Re: New Nylet Spirit is here! Progress at last!

Many thanks David re your comments about the second set of shrouds. I have spoken with Frank Parsons at Nylet, and he confirms your point that they are not within the current rules of IOM racing. My guess is that they have been amended during the years that the boat has been being built, so the buil...

Re: New Nylet Spirit is here! Progress at last!

Hi David, I will investigate the situation re the second shroud and of course conform to the rules. I understand your comments re the previous owner, sorry the previous previous owner, if that makes sense. ( I bought it from second owner who had it for about 10 days!), but I think his intentions wer...

Re: New Nylet Spirit is here! Progress at last!

Hi David, Firstly thank you for your interest in the boat. I will try and answer your comments/questions as best I can. As I stated at the outset of my portion of this post (I did not build much of this boat) I am no expert in IOM but the boat and the rig was built as per that recommended by the des...

Re: New Nylet Spirit is here! Progress at last!

At last the text can again live up to the title of this posting! I received an offer for my current boat, which I accepted, necessitating a revision as to time frames to complete the Nylet Spirit 3. I have essentially completed the build and have given it a brief shakedown sail. So what have I done?...

Mystery IOM yacht

Unfortunately I do not have any history for it and would like to register it. All I know is that it has a Gosport Model Boat Club sticker ...

Re: New Nylet Spirit is here! Progress at last!

It is two years since Dave Pickett posted his last update on the IOMICA forum, listing his highs and lows building his Nylet Spirit 3. Unfortunately it was never completed and I purchased it on eBay several weeks ago. The boat was pretty well as the last post described. The wooden gunnel was fitted ...
