    Archambault 35 cracked frames

    Can confirm this. Twice had boats repaired. One with single laminate bottom and another with cored vinylester laminate. Both better than new after the repair.

    J97 Tuning Hints

    Considering the optimal shorthanded setup for a J97. To start with, I hate changing headsails. Currently we have a reefable full size jib, specified to cope with 30kts of wind if necessary. Very nice sail. In addition we have some older North M/H jib and a true heavy jib, with 1,5m short luff. Downwind we have North A2 and masthead kite which is about 85% of the A2. Uncertain what the correct classification is of this one. Currently I am considering what to add for the optimal shorthanded setup for distance sailing in the Baltic sea, e.g. mostly light winds. And again, I hate changing sails so I prefer sails which have wider usage possibilities. Options: 1. J0 from sprit on a furler with an additional clew patch. Could go upwind and reach, but is not optimal for twa 70-100 especially if designed for going upwind? 2. C0 from sprit on a furler. Not for upwind but better in really light and is better on open reaches? Other ideas? What would you prefer and why?
  3. Yep, tested today at the boat and the wiring in the picture works...
  4. Is this wiring diagram really right? Should you not "create" the new NMEA2000 backbone from the blue connector on the seatalk1 to SeatalkNG converter? Can you really do it from a spur(white) connector?

    Hull color J/122?

    Do J-boats use the same white gelcoat across all models?
  6. I’ve scraped the bottom to remove trilux. Successfully so except for the 20-30cm closest to the waterline which is more or less impossible to remove. Scraper does nothing, 40-grit paper the same. Any ideas? Is this common? Paint remover? Heating it up?

    World sAiling has spoken...who's listening?

    Agree, the offshore DH concept is compelling but the L30 just looks terrible regardless of which sailors have testsailed it. Would have a J/99, dehler 30 or figaro 3 any day instead of the L30

    J/99 anyone have info beyond the teaser?

    Plus a slab reef in the M jib or a dedicated HWJ?

    what's your top boatspeed in a J boat?

    13 knots in a J/97 22knots at twa 160, small waves. Only J sailed so far.

    Brw, is beam really 2.87m vs 3.35 for the J/97? 2.87 on a 10.0m boat is quite narrow and would indeed require serious RM from the keel(?) which in this case is 1.75m deep.

    Agree. Not much of a difference to J/97 which weighs in at 3,9. Less rocker and perhaps a bit more sail area but otherwise only small differences except for the internal layout.

    New wireless wind transducer from B&G

    Indeed I have the ST60 wind display and seatalk NG to seatalk converter. I was just wondering if it will make use of the wind data from the Seatalk bus or if it is hardcoded to use the wind data from the transducer port on the back side of the display?

    New wireless wind transducer from B&G

    Will the ST60 wind display show data coming from a wfs320 over NMEA2000=>Seatalk or does it need its own dedicated wind transducer in which case I would need to dump it for a triton 2 display?

    New Mainsail - what sailmaker What Type

    Why fully battened? Not fun in light winds and weighs a ton decreasing stability.

    J97 Tuning Hints

    Supposedly making the waterline longer then for upwind and reaching? The J/97 bow indeed floats quite high:
