    Physics of sail power.

    Your head hurts just reading it.

    Why did J Boats drop the J100?

    Spoken like someone who's never won anything in their entire life! Oh yeah and go fuck yourself.

    Retro Boat - Olson 30?

    Great article. Would like to see the differences between PH and a standard O30.

    Why did J Boats drop the J100?

    I didn't mention anything about ratings. For a 33 footer designed 20 years after the J29 its barely faster boat for boat. Weather the owner wants to race it or not, most boat owners take pride in a good performing boat. To say or think otherwise is silly.

    Why did J Boats drop the J100?

    That full width bulkhead at the mast contributes tremendously to the stiffness of the boat and ties in the mast step and chainplates. Most early J's have it, I wouldn't want to get rid of it. The 100's never sold that well, and part of the problem is their performance. Its a 33 footer that's barely faster than a J29.(at least on W/L) The only 100's I've seen do extremely well were the "Good Girl/Bad Girl" twins but they were pretty highly modified and sailed by rock stars.

    J29 Firesale!

    Hustler has kicked enough ass in large OD fleets in her day to last a lifetime. I'm sure Espo was just making a point racing PHRF. You were either very happy he changed classes or you were very upset. And he gave up gold chains years ago............now that he shaves all his body hair for cycling the look isn't the same!

    Most likely they got them the old fashioned way............by inheritance.
  12. When Clean lived there Charleston was the best thing since sliced bread........now that he doesn't not so much. At the time North Charleston was one of the most dangerous cities in the country for violent crime. My nephew almost got attacked while riding a bike from COC after visiting a girl he knew from up north(while we were racing there) I agree with his comments on southern racism though. People don't even think twice about using the N word or making dispariging comments.

    what's your top boatspeed in a J boat?

    What he's saying is if you have 3 knots of current behind you, your max BS will read 3 knots greater than what the boat is actually sailing.(or if its against you 3 knots less, or a component of that number if the current is at an angle to your boat) Current infuenced top end boat speeds don't count. That being said, most knotmeters aren't accurately calibrated either!

    Ericson 35? Ed is mooching for pickle dishes

    OK Espo! So this is your new sock puppet? Warner wolf was outed?

    Ericson 35? Ed is mooching for pickle dishes

    I have heard that, but like you said not all boats were bumped. I guess they assumed that no boats over 90 would ever sail against boats that rate lower than 90? With todays smaller fleets that might be hard to do. A J29 MHOB at 120 sailing against a J109 at 69-72 will win every race(assuming W/L)
