    J/111 as a Multipurpose Boat?

    Where is a good place to search for listings other than YachtWorld? I checked the association website but there weren’t any listings there. There is one in California.

    J/111 as a Multipurpose Boat?

    How much is a new J/111? Doesn’t seem to be many used ones up for sale
  3. Just did my first SH race on my J92. It was pretty easy to handle in sub 10 knots. Did a few gybes, doused to the companionway. Very balanced upwind. Easy peezy.

    Replace Balsa J92

    I hope nobody rolls an ankle, I meant them to keep the crew safer. The wedges are 3x3. Before it was just 1x1 square coamings that were too easy to slip off - especially dangerous going down the lee side to ease the jib. Maybe I will paint the top of each wedge a contrasting colour. Fun project but took way longer than I thought it would.

    My winter project almost done - replaced soft core, glassed in foot wedges, then kiwi gripped

    Replace Balsa J92

    I have a 1 x 2 ft patch to do in the cockpit of my J/92. Planning to do it from above and was wondering the cloth layup to use? Also I was going to try and do this at the dock under my boom tent, rather than hauling, taking out the mast and finding shelter. Am I asking for trouble?
