    What is the boat on the left?

    I think the boat in the middle is a OH Rogers 24 or 26.Didn't know Hobie 33s had fixed levels.Did they offer both a fixed keel and a center board?

    What size Tuff Luff for a J/33?

    If the crack is right at the feeder or right at the top of the hoist I'd try cutting that damaged area out.Have done it myself,worked fine.Just file the cut end..
  13. The bow up trim photograph looks like the bow is damaged to me hence the daylight or am I seeing something different from you guys...

    J33 Stories

    My wife and I sailed our new to us J33 quite a bit last year in light air and heavy air.We found it very easy to sail with just the two of us.It has a very solid feel to me versus our old Soverel 33 and much more comfortable. She loves it as do I.Only raced once but smoked the competition in light air.I agree about the feel of neutral helm.Controls pretty well laid out and the only thing tweeked looks to have been the mainsheet controls.
