    J/33 or J/105?

    From a daysailing prospective the 105 is so much easier than the 33 roller furling 100% jib. Wife and kids will love that. If sails are brought at fall discount they are more like $4000 each on average. You can be competitive buying just 3 or 4 . The AP jib is good for just about any range, mainsail, and kite. Your second kite is just going to be one of your old ones,. If you have the money you will buy the light jib but sailing PHRF it is still hard to win under 8. Racing one design you would need it to keep up with the others. A 105 can be competitively sailed with 5 people not so easy with the 33. I was the first boat in Buffalo 2 years ago and now we are up to 5.

    J/33 or J/105?

    I own a 105 and race against both J/33 and J/35. We race in the od configuration at 90 the J/33 is 84 and the J/35 is 72. To win in under 8 it is very hard. You need to sail a perfect race and the others to have problems. In 8-12 any of the boats could win. If it over 12 the 105 is pretty hard to beat on handicap and many times we beat them boat for boat.

    Do not know about when US Watercraft took over building the J80 but they built my J105 and it is outstanding compare to other TPI 105.

    PHRF is not run by self-interested clowns

    Well if you don’t like your PHRF rating you could do what the Farr 40 guy did in Buffalo. He held his own awards banquet and gave himself all first and boat of the year.

    J 105 Halyard

    I have my main on port and jib and spinnaker on starboard. If halyards are in good shape they no not slip. You need to make sure the clutches are fully engage by pressing down on the cam with your fingers under the handle.

    J 105 Halyard

    Behind is the general consensus. I have the drawing from sparcraft which does not show the halyard feeds. I lost my spinnaker halyard recently and drop a new one down the mast. On takedown the halyard is getting jammed and only upon release of main halyard doe it unjam. I going to re-feed it as I am thinking last time it twisted with the main halyard.

    J 105 Halyard

    Does anyone know if the spinnaker halyard goes behind the spreader bar or in front?

    J105 sheets and halyard

    Will, I have been using Todd for years he has already done the Tack line and Spin Halyard this year soon to do a main Halyard. Highly recommend him.

    J105 sheets and halyard

    Those specs are okay unless you have a sparcraft mast then you need to add 10 ft to the spinnaker halyard as it goes all the way to the top of the mast.

    phrf handicap J105

    jerseyguy I brought my 105 for the same reason. I am the only one in Buffalo and race in the one design configuration. All sails are tagged, no PHRF rule beaters. We rate at 90 and race against 3 J/35 PHRF of 72 and 2 J/33 PHRF of 84. We find the rating to be very fair. PHRF LE hits the boat with a 15 seconds if you add the 155 jib and the 110 spinnaker. We find this unnecessary and defeats many of the reasons we brought the 105 to begin with.
