    J27 class site

    Note that my old Nut Case web site for J27 #150 is back up and running in a new location. http://www.hoytsailing.com/J27Web/Index.html The Projects page documents the initial process of re-coring the deck in several places and may be of interest. This was one of the links on the wiki page. Mike Persistence, 1987 Frers 33 #16 www.hoytsailing.com

    Are boat shoes cool?

    Croc actually has a boat shoe that has a very grippy sole. Mens Beach Line Boat shoe is what they call them. They have been discontinued

    How make a cruising boat fast for racing?

    why not just buy a small race boat as a second boat? A used J80 would likely cost much less than new sails on a 37 footer. Use that for your normal racing and enjoy the bene when you want comfort or distance events where the waterline length is more important

    Modified Dip Pole?

    On a dip pole the outboard end is not supposed to cross above the pulpit. Inboard end up and outboard end down near deck level. You should be able to easily convert your pin stop car to block and line. Usually is a way to lock the pin in open position. Mike

    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    I would sail around the world in a SJ24. Of course I would have it lashed down in the hold of a very large freighter ....
