Vintage N12 for sale

Post by nprice » Thu Nov 05, 2009 11:58 pm

Sadly, due to the deaath of one of our members, David Wield, his National 12 Neptune, 1567 is for sale. This boat has been stored inside at Ranelagh since I have been a member and is pulled up. A look inside revealed two sets of sails and two wooden booms. It looks sound if in need of varnish and won series with David back in the day. Mast may be wood or aluminium, not sure which at this point but if anyone is interested, let me know. Be happy to show it.

David's sister has also found some more sails in Galmpton including cotton, though the mice have got at some of them. She also has sails with 2 inverted arrows, don't know what those are?

Had another look at this today. It has Needlespar metal mast which doesn't have any rigging. Metal centreboard.

Nick,

Are you sure that the inverted arrows aren't sails for use on a capsized Merlin.

If part of an N falls of you could get an inverted arrow. Also an N on both sides of the sail if superimposed could be described as inverted arrows.

I took it to mean a manufacturer's mark of an upside down arrow in the corner?

No more details of those sails which are in Brixham. Neptune won our winter series twice in 72/3 and 74/5 when the likes of Michael Jackson were sailing at Ranelagh. Hope to take some pictures later today.

Pictures of a very dusty Neptune, including Trophy board, are now up on Ranelagh's web pages.
