As the class turns...


There is only one Snapper here on SA. Please refer to Snapper95 as such!




True, the handsome one and the ugly one. 


Snapper95 is hereby retiring in deference to the true, ugly representation of Snapper.  ;)


You have the conn, realSnapper ™

True, the Mid-Pacific Gyre is home to thousands of abandoned K6's, Viper's, Melges, Open 6.5's, SB20's - all sucked right out underneath from their helpless crews by King Neptune Himself.

Buy a VX One, throw it in the Bay and start lapping the J/70's. Make sure they see a few sets and douses. You'll have a fleet in no time!


Not only that, there are no keel wedges on the VX One to modify! 


Just sayin'!  ;)

sailing fleets tend to have regional focus and boat selection as you know. The U20 happens to be a appropriate boat for the conditions of the PNW. Therefore, the U20 fleet is active and vibrant there.

The J/70 seems to be well suited to the SF Bay conditions. Therefore, they have a decent fleet of some 14 boats.

Same thing with the Gulf Coast Yschting association of 30 Clubs along the Gulf Coast. After a rigorous selection process examing 2 dozen lifting keel boats ( including the J/70 and U20 ), they shortlisted the Viper 640 and Vx One. Either the V640 or the VxOne will be selected by these 30 clubs as their OD boat choice.

All good


Like Yogi Berra, you're saying "No one goes there anymore, it's too crowded". 


So no one is buying J/70's because the regattas are too full of entries that fill up in a few days. Dealers are eating boats, their lots are full of inventory they can't move.


Show us  the proof or you are doing the same thing you accused your boy Clean of doing.

And we'll be out there this fall for the Worlds!


Impossible. No one has actually purchased a J/70, they are all piled up in dealer's parking lots.


This means that everyone is buying Ultimate 20's now, it's the new cool.
