    J-27 vs J-80

    It's not, because I now own Amethyst. He's probably looking at the one for sale in the SA classifieds.

    J-27 vs J-80

    I own and race a J27 and have crewed extensively on J80s for many years. Both boats are a blast to sail. I also day sail my 27. I bought the J27 rather than an 80 because it has a real cockpit and cabin for day sailing, something that you might want to consider with young/new sailors on board. The division that I race in at my club is me (PHRF 126) and 3 very well sailed J80s (PHRF 122 w/ 135% #2). Sometimes we're close, sometimes we're not. I usually race the 27 with 4, have done it with 3, 5 is best to keep it flat. We have gone with 3 on the 80, 4 is best to keep it flat.

    Restoration Ron Holland IOR racer Flirt of Paget (2)

    I've been following this and Larry's thread for a while. Great project! While cleaning the basement this winter, I came across my early 80's collection of Yachting magazine. I couldn't resist browsing through them before I throw them out. I found this ad for FOP in the brokerage section of the October 1984 issue. Interestingly, a lot of the boats over on Larry's thread appear in the articles and in the brokerage section.
