  1. Unsure. Can’t find the listing to check. New rudder is primo though.
  2. Old School is very much not a stock Farr 395 below the waterline. They went with a low vcg keel like five years ago. I’m not sure what they did with the balsa but the work was done in Rhode Island so presumably it was done well.

    Just a little bit of a plug for a friend organizing a regatta. The Edlu Race is a 32 mile distance race on LIS the weekend after American YC Spring Series in a few weeks time. So far there are 3 J/88s entered in the event and a number that seem interested. The OA has said that they'll give the 88s a One Design start if they can get 5 or more boats entered. Just thought anyone on here might want to talk or think about it. Yachtscoring site here: https://yachtscoring.com/current_event_entries.cfm?eID=3041
  4. They're just arriving in the starting area now. About half an hour their warning gun. Needed to get refueled off of cape Canaveral because they nor up all their gas pushing to be on time. Whoops. Almost turned into the longest Vanderbilt ever. Vmg running down the florida cost looks like no much fun.
  5. Hope there's time for the crew to take a dump on a stationary toilet before having to head out the start of the race.
  6. That's cutting it a little close...
  7. Damn, you change your name as often as I change my avatar. You definitely need more practice being Snaggy. Try typing with your left foot. uttweurdoiu'poi better with the hook i think
  8. Just built the shed 12 feet longer so it hangs out over the gas dock
  9. "No! I don't want your millions!!" Cmon
  10. Groupama70 + zoom Rudders are something special.
  11. RORC 600, Mobay race and key west feeder race are all possible within that timeframe.

    As long as it measures as a spinnaker for your local PHRF regulations and doesn't get you hit for having an extra sail then there should be no issue (rating wise) with having the sail.

    Not sure I'd call either of them replacements, the 108 uses the exact same hull just with the lifting keel setup, stubby prodded/anchor roller and twin rudders.The 111 tries to replace the 105 as a light weight fast offshore/inshore racer/cruiser. Something like a 114 will come along as a stretched 97. It will rate well, be fast upwind, fast enough downwind and probably win a lot of stuff in it's first year in the UK, new Js always do. Are you high? Thanks.

    J/109 is a cruisy moderately fast boat Replace it with a cruisey 35 footer = J/108 - Already exists Replace it with a fast 35 footer = J/111 - Already exists What other design briefs can they hit in the 35 foot range?

    This from the company that had 4 versions of the "j29 one design"

    One number (and time on distance) rating systems are a categorical failure.

    Very close to a J/109 rating. Yikes! I think that 75-78 would be a good # for the boat. 69 no way!

    Bill and the Deviants had the boat totally hooked up this weekend. Holy Cow!
