    Hey Larry. Glad to hear about your mast and what didn't happen. We are re-doing our sheaves on our mast this fall. Standard offshore rig--two jibs inside and two spins dangling. What did you use to replace OEM? I cant remember whether you or Wild Bill (or both) replaced them recently. Many thanks, Tony

    Hey Baddog. You posted about getting together a little early season tuning class on the mid-west coast. Anything come of it? I got Mort all fired up for this season and we would probly make the trip across the mitten for an April wknd.

    Good God, that's dredging up some ancient history--did time on Road Warrior, then Lorimar in the late 80's. I am beginning to feel like an old shit.

    Six of the J-39 cockpits, according to the horse's mouth.

    There were several wheeled J-35s: Obsession in Detroit was one. A bit o extra weight in the ass, but decent boats nontheless

    There was a J35 named Warlord that t-boned a santana(?) and sank it several years ago. . .I'd like to see pics of that:blink:

    Bzing--nice job--we had many a good times racing against the old Obsession--I think that we are in for a similar refit this fall.

    That would be the "crew discount."

    Hi Larry--we only had six on the line in 2008 (Touch of Grey was there, but had no crew and cruised out on friday). Add in the cost of the whitefish dinner and a couple hundred bucks for hookers at the Gold Front, it just got too expensive with minimal class participation. If we could have added Bozo, Hokua or you guys to the mix (as well as all of the other eastside 35's--Griffin, Gold, Snipe, Rowdy, Ragtime), it would have at least lowered the price for hookers. . . Besides, I got tired of Wild Bill or those More Cowbell guys controlling that damn blender. I'd be happy to help resurrect it, but it seems that there is substantial interest in going to Erie this year. Maybe 2011?

    One of the ones going upwind looks like 41744, the Usual Suspects out of Toronto. No longer sailing. As was stated earlier, they have gone to the dark side and now have a J-105 of the same name. Wow, that old kevlar is really gold.

    This is done deal. The previous owner took fantastic care of this boat and I consider myself lucky to have found her...now all I have to do is learn how to sail it.... Cool boat--I remember that it was never raced that hard. Did you buy it from the original owners? Good luck with the learning curve: more touches=better performance.

    Who just sold their J35 from Detroit to LIS? JPD in SA is looking for ground transport. . .

    Hi all from Port Huron. We have a few J35s left from the original fleet: Major Detail, Steelin Gold and Griffin. Ragtime is across the border in Sarnia, I think, althouggh it hasn't been out to race. Original owners on Detail and Gold from the glory days.
