    J/24 - Tillotson-Pearson vs Performance Sailcraft

    So disappointed you removed your post. Too bad really, I think we share a lot of the same interests. I think we both love sailing. We make our living on boats. I think our strength is, and we get a great reward from making things work better. Yes, two rudders came with the boat. One was wrapped in carbon. We shipped it off to an owner for his PHRF J24. It was never used. Quattro

    J/24 - Tillotson-Pearson vs Performance Sailcraft

    This is what I have been told. Paul Bogataj is the designer of the keel shape. He is a friend and we have had a few conversations about his designs and this boat specifically. Harden used his design and did an over the top job of putting the shape on this boat and one or two others. If you changed it at all you were going against the orders of the new owner. He did ask for the hull epoxy to be touched up (wrinkles) but do not touch the keel. We don't consider your work a factor in the worlds win. sorry Did you put the carbon rudder on the boat? And its unclear in your post, are you claiming this is a Harden keel or your design? The work I did with the owner here in Seattle was about deck layout, mast, mast slider, traveler, lifelines, new rudder, new strings, etc. Quattro

    Varan, I totally agree. It was great to see on many levels. KW did a masterful and complete job of preparing boat and crew. But its not over. We have been discussing more ideas on how to make the boat even better.

    Yes, the boat he boat came from Texas. The keel design was done in the PNW. The credit is due an engineer in Gig Harbor. Several boats here have the same keel. We spent a few weeks improving Furio before Miami.

    But really... The fastest keel on a J24 (current world champion) came from PNW.

    J24 Questions

    You can have a step box and a cooler. Box can be part of dry weight. Cooler can be part of optional equipment. I agree with Dogfish perspective Quattro

    A simple and easy way to know your butt location (that sounds wrong....)

    And as you dial up your game, get the Grand Prix halyards that ctutmark makes. They are super light and wicked cool. Not to mention they are on Furio, current World Champion Quattro

    I loved seeing that pic. Our boat was built by Driscoll Custom Boats. The fourth of four built from designs by S&S. Pemiquid Brushfire Spendor Weatherly. 53 ft loa 37'11" lwl and the only yawl in the group. The perfect boat for us... cocktails for 12, dinner for 4, sleeps 2 Quattro

    J/24 Style Motor Mount

    We made these mounts a little more robust. A couple of boats in our fleet had others that were cracking. Quattro

    J/24 Style Motor Mount

    We needed a new motor mount for our J24. So had four of these built. Made from a J24 boom section. Light and strong. powder coated black. I have one available if you are interested.

    J/24 Adjustable Mast Step

    I designed a new slider and had it built. works great and I have a couple extra if anyone is interested. Our butt slider was distorted and had corrosion under the heel casting. and like most J24 that have raced, the I-beam is full of holes. So I built a new slider, made it longer, so my hole for pinning is in fresh I-beam. Attached a strong point to anchor the turnbuckle. Made a strong anchor point for fixed end. Purchased a new heel casting and a Ronstan turnbuckle for adjustment. I have two available for sale. Quattro

    Zaida, didn't check spelling before posting. The second owner renamed her 'Weatherly' and after a few years we purchased her and brought her to Puget Sound I do think this is a list of the BNs that cared for the boat. I used to call myself a BN, now my tax return says 'Yacht Technician' I posted this in hopes someone might know them or a relative. Just to say thank you, and recognize their good work.
