New to me 2015 Nacra F16  Bottom

  • Bought a place with beach access to Lake Michigan. Thinking my Inter 20 is a bit much without experienced crew to sail on a regular basis, or solo, so started looking for a second boat. Found a very lightly used 2015 Nacra F16. Couple of questions for anyone that has experience with the platform.

    1. Fixed the recall notice that I found searching for information on the internet. Placed a spacer in the mast base to stop it from compressing on itself. Anyone know of any other fixes/upgrades that should be done to the stock boat?
    2. The aluminum on the daggerboard slots seems to be a bit rough and I am afraid use may scrape up the boards. Is this normal and/or should I try to smooth them out?
    2. Have the straight boards. Are the curved worth the upgrade? Any advice on the daggerboard slot positions for the curved boards?

  • Hi Steve,
    I have 2013 Nacra F16 as well but was only sold in 2015. It's been a very good boat and fun to sail. Though I still have issues solo righting it.

    #1. haven't heard about the recall on the mast base but I bought mine used as well and might already have been fixed.

    #2. I don't recall any aluminum on the daggerboard slots. Mine looks like HDPE (high density polyethylene) pieces that holds the boards down in the slots.

    #3. Make sure to secure your boards as I lost one when I tipped the boat and they were already taken out of the slots. Anyway, while I was working with Nacra in the Netherlands, they stated that curved wouldn't fit in my year. And on top, these are pretty expensive to buy.
  • Thanks, thinking my boat has the newer daggerboard cassettes.

    Link follows for the mast base issue.


    It's for Nacra 16's built after 2014 and Nacra 15 boats.
