separately to anyone that would like to purchase these. I have a genuine reason for selling the catamaran. As I had a knee injury back in January. After having a knee operation in April, and then physio since the operation, I have found that I am unable to hike out (with straightened legs) on the catamaran with my knee not allowing me to do so. I therefore need to sell my boat, and to revert back to sailing and racing a dinghy (hiking out with slightly bent legs). I am willing to consider a direct swap on a dinghy of equivalent market value. It must be fibreglass, no plywood or timber boats. They must have a trailer and a launching trolley. Tell me what you have. Interests, in 420, 470, ns14, tasar. I am prepared to negotiate on price. The boat is available for viewing at Yorktown, just 8kms north of Beaconsfield, in the West Tamar Valley. (50kms north of Launceston). 74kms East of Devonport.

  17. Rigging question: Nacra 4.5

    Hi Clance,   On my sons 4.5 we go through the bottom pulley, back up and through the thimble on halyard and a couple of half hitches around itself.  We find this gives you enough purchase but you can easily go down and up again for more purchase if you need it.     Let me know if you need any other tips.  Where are you located as we have a decent fleet of 4.5s at LSWSA on Brisbanes North side.   Mark
  18. Rigging question: Nacra 4.5

    The other possibility is, through the pulley back to a cleat on the front beam, so tension can be adjusted throughout wind variations. Ideal for soft jibs (no battens)  
  19. Rigging question: Nacra 4.5

    G'day Clance, sounds like the halyard would go around the pulley, back up through the thimble, then tied off on the bridle, that gives you four to one tension and should be more than enough. Ross at Brisbane Catamaran Centre designed that cat and would answer any questions you may have 
  20. I’m wondering where do I tie off the jib halyard after it comes down through the bottom of the zipper. The forestay chain plate has a pulley at the base, so I’m assuming the halyard passes through the pulley to gain tension, but I can’t figure out where to tie it off after that. I’ve tried passing it through the chainplate holes and then tying off the excess, but find after 10-20mins of sailing the luff tension decreases and the jib starts crease up. Any tips/pics would be much appreciated.

  24. Finding parts

    Sounds par for the course! You could try Rohan of Mid North Sailes (I think) I don't know his number but others might.  He's certainly doing mains for a very good price and I'd bet that he's also done the plans for a tramp since he turned up with a very well presented boat the other year.
  25. Finding parts

    sorry double post :/
  26. Finding parts

    Well, the saga continues. Ian at Redhead had told me he could do it a few weeks after Easter. Okay, no problem. Three weeks past Easter, nothing. I send an email. Several weeks later, nothing, I leave a message on his phone. Another couple of weeks another message. Another couple of weeks Ian sends me an SMS to say "Sorry the Mari tramp is not done as I was tied upon a job. I am now away and won't get to it till August. I will ring on my return.   Not impressed at all.
