    new Pogo 36 - any intel?

    I meant the 36, any facts then?

    new Pogo 36 - any intel?

    Any real world intel on the light wind performance? The boat looks beautiful but we often have light winds in my area so it would be good to understand if she is glued to the waters in those conditions like previous Pogos?

    Boat sales in the US vs Europe

    Snottiest yacht club over here: 1000E to join, 190 per year, 700 for the mooring for a 32 foot sailboat during summer, 300e winter space up on land. 100e per lift. included access to the 10 island harbours the club owns or rents.
  4. The J97 we own has a Sparcraft mast which seems to be lacking both cabling and the actual navigation light which normally is ~3m up the mast on the front side. Considering this might be an illegal combination if I have to motor during night times, is there any available battery-powered navigation light which would mount easily and work for this purpose?

    J97 Tuning Hints

    Yes, was considering to either increase purchase or install a clutch on port side of cabin (starboard has one for the tackline). SK78 6mm pure dyneema for the bobstay. Still looking to here if there are other solutions than introducing a new clutch in order to change the outhauler rope?

    J97 Tuning Hints

    No one really interested here in J/97 it seems. Well I will continue this as a documentation thread in any case for future reference. I managed to install barbers for the sheets to be used with the code coming from the toggles at the shrouds, no problem. I also installed a bob stay by removing the U-bolt at the end of the sprit, replacing it with a huge ring and then drilling a hole in the bow at the bottom of the anchor locker. So far so good. I then decided to check it by stretching it using the halyard/tackline. Then I noticed the ring was coming up from the bowsprit regardless of how I adjusted the stop knot. Conclusion was that the sprit outhauler is stretching. It seems to be a 6-8mm polyester rope as a 2:1 configuration. Decided to swap and make it 4:1 at least for the high compression loads due to the bobstay. Easier said than done though as it seems that the end of the outhauler is attached in the front of the watertight laminated sprit box with the inspection hatch being in the back end. Any suggestions other than sawing a hole and installing a new hatch in the front part of the sprit box in order to be able to change the rope?

    Tweakers for C0/J0

    I might have left out stating that its a quite flat C0/J0 ending at the shrouds. I ended up with a dyneema schackle through the toggle, single block with becket in the schackle, holt 40mm snatch block with low friction ring lashed to it for 2:1. As the shrouds are outboard the tweakers work for the jib as well on reaches.

    Tweakers for C0/J0

    I have a 46m2(from pole to shrouds) C0/J0 coming for our J97 and was advised by my sailmaker to use the normal asymmetric sheets but install tweakers to adjust the twist. It seems likely that 2:1 would be needed to be able adjust by hand. I ran into the new Antal barber blocks (with built in ring for 2:1) but frankly 150€/block is a lot and I am also a bit concerned about having a setup with heavy/bulky/expensive snatch blocks in a fixed installation on both sides. Attachment point planned so far is the toggle at the shrouds but again with a fixed installation I would then need to run the tweaker line back to the cockpit and have another cleat there (new hardware, holes in the deck and so on again...). Any better more lightweight(smaller footprint) ideas on how to solve the problem?

    DIY carbon Bowsprit - best approach?

    Thanks, A lot of good ideas. In your proposal, would I first laminate the "nose", remove it from the bow, then glue the prodder to it and then increase the thickness of the nose and laminate around(and join to the nose) the prodder in one go? I was considering some overlap over the deck and would like to have the same level on the prodder as the part of the nose overlapping the deck and was wondering what is the best order of laminating to achieve that.

    DIY carbon Bowsprit - best approach?

    Thanks, The J/97 obviously has a retractable sprit and I was mostly targeting the easier landings with the prodder and then flying a code comes as a bonus. And yes, a bobstay is of course necessary. The easier landings however means that the prodder would be walked on frequently so some vertical loads which was why I was considering a small vertical "knee" which would rest against the bow, but in principal I would for estetic reasons like to avoid this.

    DIY carbon Bowsprit - best approach?

    Hi, I was thinking about this for or J/97 for code/J0 and for landings against cliffs in the archipelago around here(quite typical). I was wondering if the following could work? Make the prodder, fixed sprit first out of appropriate(balsa, foam, something else?) core material and shape it properly against the bow level with the deck height. Add a knee in core material underneath the sprit for vertical loads if needed). Sand and round corners. Cover the bow with PVC or similar which laminate does not stick to. Fix the core piece to the bow somehow and laminate against the bow and around the core and finish with peel-ply. Remove from bow and cut the laminate to shape on top of the deck so it follows the lower part close to the side, and cut below the bowsprit so it gets for example ~10cm of support from the bow. Sand and paint with topcoat. Bolt and potentially glue to bow. So essentially using the bow of the boat as a male plug as far as I can see. Could this work?

    Sun Fast 3300

    So to conclude, both the SF3300 and JPK seem to have their fan base but the J99 is lacking support? In my eyes the JPK and SF both look good but would probably choose the JPK. The J99 is a bit conservatively designed and probably not as slippery as the other two?

    Sun Fast 3300

    So, how do the j99, sun fast 3300 and JPK1030 finally compare in boat speed and popularity?

    J97 Tuning Hints

    Anyone who has installed barbers for the assymetric/spi sheets on a J/97 and would have tips on the best setup?

    J97 Tuning Hints

    Thanks for the advice (last Summer). Anyone with picks from the foot upwards of J/97 jibs? Would be interesting to see the shape especially of a North J1. Ordered a C0/J0 crossover(47m2 mid girth ~63%) for light wind beating and reaching in all other conditions. Will fly it off the end of the sprit and furl on a Facnor FX.
