    Stanchion Base

    For a 122. I doubt it a custom part.

    Stanchion Base

    Anybody know the source for this stanchion base for a french built J-Boat? The stud base snapped off. I tried J-Boats but not have heard back from them.

    J-120 Or X-119?

    See my post in the other j-120 thread about other 120 issues. I owned on for 10 years and did have any core issues. Did not really hear of that problem with the 120. Gelcoat crazing was definitely a problem around the 2001 model years. It was somewhat of an industry wide problem including powerboats.

    Look on the Jboats owners site. There may be one there.
  6. I owned one for 10 years. What hull numbers are you looking at? Hulls 1 thru 24 keel sumps were not SCRIMPED in and were targeted for a factory refit. You need to check to see if this had been done. Check the rudder bearings as the early ones had Harken which were prone to failure and the rudder falling out. Replace with the PYI ones. Make sure the rudder has a safety pin installed as at least one fell out and the boat sank. ( I believe the boat was on Lake Pontchartrain). The boat was dried out and was on the market a few years ago. Not sure what hull no it was. The sea water strainer vent loop was placed on top of the engine and leaked seawater onto the motor making the motors looking rusty. I moved mine and my motor looked good. The TPI boats were of average build quality. I liked mine and it is a great sailing boat.

    J/99 vs. J/111 for DH racing

    Congrats, the 111 is a nice ride. I was just trying to set the record straight for others who are looking to compare the two. Comparing a 120 to a 122 is like trying to compare a 109 to your 111.

    J/99 vs. J/111 for DH racing

    Nothing could be further from the truth. I have owed and raced both. 2 totally very different boats. Each has its own strengths and weakness.

    I know it is like asking someone to name their favorite child, but ask him what his favorite Jboat design is.

    X41 vs J/122

    That's exactly my opinion of a 122 after owing and racing one for 5 years. Light air, W/L is its sweet spot.

    X41 vs J/122

    I find that hard to believe. Are you thinking of a 120? Very different boats.

    X41 vs J/122

    The 122 likes light air. It will outpoint most other boats in its class. I have never raced it offshore.
