    Aluminum spreaders

    J-100 Hall carbon rig aluminum spreaders. Spreaders need to be repainted or powder coated . Finish is bubbling cracking off. Anyone have an idea off how to go about refinishing them. I believe the stick was awlgrip so I'm assuming the spreaders are also. Can I just sand prime and awl grip these things.

    Auto Pilot/ tiller pilot

    Any good recomendations for AP for J-100? I was thinking I could try and mount this( Raymarine Evolution EV-100 Tiller Autopilot Pack w/ P70s Control Head Item # : 261326 below deck and just disconnect when not using. Trying to avoid drilling holes and mounting stuff in the cockpit

    Carbon lifeline covers/roller

    Get the pex sticks they are straight. If you get the pex from a coil its very hard to get straight almost impossibly .

    Upgrade/Repair Tacktick system or buy new B&G?

    Also looking to get into new electronics for 32ft sailboat. I also have a 07 original tactic stuff. B&G Triton is what I was thinking of going to replace with. Is the Garmin sail pack also worth a look?

    Best sail combination for J100

    What's your rating? I sail OD jib and 106sqm kite on sprit. I have 85 rating. I get 6 sec for dacron jib or rating would be 79. I can't get credit for smaller spin it is based on spl the J plus length of sprit. If I add bigger head sails I take rating hit and would be back to 79 rating.

    Id prob go symmetrical before that option . I went with a factory refit to sprit in the hull, not cheap but the sprit is longer and not on deck.
