      Hi Sue,

      Unfortunately, the manufacturer did not provide those hooks to us for the Nirvana. Please check in your local hobby store first – if you don’t find them there, I have seen them before on eBay.

      Please email me directly if you don’t have any luck and I will help you find them.

    Hi, I was interested in new sails for a nirvana II. The main has a crease and the battens have fallen off.
    Is it Possible to get a new set? Or more Battens?

      We are waiting on the arrival of both Nirvana parts and the Nirvanas themselves. Sails do some separately but are completely white – no battens, no markings.

      The “battens” on the Nirvana sails that come with the boat are truly just for looks. They do not perform as battens would on a full size boat (or even a model boat). If you like the look, we recommend cutting out the shape and size in either black vinyl tape you buy from a sign shop or from black electrical tape.

      We hope to have the sails, and all Nirvana boats and parts, before Summer 2014.

    The jib line (running rigging) broke and I’ve tried to find some replacement line, but the stuff I have available here is either to large or to stiff. I live in a small town, in Texas, by the Gulf of Mexico and the only stuff they seem to carry is for deep water fishing… Can you offer a small spool of line for repairs?

      Hi Larry,

      Your best bet is to buy Gorilla Tough 50 pound test. It comes in spools of 300 yards (enough for quite a few fleets!). If you don’t see it at Home Depot or Walmart then here is a link to buy it online.

      We keep asking Berkeley to sell us the spools wholesale so we can sell it but so far it hasn’t happened. 🙁

      I will bug Berkeley again so we can sell full spools or even portions for sailors like yourself.

      Enjoy,

        I didn’t want to buy 300 yards of Gorilla Tough 50 pound test and only use 10 feet at most. So today while I was shopping for red spray paint for my new spare rudder at a hobby lobby here in town I found a 300 yard spool of artist 100% nylon thread Size #5. It looks and feels the same as whats on my boat. If it doesn’t work it only cost $2.50. I also have a spool of sail mending thread from West marine that I think will work too.

    I am looking for a replacement rudder for the Nirvana II. Please let me know if you have any available.

    Thank you.

      I am sorry to inform you that unfortunately, we are waiting for the Nirvanas and the extra parts to ship from China. Until we have those, we don’t really have an option for a replacement.

      We have been waiting 3 years for the Nirvanas to run again – finally they are in production but we don’t have a ship date yet. Once they ship out, it will take 5-6 weeks to receive them.

      When we have concrete information that they are on the way, we will start taking preorders for everything Nirvana.

      Thank you for your patience,

    I’m thinking about getting one of these along with the battery charging kit. Do you have them and parts in stock yet?

      We have the Nirvana in stock in blue, red and yellow hulls – ready to ship to you today!

      Here is the situation with the recharge kit for the Nirvana – the newest radio transmitter (part you hold in your hand) does NOT have a plug location to charge the batteries while in the transmitter. So our two lead charger that normally charges batteries in your transmitter AND in the boat will only charge the batteries in the boat. The batteries in the transmitter will need to be taken out and charged in a typical charger you can get from any electronics store.

      Technically, you can swap the charged batteries from the boat to the transmitter and the uncharged from the transmitter to the boat and charge them that way so it still works – just not as easy as it does in other boats or the older Nirvanas.

        OK good. So that means there’s no difference in the 8tx and the 4rx. If so it’s a litter cheaper to buy your charging system than to buy 12 batteries and a charger. Not much but a little. This is my Christmas present so I’m not sure when my wife will order a red one for me. Hopefully you’ll still have some. Thanks for the response. I did a lot of looking and I chose your boat because you’ve been around a while plus you have a lot of parts available or offer suggestions for a fix. You can contact me at my email address anytime.

    I went ahead and ordered my boat and charger. Do you know when you’ll have some rudders in stock? I’d like to have a spare on hand.

    Do you have any nirvana goosenecks? The fitting on the boom is fine but the fitting on the mast broke. Thanks!

      I am sorry to say no. I would love to find a local manufacturer, even a guy in his garage, that could make these for us!

      Let me know if you know of anyone. We would order small quantities so they could be done by hand.

    My Nirvana is a few years old and the sails are coming apart (unglued). Do you have a recommended glue to repair them? Thank you.

      Rick – Adhesive seems to be the part of the sails most affected by sunlight. Always store sails out of the sun, away from windows, etc.

      There are any number of adhesives that will work, but some have found that applying two sided tape was the easiest. Most liquid adhesives that stay flexible after curing like Shoo Goo, Rubber cement, etc., are suitable but getting the adhesive spread evenly and then getting the sail together can be frustrating. I would look in a hardware store for a good two-sided tape no more than 3/4” wide and try that. Tape is the solution we came to use in sail production.

      Hope this helps. Steve
