    I have several what is your budget?

    Bent t-bolt

    I noticed the "t-bolt" is slightly bent (part that attaches to the chain plate) adn ordered a new one from Vella Sailing supply. The new one is about 1/2 inch shorter. I also called Waterline and there is the same size, Any advice? Thanks! for your insight!

    Prep below the waterline

    Looking for opinions. I used Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax (spray on) for my car and the water just beads off - great stuff! I was think how would this work on the hull. I have always been told not to wax below the waterline because the water can adhere to some waxes and slow performance, but...


    Mike, My experience is get a motor that will get you around in your home waters. I have a 2.3 hp long shaft and it gets me around just fine (I sail in a lake -flat water). I do think anything over 3.5hp will get heavy taking on and off the stern. Stick with the long shaft and you will be...

    J24 Rigging Guide

    Here is a good place to start. Everyone has an opinion on this and it is more a personal choice mixing with what has historically worked best. Look at other 24's and see how the top performers are set up in your area.

    Paint Sprayer

    Any recommendations for a paint sprayer. I am going to spray VC 17 on the bottom and I have an air compressor but do not know the advantages/disadvantages of gravity vs siphon spray gun. I would like to hear from someone who has experience with this.

    Replacing old spinnaker sheaves

    I would try Waterline and Hall Spars. Both of them have been very helpful with part sourcing.

    Keel Bolts

    Does anyone know what the Ft/Lbs should be for the keel bolts. I do not want to over torque them.

    Hello does anyone know how to rig a j24 downhaul

    Try the APS website under J/24. Pretty standard application (look at hull #2350 page 2 pic 42-50). That should get you started.!i=606947293&k=h2D3Mgr

    To template or not to template - That is the question

    Thanks to both of you for the advise!

    Looking for measurement numbers..

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Working on fairing my keel and making the trailing edge min length. I would like to hear about measurements for section 2 and the tip of the trailing edge of keel from the transom. I know the measurement number for section 4 (3095-3125mm) and the top of the keel...

    Save it or strip it?

    Cut the emotional tie to the boat and look for a new one. It will not pencil out financially. You will get frustrated when the boat is still dry docked next summer and give up all together. Sadly some things must die. Your idea of parting out the boat is the best option.
