    what's your top boatspeed in a J boat?

    North of 14 Knots on a J27...although they have been clocked at better than 17...not bad for a 30+ year old design

    J29 or J27

    27...Cheap Speed...way cheaper to buy, transport and fund a program. Race competetivly with 4 crew...old class rules were 1,100 lbs I was pacing a J35 downwind in 20 knots this summer...likes anything over 5 knots of air. Base PHRF Rating of 120 I had the same questions when I bought mine 16 years ago... still haven't found a better boat bang for buck and can sell it today for what I paid for it in 2002

    Is there a new wiki site for the J27?

    Shakedown #103/Jon Enwright aka The New Guy from Oswego was unstoppable...and won it easily. I was able to salvage a 2nd...4 points ahead or Warped Perception...the boat formerly known as Northern Seitz was 4th. Will post full results and link to photos once I have them...

    J/27 rig tensions

    Rig Tensions/Setup are pretty much universal we've found...whether they are Doyle, Quantum, UK or North...some discussions arouind Norht liking the Butt of the mat a bit further foward (i.e. Back of mast 8" forward of the main bulkhead as measured at the butt) Remember the idea is to have neutral helm when sailing totally flat...match the bend of the mast to the curve on the main..

    J/27, newbie questions

    Jane... Checked the Wiki...infact you have Hull #20. Would have to see photos of your traverler setup but no, there is no pin to lock the traveller in place. Sounds as if you have a Windward Sheeting Traveller Car so it's only designed to cleat on one side at a time. ... Andrew
