I do wish J-boats the very best. I like this new boat and look forward to seeing performance numbers soon. It will probably go upwind better than most Jboats and be really fast on the reaches.. Lets see how it compares to "General Lee" and "Alfresco" the Bakewell-White 36 - that boat busted out 28 knots on a broad reach with an Aso up.. really fast.. Good Luck Alan. Wish you the very best !! Thank you, Les the Sailorman...Hemet, Calif. ps: another hip operation coming soon...bummer..
