  1. Thanks for the history lesson. My opinion was from 2010 not the boats launch. If you had been around then you might have noticed how SA had been getting renderings of new J’s prior to the announcement. Could have sworn that was a poster called....Kent H. You have a crappy screen name from a broke actor. Citing my posts to inflate your miserable ego will get you nowhere. What part of the biz are or have you been in? In 2010 Genmar was in process of liquidation. Brunswick was teetering and sailboat sales tanked. There were a few exceptions. One was called the J/111.
  2. All good pints...... My thoughts at the time was that there was just not enough money looking for places to go ..... That was 2010. Fast forward to 2021.... Jboats needs to be dropping proposals for new boats every month. Money, money, money..... Sailors need places to put it. That J45 is not unique. The J100 is getting renewed interest because it looks great, reasonably fast with that Hoyt Jib boom ( lotsa wind) But above all else it is rather unique. For an older sailor the J100 is a Corvette amongst a herd of donkeys.
  3. Four years ago....Blue Apron? I seem to recall visiting a shed in NJ where the meals were put together....four years ago. No thanks! Far better choices. Shopping services will buy and bring to your door. Amazon etc Buy a separate freezer and store ready to microwave food.
  4. I have an I phone with an area code that I do not live at. Then I added the app RoboKiller.

    I thought the 145 was the Racer and 46 was marketed as the Racer / Cruiser. Perhaps this is the Cruiser and the J/146 is next months new J. Hmmm stay tuned!

    “Quality matters and the J/45 makes no compromise when it comes to critical components like the composite materials, keel, spars, winches, and deck hardware, that all contribute to a comfortable motion while sailing.” Unlike previous J Boats this one has not been compromised by inferior parts, hostile Beneteau agents or discontented French Laborers.

    Brunswick can’t build million $+ Boston Whalers fast enough. Lots of money looking for product. I bet 15+ sold by March 1st. J Boats needs to drop all their prospective builds and see what the interest is.
  8. There were two used Tartan 26 daysailors for $65k. Both were on yachtworld. Cheap alternatives such as various Cape Dory, C&C 25, Cal 23/22. Etc. Do you want to be able to take a nap? Head, etc
  9. Can you recommend specific brand, model? Sorry just starting to consider replacement of kitchen, laundry and bathroom floor that is on cement slab. Then a full bathroom on plywood. Thanks
  10. The B52's Fred Schneider's Snake Bomb and Holiday Haze Coffee. Great Gift for someone of the B52's era. Snake Bomb is pretty good. No Idea about Holiday Haze. https://www.communityroaster.com/coffee-collaborations/
  11. GIFT SUGGESTIONS: - Hourly Employees or those who are paycheck to paycheck: 1. When I was that type of person my Supervisor ALWAYS had a problem with employees running out of money around Jan 10th. We were paid early prior to Dec 25th and then did not see another paycheck until January 15th. (Bi-weekly Pay + Holidays = hungry employee) So she always gave $25 Grocery Store Gift cards - BEST Gift ever. She put them in a card with exactly what is written above (Bi-Weekly Pay + Holidays = Hungry Employee). Today usually a Walmart Gift Card of $50 works just as well. -
  12. Excellent thread idea. I will put my top picks on as soon as I am near a laptop. Great idea Cal20
  13. I am just surprised that nothing has turned up yet to explain it. Was it a prop to a movie? Loch Ness has a Nessi monster on the bottom from a movie.

    new j/day

    Those numbers surprise me. They are lower than I expected. Boston Whalers are selling as well as numerous powerboat lines. J Boats may be on to something about demand for a boat like this at those starting price points.
