      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    Minimum dry weight IC 24 is 2550# no mast. What is the avg. weight of your fleet OD J 24’s?

    We will have a 6 boat members X 24 fleet this spring at Stockton Sailing Club. Home of the Delta Ditch Run. All J 24’s are welcome..we will have some toggles to extend your forestay, just leave your Genoa in the car.

    These Martin 24’s once had Genoa’s. The M 24’s we Configured would murder the old Genoa version. If you want a Genoa knock your self out. Photo Dena Kent

    Opens up the cockpit the std. short one is next to useless. SA/Disp. Is too low. And hull shape is too fat and too much rocker for a proper A sail sport boat.
  7. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    J 24 Class min. Hull weight 3031# most PHRF will credit jib 6-9 sec./ mile X 24 upwind with jib SA/D with 600# crew is 23.5 J 24 upwind with Genoa SA/D with 882# crew is 22.36

    Exactly Crash... some fleets are strong others are gone. Cheap boats everywhere. Repurpose them or to the landfill. Fixed forestay length forced many mods that would have been unnecessary with a longer forestay. An example of Repurpose is In PDX, the have 40+ cal 20s all have jibs and spinnakers.

    Our proto boat is saving over 160 lbs. by removing primaries, bow and stern rails, 2 Stantions, traveler. Plumber and freewheelin thx for your input. You can fill the old holes with s s carriage bolts.

    Could call it “Ex 24 if that makes u happy. Ex because your Ex took all your money and all you can afford is just this stinkin tee shirt and J.

    Thx I have seen this. Easier and cheaper mod the J than to replace the deck. but the IC is on the right tack.
  12. X 24 class is a simplified J 24

    Some J fleets are dying...getting rid of the Genoa makes it a 3 man boat. less crew more boats racing. Longer forestay fixes the lack of weather helm. see ic 24. J 24 rules are too restrictive. Staying with standard j 24 sails for now. Post your input. Thx
  13. https://www.facebook.com/X-24-Class-Association-523240304679254/ Putting together a class of slightly modified J 24’s. A 3 sail, 3 person boat with standard J 24 class sails main, Jib and spinnaker. Prototype has no pulpits stern rails just 4 stantions, no primaries, no traveler just bridle, turnbuckle or Furler on forestay. Any ideas on rules or tips to make a simpler boat chime in.
