    new j/day

    My J/122 has a below deck furler. It totally sucks. More friction and less leverage means I either need to turn downwind or put the furling line on a winch. I’ve comfortably furled bigger headsails by hand with above deck furlers. Safe stanchion height is relative people size not boat size. So it’s not gonna change to stay in proportion with a smaller boat. But I believe some J/100s were sold without stanchions and life lines if you need the purity of driving without your seatbelt.
  2. More than likely “quite something” of a calibration issue on a brand new boat.
  3. Congrats!! How far out are they booked?
  4. Just the tip. Just for a second. Just to see how it feels.
