Re: Jay Greene Nipper

I found the following history of the Ray Greene "Nipper." My first sailboat ride was on a Ray Greene Rebel, almost a half-century ago. The Rebel was purportedly the very first fiberglass reinforced plastic sailboat, the first of which was built in 1948. You might have to paste the following address into your browser. Nippers |

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

I was lucky enough to pick up this 12 footer and now I'm trying to get some information. The previous owner said it was the model boat used at his Summer Camp in Maryland. It's 98% there, just some minor repairs, mostly cosmetic. All my on line searching has turned up very little about these boats, any help would be appreciated.
