    J/80 transom delamination. How bad can it be?

    I thought the J/80 had a solid glass transom? Is there really balsa back there?

    J80 backstay flicker

    I mounted a J/70 carbon fiber flicker that I purchased from Sail22. I then mounted my Windex between the screws used to mount the flicker. Has worked great so far.

    Looking for Used J-80

    I had a problem finding one a couple of years ago and ended up ordering a new one from France. Love the boat and worth every penny. Good luck!

    J80 135 Genoa Track Info

    Can you send me your email address and I can forward them to you? I have the measurements from North sails which essentially lines up the track with the middle of the winch. I used to own 814 and I have the measurements for that boat as well. The track lines up on the outboard surface of the...

    J Class Weight limits

    The J/70 class seems be doing pretty well with NO weight limit. The advantage of extra weight upwind is offset by the disadvantage of the extra weight downwind. The health of the sport dictates that no one should be left at the dock period.

    Baltoplate and 355 Thinner?

    I had this problem a few years ago and Interlux recommended 216 which worked well.

    Congratulations! They are great boats! I hope the previous owner will not be disappointed in his decision to change classes.

    J 80 Bow Sprit End Cap

    They are still building J/80’s at J Europe in France. Perhaps they can hook you up with one.

    Much easier right now to to find a new wife than it is to find a good J/80.

    Good luck with your search. I tried to find a nice used one last year and came up empty. I ended up buying a new French boat and I have been very pleased. I understand that several more J/80’s are to be shipped to the us this year.

    J70 ticks the boxs BUT

    The J/70 is not a good handicap boat upwind (I tried). Your J/70 and your small jib will have a lower PHRF number that boats with a longer waterline and a genoa. Not a recipe for success in light to moderate breeze. The boat is very fast downwind though. We normally race on a triangular distance...

    J80 Aft Bulkhead Rot

    Curious if it was a US or French built boat?

    J 70 PHRF

    We do primarily point to point racing in a handicap fleet with our J/70 and find it to be slow upwind due to the small class jib. We are giving time to boats with genoas and longer waterlines and I think the boat struggles to be competitive in light air conditions. The boat is always fast...
