Help identify dinghy.

Hello all.

My cousin owns a 12ft sailing dinghy that he has never sailed let alone rigged.
I am trying to identify what it is.

Click on my profile and go to my homepage URL to see the pictures of the boat.

Cheers
Lee

Lee, it looks to me like an old NS14..

NS 14 (Northbridge Senior) - Classes - Yachte.com.au

If it truly is 12' long, IIRC, I do believe there was an NS12 for a while there back in the "old days", but, like "Super Sabots" and the like you don't see them racing outside of small local fleets due to competion from internationally-recognised classes like the Taser, 420, etc. etc.

Thanks Hartley18.

Same logo on the sail. Now all they need is a rigging manual. There are so many cleats etc on the boat its not funny.

Cheers

I don't remember NS14's being the easiest things to sail.. but I was a lot more timid back then. They're a fast, very wet, two-up dinghy that are a real blast when upright and a royal pain when not.

Yes, rigging it could be interesting - particularly if it's one of the older ones that had sail controls for just about everything. Best advice would be to get in touch with the Association and see if they can lend a hand. There may even be someone nearby who has one that would be happy to help.

Enjoy!
