    Two questions from a newbie to J/24 sailing ...

    Thank you, Thomas. In looking at photos, i have mostly seen only small battery boxes - evidently on boats that are mainly used for racing. My uses will mostly be day sailing with limited electronic demands on the battery. Much appreciate your insights! Thank you. Bill

    Two questions from a newbie to J/24 sailing ...

    I have another question about setting up my ‘project’ J24: I’m now at the point of putting in a battery and, based on the size of the empty battery box and photos of various j24s, I should put in a small configuration 12 volt battery. Is there a consensus choice for the best small battery to...

    Someone looking for a windward sheeting car/traveler? I have a Harken setup available.

    I do still have it. But am away until Friday and will provide pictures, model #, etc. It is not listed for sale anywhere, so I will give you info and first dibs if you decide it is what you want. Bill

    Wow! That was absolutely spot on guidance - even to finding the page number in the Navtec catalog! Thank you so much, Vince! I would have (could have) spent hours and days search for the right part - and you directed me straight to it. I am very grateful. Bill

    Two questions from a newbie to J/24 sailing ...

    Looking for a referral for a source for replacement parts for my standing rigging turnbuckles - specifically the threaded 'turnbuckle screw' (i think that's the proper name) for one of my J/24 lower shrouds. The rig is tightened by holding the two turnbuckles while turning this screw. The...

    Looking for a decent used J24 Boom

    Now I am in need of a new or decent used J/24 tiller. Any suggestions on who actually makes these nowadays? Thanks!

    Two questions from a newbie to J/24 sailing ...

    Anybody have a spare J/24 tiller available? Preferably located in New England - but whatever. The tiller that came with my boat has delaminated and is not useable.

    Two questions from a newbie to J/24 sailing ...

    Another thought occurred to me: I had a little time three weeks ago to look the boat over in person, and I was checking the mast over for the setup of various rigging components, and realized I couldn’t find a topping lift. Do J24 boats that are/have been raced eliminate the topping lift to...

    Two questions from a newbie to J/24 sailing ...

    Awesome! You even included a photo - many thanks! While we’re at it, please permit me another basic question - My mast has no mast boot, nor is there any evidence of a set of blocks to secure/restrict the movement of the mast going through the cabin roof. I see that Waterline Systems and...

    Two questions from a newbie to J/24 sailing ...

    Here goes another seemingly basic question from a newbie J24 owner: is there a video -or description with pictures - that shows how to bolt or otherwise secure the mast base in position? I understand and can follow the tuning guidelines for stepping a j24 mast, but (since I am sill 850 miles...

    Looking for a decent used J24 Boom

    Sounds very interesting. Permit me a couple of questions - What price are you asking, where are you located in SC, and do you have any photos? I presume the internal reefing lines, outhaul, etc. are present in the boom - yes?
