J92S sort

Recommended Posts

Surprised how long those 92s's last on the market.  Seem like such a great value for a Jboat that size.

Agreed - lot of boat for not a lot of money

Never seen one on the east cost, know of a few 92s (I know one very well in fact) in the NYC area.

I may have the wrong location for Sting - it may be Wickford and not EG. .... other side of the bay from me!

No one at EGYC also, so 3 on the bay

Firstly apologies for the spelling my note should have read "sought" not sort. I have found a J92S on the south coast of England, ferried it up to Scotland and am delighted with it. Thanks for all your suggestions.

Congratulations! Which 92S is it?

GBR 9226R formerly "Just In Time" now renamed "Jenesis".

 

You planning on doing any events? Scottish Series in May always has four or five J92's.

Enjoy the boat. My first boat was a 92 GBR9212R, it did the 1994 Scottish series with Kevin Sproul (then at Hyde). Of all the boats I’ve owned I’d say £ for lbs it was the most versatile and fun. Had a good look at 92S Wizard late last year but owners syndicate didn’t come together sadly.

A 2007 92S has become available at my local club and am seriously considering purchasing it, having an in water survey done tomorrow.  Anything in particular I should be looking for?

I would recommend, based on a recent survey I had done during the purchase of my 2006 J92s:

1) Checking the shaft around the lower rudder bearing for rust/corrosion, inside the hull - no major issue, just needs serviced

2) Checking condition of the sail drive hull gasket and understanding if/when it was replaced.   Mine seems to be original on a 2006 and I will be replacing it before going offshore or distance racing.  Estimating a $3k professional job.

3) Check for minor corrosion around spreader fittings and ends - we buffed and tef-gelled the rigging points during assembly and will be keeping an eye on it.

Overall a very solid boat.   Core on mine was very dry - only monitoring area around the partners (a plate is around the partners - maybe needs rebedding).    My understanding is that factory deck penetrations for hardware were done through glassed-in blocks, so no issues with moisture penetration.
