  1. My experience also, and agreed on the rest of this post. Ragbag - I like the code-0 setup, I believe under IRC you'd get that rated for free assuming the sail measures as a spinnaker and is smaller than the largest kite, the strap-on is shorter than the normal bowsprit so that should attract no penalty. Did you consider flying the zero off of the regular pole, I am thining you could partially extend it and have an adjustable bob-stay ? Also the tack blocks (two for kite peels ?) are very small, strong enough ? I find choosing the fixed prod over flying it off the bowsprit to
  2. Ragbag, you mentioned you have a Code Zero. What's the story with that? Namely Who built it? How are you flying it? Do you see the need for a bobstay? How does the boat like it? Thanks
  3. I'll second that. I've sailed with a few of the crew onboard and they're all solid. The boat is very very well prepped and the only comment that I have is that the boat might be a little difficult to rate due to the few mods they did.
  4. So J/Boats has a person on the Sailing World Staff? Or does Sailing World have an Editor with a J/Boat bias? Or is there some other conspiracy I'm missing. SW had guys riding 4 or 5 boats as I recall. Stu Johnstone, who was tactician on Kontiki, also writes the J/Boats newsletter
  5. Thanks. The only surprise there is that, under roughly rescored IRC, the 111 is as close to the 109 as it is (19 and 18 points respectively). I would have thought that the difference would be greater. Yes tactics and sail choices may have changed but I'd like to think that this is a good general indicator.
  6. Would someone mind rescoring the results of the PHRF division into IRC given the ratings that we know for Rush (1.042 last season), Galilee (1.140) and the J/111 which is around 1.09? I lack the software to do so and am curious to see how things fall. Yes I know there are sail choices between the two rules and such and such but a general idea would be nice.
  7. J/Boats news site is saying that the first One Design North American Championships will be at KWRW in 2012.
  8. Fugly. Y-spoke is the only way to go with that gem. That shit is Euro-trashy. DG I agree the y-spoke a la J122 is more attractive. I remember the first J122's had the traditional wheel and then they all switched to the y-spoke. My only issue with the black wheels was that they got hot in the summer sun. The standard wheels were fairly comfortable to steer with though.
  9. Hull #3 was delivered to SoCal and raced in the Hot Rum Regatta. Check out the news on JK3 Nautical Enterprises (J-Boat Dealer in SD) Facebook Site (good images of keel kelp cutter and rudder cam). Also, here is a link to some on board footage from a rainy blustery race on 20 November...Kind of looks like Jeff Johnstone triming main... http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?showtopic=111369&view=findpost&p=3076412
  10. That's the boat which won the Sail Magazine contest.

    Joke

  12. You know the rules, pics or it didn't happen You didn't get an invitation? Even I got one Cliffy
  13. I could not have said this better. Though I'm not familiar with the names you mentioned ULDBGuy I will suggest that ragbag call up his North rep and ask for a quote on a North CZ.
  14. Unless you want to rig a zero. It's also not helping the top of that chute - which looks like it started off ugly and gets worse with the deflection/lack of luff tension. If you're serious about rigging a Code Zero then a bobstay is required equipment anyways Bobstay doesn't look like much of an option with the sprit extending 7 feet past the end of the boat, it is an eight feet pole. We are going to likely custom fabircate and mount a small 6 inch extension on the very nose of the boat (past the bow pulpit). We have measured and we need just that much extension to allow the zer
