J29 “Reactor”

J29 Seeking Practice Sails

Recommended Posts

J29 frac recently rescued from Hawaii impound pier seeks set of practice / transport sails. This accomplished racer was  stripped by meth colony over five year period of neglect. Boat has now been safely transported to a federal facility where rehabilitation is underway, and new owner is seeking set of practice/transport sails to support blue water transport for upcoming bottom job. 

Unable to contact J29 class since webpage has not been maintained since 2014 and host is unresponsive. 
 

If you know of the whereabouts of a J29 fractional owner who might have a basement full of old sails, please reply. 
 

Highest priority is a J29 mainsail since the boat is currently equipped with a non-conforming main that won’t hoist without bosun’s chair assist. 
 

Also seeking spinnaker, and #3 jib for training purposes.

Congrats on the new boat! 

The J29 frac rig is almost identical to the J30 rig dimensions so you might want to take a look at the J30 class website.

Almost as in horseshoe and hand grenades

Try contacting Chip Buck of Point Sails. He own a J/29 FROB “Shadow” and may have some old sails he may part with. My old sails from my MHOB won’t do you any good...

Chuck thanks for the info! Any chance you can help me with a model number/make of the OB bracket that you have on your boat? Reactor came with a badly compromised frankenbracket and I worked on it this weekend, so it is safe now but I need to install the proper assembly. Would you be willing to help me with that?

This is what came on my boat.

Depending on what your plans are for the boat, this may be a bit overkill.  If you plan to take the engine off to race and it’s light enough you could get a smaller fixed mount and position it to match the shaft length on your outboard.
