Why did J Boats drop the J100?

I used the jib boom once so the Quantum sail that comes with the boat will be almost pristine!

The sail is just too small for racing - 84% or thereabouts. It is nice to go dead down wind in a blow with the jib boom but for upwind work just wont wok - least not here in our typically light wind.

I see talk of a 150 genoa - respectfully suggest you research this as the boat gets overpowered very quickly  - 8 knots true maybe - unless you are carrying a lot of weight on the rail.

We raced DH with just the 105% on a roller furler and found it plenty of power - for upwind distance work there should be a very flat cut code zero which is a wicked sail at 60 true and 5 knots of breeze!

Holy Smokes! Great pics! I love the gold bottom paint against the green topsides. I've never seen that combination on a boat before and looks awesome. 

If you are a Packers fan it would be even better

love the pics, the 105 looks like a good choice. We have typically light air in San Diego, so the boat having 150 genoa tracks and a decent shaped 150 is a plus. She has Black Widow on the bottom now.

Your response to my observation about small pickle wankers accumulating pickle dishes applies perfectly in your case.
Spoken like someone who's never won anything in their entire life!  Oh yeah and go fuck yourself.

Is that the best you can do?

The fact that it took you one week to come up with such a lame response indicates that you are a limp noodle dick moron.

The number of trophies won that I distributed to hundreds of my crew members significantly outnumbers all the races you ever competed in.

There are two sets of molds.  US watercraft was the last to use them in the US and there also is a set in France.  As far as sailing fun.  The 100 will take up to a 140 head sail and will go up wind with no issues.  Way faster that a J29.  Throw a 1000 sq ft asail on a sprint and downwind is covered.  All that at an 84 rating.  It's an awesome boat !!

No, it indicates that I don't live on SA.  What's your preoccupation with my private parts asshole? Sounds like a personal problem. 

Hundreds of crew members huh? Right. 

And I'd be glad to compare events won with you any day. Oh that's right, you conveniently "gave all those hundreds of trophies away" LOL. 

Internet hero you are I guess.

What is it that you pretend not to understand? The content and tenor of your posts indicates that you are limp noodle dick moron.

Apparently you measure others with the short yardstick that you made to measure yourself.

In one major area regatta my program was awarded with 12 Citizen Sailing Chronographs as "The Boat of the Day" that I distributed to the crew.

All of my programs over many years regularly have podium finishes in major regattas so I do not need to keep trophies that limp noodle dick morons like you would covet.

Somebody asked a reasonable question and after nine posts, you guys turned this into a schoolyard pissing match that has lasted for a month.

SA at its best.

Yeah I know - just expressing the frustration.

Plus the last sentence from "glass" made me gag and roll my eyes.

Glass is just a fucking asshole and I'm sorry I've stooped to his level. He fights with everyone on every thread he cares to comment on. Some people just aren't happy unless they're miserable I guess. A grand total of 94 posts so you know he's somebodies sock puppet.

Amazing how the anonymity of the internet can bring out the worst in some people... 

 
In an effort to salvage this thread and bring it back on course, does anyone have any other suggestions/ideas for being able to drysail the J/100? 

I am facing problem of finding a slip (very long wait list) in the Tampa Area and am giving serious consideration to keeping it closer to where I live which would likely require either keeping on boat lift or finding dry stack marina willingness to launch in fashion shown in pics.  I have not gotten approval from J boats to convert to single point hoist. If all efforts fail I will likely but the boat up for sale and get something shoal draft and keep in my slip. Would love to hear how others have handled the situation. Ultimately, the J/100 is a great boat for the money and don’t think any other design could match it at the moment (besides possibly the new J/9) but that shall be seen...

That brings a different meaning to the thread title!

I dry-sailed my J/92 for awhile using a single-point lift.  Rod J or Alan calculated the balance point for me, and I was able to lift it from the aft two keel bolts.  It was a lighter and shorter boat than the J/100 but a bit taller, and that was the challenge.  If the hoist was two-blocked the keel bulb would just clear the trailer.  I had access to a three-ton hoist but you'd need more.  So you'd have some research to do.

That J/95 in the top photo looks like the right boat for your situation.

Just like Trump who is another limp noodle dick moron, you are the asshole who invented a conspiracy theory that I am a sock puppet.

Ordinarily I would suggest that you grow a pair of balls, but since you are a eunuch that option is not possible.

And congratulations to your buddy BobJ,  the other eunuch who just posted 5 thumbs down on my posts. Stupid is as stupid does.
