Re: nelson Marek 45 owners Any out there?

HI Gang! I am about to purchase a 454 and am concerned that there are a variety of views as to the sailing quality of this boat. I know she is sturdy but is she fun to sail? Any recounts of your experiences would be greatly appreciated. I will sail the Great Lakes this summer and head for the Bahamas the following year if all goes well.

Re: nelson Marek 45 owners Any out there?

Hi...I have just purchased a 1983 NM 45 that is in average condition. I have read older threads and comments as research, and most of it is positive, and it seems that it is a decent boat. i certainly like the accommodations below with the 2 queen berths forward & aft.
seems that she sails well and is fast. Apparently rolly downwind without a spinnaker.
As i just purchased mine this week, i have not yet sailed her, and need help.
Issue #1 :I need some info on the centerboard : mine has lost its cable and i wonder if it is replaceable and how. Any info on the centerboard would help a lot.
Issue #2 :I have a hood in-mast mainsail and do not know how to roll it in. I think there is a motor somewhere, but cannot find it or the switch??
Good luck with your boat and enjoy it!!

Hey bern, I can't help you on your question - but I can tell you I'm envious. I bought a 1989 Hunter 40. And one of the reasons is that it resembles the NM 45 in many ways, including an after centerline queen berth.

Get pics up when you can. I'd love to see it. Congrats!

Bernache, hoping you have fixed your problems with your new boat and sailing her now. Please let us know how you fixed your problems. I have experience with the centerboard on a Irwin 39 and may be able to help.
