    J34c for sale-Add in Classified

    If I remember right, there were a couple built with deep draft. I saw each for sale a few years ago on yachtworld. Don't know where they are now, but I would like to sail one.

    J22 Rudderhead - vertical cracks from tiler bolt?

    I suspect wet core, then frozen if you are from up north. I have had to deal with frozen core cracking before. DD
  4. Where can you buy a 2 bolt lifting eye for a J/22? Thanks DD

    Sealing starboard to deck

    I need a bit of expert advise on sealing a new taff rail to my aft deck joint. I have cut and fit the new one from 1" King Starboard and plan to mechanically fasten from below with screws but what should I use to seal to the deck? All help is appreciated. DD

    source for oval head bronze tapping screws

    I have looked at Jamestown, but will give them a call to see if I am just missing them. Never thought about Fawcetts; will check with them also. Thanks DD
  8. I am trying to find a source for oval head phillips bronze tapping screws as used on all jboats through the 80's and 90's. Looking for several sizes in small quantities of ~100. Any ideas? Thanks, DD

    J/22 rules changes

    New rule changes for J/22's will allow loose footed mains and full top batten jibs. What impact will this be? Big advantages for either?

    New North J/22 tuning guide

    I talked with Mike Marshall last year at the J22 Midwinters about rig setup. He spent about 30 minutes on our boat looking, measuring, and discussing how to set up these boats. Production boats are not all alike as everyone knows and as such, adjustments have to be made to accommodate these differences in keel location, mast location, and crew. His point about lee helm in 5-6 knots of breeze is just an indicator for correct forestay length to establish rig/blade balance. As breeze builds so does weather helm. I am no expert in the J22 but I will tell you I learned more about rig tune in 30 minutes with Mike than in all my previous studies. I will tell you this also, as a newbie in the J/22 class I have been impressed with these class experts that are willing to spend time on the boat getting us out of the back. Over the last 3 years we have had Mike, Allan Terhune, Terry Flynn, Galen Freeman, Benz Faget and others take time from their days at regattas to help and answer questions to improve our skillset. There are not many sports in the world where a total amateur can compete in the same events with national/world champions and get help and attention from these top people. BTW, none of these guys ever promoted their own sails unless I asked them to give feedback on why North, Quantum, etc. were better than others. Just my 2 cents..........
