  1. I thought about the same thing only maybe in reverse, having owned a J27 for 30 years. She was a great boat and really good with performance upgrades, SQTop main, asyms, OSP and masthead kite. However, age and community intervened and we left her for a J100. In truth I think the 100 is a grown up 27, bigger cockpit (27 is generous but the 100 is huge), more interior with head and diesel, more electronics. The 100 is a much heavier boat, more stable and more solid than the 27 but of course quite a bit faster, plus you can get to walk round the boat without a lot of heeling and movement, and th
  2. Someone, probably the rigger who loaded out the forepeak with rigging, snapped off the y valve handle from the head overboard/tank discharge for my 2006 J 100. So, the yard says they have to completely take apart the sink/top to get to it, many hundreds $$ so I wondered if anyone knew what the part make and number was,, and if you could get to it to replace just the handle..
  3. Its cheap because the mast is already stripped of rigging and boatyard have to rig it after anyway. I'm not worried about aesthetics just UV damage.
  4. Boatyard says original (15 yr old) paint on my carbon mast is oxidized and will only last about another year. Does everyone repaint their mast that often? Its a Hall spars mast. Their price is reasonable at $1500, but....
  5. love the pics, the 105 looks like a good choice. We have typically light air in San Diego, so the boat having 150 genoa tracks and a decent shaped 150 is a plus. She has Black Widow on the bottom now.
  6. Adrianl, seems my earlier post did not go through, amazing you owned her as fist owner. Yes she looks good, believe it or not she sold me on the photos and the condition, as I've never seen her first hand so I can't wait till hopefully this weekend. 2nd Owner kept her on a lift and the sails in nice dry storage. Did you use the jib boom and small headsail?
  7. G, saw you are a 100 owner, what did you do about inhaulers? seems like they are also needed for the 150 genoa.
  8. Seeing as I have never actually seen a 100 in the flesh this is going to be very interesting, but I obviously have faith! I did not even see Flash but survey was great and broker validated the girl. Really looking forward to being in the club!
  9. Yep, will be renames as Flashheart. Got anything on her?
  10. Last year suddenly feeling like life may be passing me by I started looking for a replacement for my J/27 which I've had since 1993. Wanted a bigger J/27 with an inboard and a sprit. The J/100 ticked all the boxes - provided it was standard draft, had a factory sprit and 150% genoa tracks. I also wanted a huge cockpit, great looking was a must. Every time i found one on line it was sold, but finally hooked into one in Annapolis and now in the process of bringing her to San Diego. What everyone has said about the boat being perfect for an old fart is right, can't wait to get her in the w

  12. Yes I can see you are right conceptually but, I'm not sure I can get a 4th shroud thu the existing 2 spreaders?
  13. Beam 8.5', Displacement #3800, LOA 27.5, LWL 23.5, P=33. Currently has twin backstays to allow for oversized sqhd main.
  14. Hi Frogman, This is what I have 1. Distance from forestay intersection down to existing top spreader - 8.5' 2. Approximate top spreader rake and length from cl, 6" rake, spreaders 2' long
