    Why did J Boats drop the J100?

    I can get about $1500 as scrap metal. I'd like it to be used rather than junked. How about $2500 or offer. Its located in the SF Bay area BTW.

    Richmond YC can easily launch J70s. There are two in trailer storage now. BTW the one with bottom is on a winning roll, Trans Tahoe and maybe three beers cans in a row. We'll see after next two one designs races at St Francis.

    The Bay Area has had a bad couple of years with too early loss of great sailor citizens. When I started racing in the mid 80s I envied the guy a little younger than me on the really cool boat that blew past me. He seemed to have some magic on a boat. I thought of him as a fierce competitor...

    Starting another Dart..

    Congrats Jim and Mark! Its a wonder how things turn out. I remember introducing Jim, who was living with his wife on his cramped Columbia 26(?) at the time, to the B25 almost 20 years ago to the day when I brought my new B25 Zilla to Sierra Point Marina. Like me, he really loved that boat...

    Sailing in Abu Dhabi

    I thought about shipping it. Surprized me but the mast splits to two sections but the width is 10'3" or so. Too big for a flat rack I fear. I'm gonna recheck but I think its about $50K to ship from SFO.

    Sailing in Abu Dhabi

    I'm taking and expat gig in Abu Dhabi for a few years. We just finished storing our SC37 in the 'garage', that's it shown below on the trailer posing next to the Hwy 88 Carson Pass lookout.
