    "On the Hard" because I hardly ever sail anymore. I'm like that old Cal 29 that has been sitting on jack stands for the last 4 years in the back of the boat yard.

    Daysailer for old people

    I was unimpressed until I saw the underbody. Very cool concept. That would do well in my home waters, breezy and shallow. not 100% sure of the gaff rig but I could try it for a while. It would be fun to smoke boats that thought it looked slow and stodgy.

    Sorry if I missed it, but what did you get? Lucky bastard

    Aviation training or Corpus? It was a nice little town back then, but of course, I was only 8. But if you were hanging out in the redneck bars, well....

    This isn't so much mocking, as much as just makes me want to cry. I can only imagine what this once fine boat must be like now

    Corpus for sure. SPI is damn near as far as Dallas from San Antonio. Besides, Corpus is my hometown. The wind is incredibly reliable there as well, which is a nice bonus

    I've never been on either, so I appreciate the color and perspective. I saw the 115 on the docks in Clear Lake and it is a really nice looking boat. If I was ready to retire I just might do it, but I know I'd wind up not using it as much as I want, stuck up here in San Antonio

    Why did J Boats drop the J100?

    Just curious, do you follow all of the rituals on renaming? I've never done it but this was hilarious! https://www.discoverboating.com/resources/ceremony-for-renaming-your-boat

    Holy Smokes! Great pics! I love the gold bottom paint against the green topsides. I've never seen that combination on a boat before and looks awesome. If you are a Packers fan it would be even better

    Coolboats to admire

    Truth be told, I never in my life sailed on one until we did a chartered Beneteau back in 2019. If you aren't racing, it's kinda nice.

    IF i was to embark on that project, I'd definitely modify to make less racy. Reinstall the table, add dodger and bimini for sure. Not much I can do about the V-Berth but offer to sleep on that side. I'd probably buy it expecting to spend 4-5 nights a year on it and spend 1 if I'm lucky. My real lust boat is a well kept J-109 though. Probably a little more livable and owners in the JBoats forum seem to love them. But this one is close by and more affordable, so appealing in those respects Definitely agree about hoots and this would probably provide plenty, particularly in a Corpus Christi breeze!

    Somewhere other than the middle of my cocktail table. I've seen lots of boats over the years and that's a first. But if that's what the owner wants, then who am I to criticize?

    Hitting that link resulted in some interesting boats. This one is definitely a cool boat to admire! But a winch on the cockpit table? WTF https://frenchwebb.weebly.com/erica.html Gorgeous boat though

    Mostly day sailing, but want the ability to make a weekend out of it. Longer than that and I'd have to single-hand!
