Re: Jay Greene Nipper

Glad to hear some one else is working on a Nipper. Just had a friend that gave me one that had been sitting in a field for a number of years along with a trailer. All kinds of things growing out of the hull..Starting to work on her and have found that all of the foam under the floor is completely soaked and will have to cut the floor out and remove the soaked foam. It weighs a ton. Just had a new alum. center board made. The sails and hardware are in good shape so looking forward to the task. Just finished an old Phantom and it sails great. Please let me know a little about your project and do you have to worry about the soaked foam? If you have any pictures it would be great to see them...Thanks Bill
