Unkown Boat

Recommended Posts

I was driving thought a different part of town and saw this boat. Does anyone know what it is? Sailboats tend to be rare here in New Mexico.

Really ? Help ID'ing the ubiquitous J/24, the most-produced racing keel boat of all time ? Even in NM that's like not recognizing a Ford Mustang.

 

Christ, after the Zombie acopalypse the only things lift will be crabgrass, cockroaches and J/24s.

This place has totally gone to hell.

 

A noob shows up, asks what a freakin' J24 is, and not one 'Fuck Off' or 'we'll tell you for tits'.

 

My cat died about 6 months ago and I'm still sad, can someone hold my hand?

 

Sheesh

Is that the J/24 no. 2845 (598 on one mainsail), "Red Shift" at New Mexico Tech in Socorro? (tan topsides until Aug. '08, then orange/red, then the red and blue "shift" topsides as shown in the earlier link) One of the deans owned it, let some of the Tech kids have it for sailing, but then they ran off and got into Ballroom Dancing and got married and started having kids and stuff. New Mexico has about 15 or more J/24s, but only about three of them have been on the water in the past year.

Not sure whether that boat used to be on the Texas Circuit or I saw it in Colorado...but I have raced against it in Texas.

Paint job theoretically represents Doppler shift.

There is only one true Red Shift and it's right here in Nanaimo.

That paint job is seriously weird looking....

 

I disagree.....when up on a plane it looks awesome.

 

this one is hull #87,541, and the little history I know was that it wasn't much used, as the owner realised (after purchase) that New Mexico wasn't blessed with too much of a coast line.

Safest place for a J24: well inland.
