    Made some sails.
    Painted the hull, add some stickers for windows.
    Have tried to do the rigging but will most likely need to change this.
    Things to do include the RC Box servo operation etc.

    ๐Ÿ“ Old Sails and Rigging

    Some pictures of the original sails and rigging, to my surprise the carbon fibre mast was in two sections, there is no mention of this in any manual or information regarding this boat.
    It could be a replacement (Perhaps a fishing rod!).

    Ok
    start by removing all I can from the hull, rudder, mast, stickers,
    stays. etc
    a) Sand down the hull and wash with white spirit.
    b) Fill scratches and re-sand.
    c) Reinforce mast position surrounding area.

    I have by luck, not judgement acquired a second hand 'Nirvana' Yacht, it is a sloop rigged craft that was only sold in America and retailed between $250 and $350 according to the revision version and the year brought.

    This was a bit of a surprise to me as I only paid ยฃ10 for it.

    The Nirvana RC Sailboat was first produced by Megatech in 2002. and is 32in long and the hull& deck are ABS plastic.

    The quality of the boat is unmatched in the price range, with such features as a lead keel ballast, superior polyester sails that won't mildew, stretch or tear, and fittings that make the boat a dream to sail. The mast and booms are made of carbon reinforced composite that is light and very strong.

    The Boat hull is in sound condition just a few scratches, there is a hairline crack in the mast area, no radio gear at all. and sails are usable but really need replacing.
