  1. I just chartered a 2020 Lagoon 42 and it was a lot of fun but I didn’t even bother with the sails until I saw white caps. Lots of motoring with the AP on.
  2. Interesting. https://www.yachtworld.com/yacht/1990-j-boats-44'-7886058/
  3. Lighter keel, Pre-SCRIMP, carbon mast.

    J/45

    That’s not really the point. It’s marketed as a cruising boat. There are better choices for offshore racing, I’m sure even J would concede.

    J/45

    Not really the same use case. The marketing materials call it a cruising boat.
  6. No write up, just a post here and there about her.
  7. You nailed it. Hull 99, 1994 build.
  8. The difference in budget between a J/125 and our program is several orders of magnitude. Can’t really speak to a square top on the stock rig, as ours is a custom rig. Sounds like an interesting idea. I’d be interested to see what comes of it!
  9. I will never understand why they felt it necessary to fair and sand the bilge.
  10. I can trim main with one arm unless it’s really blowing. But I also jam my foot under the wheel to hold it steady while I lean forward. I’m 6’6” so I can stretch pretty far across the cockpit.
  11. I agree that the 99 looks sharp with a wheel since it is recessed.
  12. We double hand our 105 with a wheel, and it works great. I prefer it to a tiller short handed or not.
  13. Unless she is rigged differently from Fiti/As Larks/Warrior, I believe she only has checks, not runners.
  14. That’s her sistership, now known as Warrior (née Fitikoko).
