  1. on the small end of your range a J/92 ticks all those items on the list. Maybe the nav station is a stretch.

    Deep Frying Turkey Aboard

    I can assure you it did not take 2 days for the shits to arrive. luckily they did not actually eat much of it, just stuck their heads in there. both, long haired dogs as well to make it much grosser.

    No, the dogs were completely sober. Oh... you mean me? possibly

    Deep Frying Turkey Aboard

    I did one a few years ago and it was so quick and delicious. the only down side was I left the oil out to cool and forgot about it. 5 hours later when we let the dogs out they got into it and their heads got covered in peanut oil. Super gross.

    There is a j/92 in the classifieds that would check all those boxes

    Turning it upside down

    Yup that was the viper when I first got it and the bottom was a mess. I think I could probably do the J the same way if necessary but I'm hoping it doesn't come to that

    Turning it upside down

    It really depends on what kind of equipment you have access too. here is how I did mine. I think the same maneuver could be done with chain hoists and a stout frame. When I rolled it back upright I put plastic sleeves on the straps to protect the paint.

    what's your top boatspeed in a J boat?

    I assume the 125 right?

    Sailors Powerboat

    Yes, lots of storage under all seating. I was skeptical about the jockey seats when I first bought it, but they are actually very comfortable.

    Show your boat not sailing

    In that pic its Baltoplate. this year I switched to Petit Black Magic and so far I'm very pleased with it. Red fleece fender covers were my first purchase when I got the boat

    Now that's a good looking boat.
