I am sending pictures of the Rebel #123 that we would like posted in the Rabble. We bought the boat in 1951 directly from Ray Greene at the factory on Byrne Road, Toledo.     I started to restore the boat in 1992 so the fiberglass on the deck has been removed along with all the  mahogany trim and floorboards. Boat has always been in dry storage. We are located on Devils Lake, Michigan. There is no trailer. I can be reached at 419-722-3861 for further questions.

Please excuse the unflattering pictures of the inside. We removed the floorboards with the intention of replacing them, and my friend stores some of the old boards in the boat so we could measure our cuts. We intended to finish that bit before putting it on the market, but are happy to see it go to a good home either way.

 - Was owned by family friends at the Jackson Clark Lake Yacht Club

- Rigged for racing (I actually used to race against this boat)

- Needs new floors and lines

- Comes with an articulating trailer in solid shape

- Comes with four sets of sails ( Two are good, two are fair)

- $800/obo all in.

Description: Rebel 4160 "First Nickel" is up for sale. It is the first Nickels Rebel ever built and remains highly competitive. Fixing the boat up over the past few years was a labor of love with a ton of TLC, new parts, and overall refurbishment. Key new parts include rudder blade, tiller, hiking stick, many lines (including split bridal mainsheet), whisker pole, and rub rail all around. Other key items such as boom internals and mast have been refurbished as well. Includes a cover (some mends but otherwise fine shape), a set of Shore Sails (older but fine shape), and a galvanized (non Nickels) trailer. Asking $3,250 OBO. Please call Tim Nickels at (810) 515-0896 or email

My brother and I need to sell Minnie. Her number is #1562 a Ray Greene, mid 1950's, and not as rough as many others I've seen purchased over the years.  Her sails are perfect.  The trailer is a LONG.  The mast had been kept indoors over the years, but she does need sanding and paint.  Floor boards are gone. Boat and trailer $750.

Boat is still in Melfa VA. Chesapeake Bay area
