Looking for an NSM2
I'm looking for an NSM2 in a ready to race condition, preferably nearer to SW London than Birmingham, is there one out there? Wife says she'll crew for me if I get a boat with a real thwart!
Rob you seriously need to come to the inlands at Blithfield.
3346 - composite, deck-stepped NSM2 sadly for sale (We have seen the dark side and bought a Winder). Actively campaigned last 2 years at Salcombe and on the Midland and Silver Tiller circuits. At Blithfield ready to go and available for the Inlands. Advert about to appear on For Sale page.
Chris - ex Galactic Gnu
Rob, you might remember 3346 when we sailed her at Burghfield SC in the late '90s, when the club ran Merlin Opens and we attended the Nationals in those days. Successful owners have updated the equipment from the alloy mast etc. we had.
Galactic Gnu spent a bit of time at Hampton in Mike Hendy's ownership, Rob and I will remember her from then. Is Seventh Heaven still for sale? Would be worth a trip up the M6 if so Rob, there is not another NSM2 with a better record and was in good condition about 3 years ago when I crewed in her one day at Rutland, everything present and correct, even working! There may even be a corrector or two you could take out and replace with cushions on the thwart for Jo
Perhaps I should explain further, I have a Winder and I want an NSM2 to sail on the river at Hampton where I have crew problems, I'm committed this weekend, and most weekends so I don't really want to spend a day on a motorway looking for a boat.
We added the name decals on the side....it looked like Salactic Snu...miss that boat, would love to have her here with me..we bought her from Richard Battey, she was very pretty
After 27 years I'd like to think that she still looks pretty good
GG was another of the many Merlins I have owned and a lovely boat she is. I hade her deck stepped and a square hoop installed by Laurie Smart back in about 2004 and as ever a fine job he did too. I bought the boat off Chris. I agree those decals were a bit dodgy. Good to hear from you Mike.
Thanks Richard, long way from home...not a merlin for miles around...
Wembly and Hampton coming up,any one for transporting an NSM 2 South - oneway.
