  1. Had this for 3 years bought it of a guy who had it about the same. Not sure how old it really is. Sail number is 43 so that should help. Boat is in very good condition. Selling due to lack of being used. I just had the tail lights replaced and had a few loose stitches in the main sail fixed. It's on a registered trailer [till July 2017] comes with a spare wheel, has beach rollers and has a long and short tiller stick. I bought this after having a 5.2. This boat's mast is much easier to erect and in fact I've set it up myself a few times. It is ideal in that you can sail it by yourself or have crew. There are two large storage compartments one on each side. These are great for putting water, food, sun cream etc in. I've sailed mainly of Mooloolaba and Lake Cootharaba. There's no dagger boards or boom so this is a very easy to use boat. Emphasis on fun Price $3999.45 ono. Buderim Sunshine Coast

    Which Nacra?

    Hi Guys , I want to down size . I had a 5.2 . I'm gathering info so as to make the right choice, having been mislead the first time. I would like a boat that can be sailed solo for fun and on the occasion have a passenger. My price range is around $4K. So I thought a 4.5 however there's not much available and the one that is, has a price twice that of similar boats that have sold in the last 2 years . Is a 14 SQ to small for me being 100kg? At 56 y.o can I get the mast up solo on a 5.0 . Having no boom or centre boards should make it easy to set up and sail solo. Any advice? There's a 16SQ if it has a sweeper sail, then it's no good for a passenger. There's little info on the above older boats. The newer versions of the ones above sometimes are very different to the ones produced 20+ years ago. So any advice would be helpful to me and I'm sure others who are in the same boat? Thanks

    Which Nacra?

    Is the problem the weight of moving the cat around on and off the trailer to the water and back, raising or lowering the mast or just handling the power? I know I can handle the power on these boats. Your info on the 14 sq convinces me that this boat would tick most of the boxes. Which boat is quick and easy to rig the 14sq or the 5.0.? The 5.0 having no dagger boards and boom looks good. Does the 19sq sail mean it has a large mast and therefore more difficult to get up solo?
  7. There seems to be a shortage of lower priced 2nd hand boats. I know it's that time of year when people think of sailing. For me, I think it will take some time in finding a boat. The quality ones seem to sell fairly quickly. Plus some owners of boats requiring plenty of work are asking top price. One boat I was going to look at was sold when another buyer put down a deposit even though he hadn't seen the boat yet. I've been caught once with a boat that required heaps of $ to make it seaworthy! So I'm telling my self to be patient.

  9. Hi Guys, Finally got some fun wind [around 13K] which was very enjoyable. I was surprised that we virtually had the place to our selves! On a previous occasions it has been 20 k +. Not good for a newbie. Very stressful! The lake has heaps of room to play around in. When I come in and park the boat everything is so close . One minute later I'm at the shop ordering lunch. Then it's back out again. I was surprised how tired i was after a day out. I sail a Nacra 5.2 Number 1114. Hope to see someone else one day ! Cheers Peter

    Set up time

    Hi Guys, I bought a 5.2. a year ago. Would you believe my first solo set up [ without experienced help] took 2 1/2 hours . Since then I've got it below 1 1/2 hours but haven't yet cracked the the one hour mark. I'm told a 5.8 can take as little as 45 minutes. Is this accurate? Cheers Moaiman

    Water in Hull

    Hi Guys, My RHS hull in my 5.2 is taking on a lot more water than it should. I have no idea where it's leaking from. I know around the base of the dagger boards is common area to look. I've tried sealing the inspection hatches and bungs by using plumbers gas tape. That didn't make any difference. Being the latest owner of an old boat means I don't know if there's any history to it? All I know is little has been done in the past so my $ spent to fix it, is climbing. [ which means I could have bought a lot better boat] . I'll well press on any way. I thought I might take it to a servo and some how, fill it with air and listen for leaks. So if there's any other ideas how to go about fixing the problem could you let me know? Thanks Peter

    Water in Hull

    Thanks for replies. I went for water in the hull. I kept an eye on how much the trailer/boat could handle. I quickly found the crack. It's right near the front rhs trailer roller.

    bottom of mast cast alum broken

    The price for the complete mast step is around $150. Labour to put it in is $250 from Briscat. I had it put in December

    Broken Step Mast

    As there is two bars coming out from the base of the mast making the mast rotation re stricter if you come straight back it could put a hole in the tramp. As I'm careful of this I am aware to turn the mast.

    Broken Step Mast

    Hi Guys, Can anyone tell me what happened to my step mast for 5.2. I'm unaware of anything contributing to its demise. It broke as I was lowering the mast.It has been used twice. Check photos attached. Thanks Peter

    Newbie needs Cat

    Hi Guys, I'm looking out for a 2nd hand cat. Around $1000 + to spend. Any tips on what to look for? On the following Kula Kats, Maricat Kaper Cat. I want to be able to set up/ sail by myself at times. I'm on the Sunshine Coast and have seen some already. Soft hulls, missing parts, broken rudders, poor condition sails or too dear have stopped me so far. I sail a Hobie Adventure Island trimaran at the moment and want something faster .Thanks for any replies!

    Newbie needs Cat

    I have bought a Nacra 5.2. I am looking forward to my first sail. Whilst I don't know a lot I'm up for the challenge. Once I get the hang of it in protected waters, I'll be heading out from Mooloolaba then up to Old Woman Island and back. Bit disappointed about the forum in that there was only one reply .Cheers
