    J/111 Goes Sailing...

    I always thought those cockpits were rad. Anyone know how many were built with it? Only a few, right?

    That's kinda what I was thinkin with the taller frac rig on a 35 in my post above.

    I always thought a taller frac carbon rig (no checks) and only running non overlapping head sails would be cool for short handing. I really love the 35's but it seems you could do some work to em to make em easier to single hand. Is that dumb? I donno. I'd just hate to be single handing and having to do a heavy 1 to 3 peal at 230 in the morning in weather.

    I was thinking it'd be cool to have the late J35/J33 cockpit. I've always thought I'd want that if I went with a J35 of my own.

    The guy that owned the C&C99 Bzing bought her and is doing a pretty major refit.. or so I've been told.. I think you'd be hard pressed to find any 35's that weren't rode hard for a few years. They all show battle scars by now.. Well, I replaced some of the main sheet hardware almost 10 years ago now and when I pulled the old stuff out lots o punky ply came out with it. You'll find giant backing plates under the secondary winches too. Kind of bandaids on cancer. I loved the old girl though! When I herd she got sold to Nappy, I texted some old crew mates from her about it. I got several replies saying that the new owner would be surprized to hear how many chicks were banged on her. Kind of a floating bordello in her day. I've seen the cockpit completely filled Labatt Blues/Miller High Lifes, Mout Gay bottles, or completely filled with empties. Only to have a very hung over crew kick a chick off the boat and clean it up lickity fuckin tick before the owner shows up. She provided very amaving times for almost 25 years on Lake Champlain. He sent me some pics of the refit.. he's yanked out the whole interior and is starting over. pulled out about 200 lbs of soggy core so far. a lot of it out of the transom.. he's got muller doing the heavy stuff and some of it himself. should turn out to be a pretty sound boat. I'll probably give him a couple old sails to get started with. Bump--your J/35 started life as Kaleidoscope -before it was Split-Decision. Kerry Klingler (UK/Halsey) and his dad raced her out of City Island. We raced against her on Runaway, which is still on the hard at Consolidated Yachts in City Island. I wanted to buy Runaway for years and get the Hustler crew back on the J/35--but the owner is still cruising her occaisionally with his kids and is content to let her rot away--such a shame. the 1998 BIRW was awsome--28 boats on the starting line--it was the 1 design place to be! Pit, you ever race against Mohawk Warrior? Owned by Doc Gorman? Blue boat.... absolutely--great bunch of guys--one of the crew was an actual member of the Mohawk Nation--they sailed the boat down the Hudson from Lake Champlain --and showed up on LIS---good sailors--even better partiers!! Doc was one of the best guys I ever sailed for! I've got some great stories bout him, sailing, partying, and general obgyn humor. He is sorely missed by many. whatever happened to that Mohawk kid who sailed with him--he was a riot? Phil or Marc?
