      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

J22 tiller and extension

Recommended Posts

Had a tough race last weekend. Tiller ended up delaminating and the tiller extension decided it had bit the bullet.

Need a little advice from the J22 sailors.

1. Seems there are two tiller options. Option #1 is a 43 inch curved model. Option #2 is a 47 inch straighter model.

Which seems to be the better choice? And given that choice, what would be the best tiller extension to purchase. I prefer that the tiller extension be removable when no in use.

Thanks guys. You always know what's best.

Personal preference. I happen to like the curved "Karls tiller". You will want to play with both and see what you like. I know when I get on a boat with a stright tiller it drives me crazy.

 

For extension I use the fat carbo unit and cut it to my length, I forget, but it is long enough to get me forward in light air but not too long to get caught in the backstay (yes backstay). For the universal, consider switching to the jcd, it has a piece of line inside of it in case of failure.

 

Nickelsboats.com has their version of the fatso extension, it is their second version and really nice. Ask for Ryan.

I have a stock, nearly unused J24 tiller from a latish boat. I am fairly sure that a J24 tiller is interchangeable with a J22. PM if you want it and it's yours -- just reimburse me for the shipping charge.

Every now and then you meet someone who is above the crowd. While I haven't met him (face-to-face) but I have met a really good dude. His name is Chris Doyle. I put this post on JAnarchy looking for information about a tiller and a tiller extension and Chris sent me a memo offering me a brand new J22 tiller that he had as an extra. He offered the tiller for free and to beat that he shipped it and paid for the shipping. He isn't asking me to reimburse him for the shipping. Can you imagine that? I think he needs to change his name to Class Doyle. Well, if anyone out there is dealing with Class Doyle I want to tell you that you are dealing with just that CLASS.

Thanks Chris,

Jim Keeley

P.S. Like I said, you are on the Xmas Card mailing list.

Just wanted to let you know that a SA reader has sent me a J22 tiller, at no cost. So, I just wanted you to know that while I appreciate your offer, I don't need that tiller. Maybe someone else out there needs it. But, thanks very much for your offer. I was appreciated.
