    Most use the same software for making the sails, so the shapes are awfully similar. yeh right. ridiculous comment, Dave

    J/105 Companionway trim

    used aluminum on a J 22. 4 foot lengths lowes
  10. 32 ft. trimaran competing in a feeder race to Europe 1 STAR "A Busy Month For The U.S. Coast Guard's Vessel Rescue Net Work" Port hull forward cross member had snapped- 700 miles southeast of Nantucket-gale force winds, 20 ft. seas- mast blown down - hulls smashing together. Set series drogue and activated EPIRB - readied life raft and donned survival suit. Skipper David D.: "When something so out of control as this happens there isn't much else you can do other then having a good meal and listening to some Jimmy Buffet" which is what he did. A cargo ship was directed to him by a Coast Guard aircraft and he was picked up about 5 hours later and taken to Norway. Note that he reported no further damage to the boat after the drogue was deployed.

    Older / Smaller J Boats

    J27. Great. Buy one fairly cheap and resell for probably same price few years later. 18 knots daysailing w code zero . Planed at about 16 true wind speed w code zero. Code zero was nothing fancy for fabric, 1.5 oz nylon, but design was by one of the best, my friend Ralph S.

    Jeanne Socrates - nonstop solo RTW 2018

    Looks like sun rotted leech. Perhaps too much time uncovered on boom. Can see the red N is partially faded by uv. Unfortunately, fabric is probably weakened entire leech.
