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.
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...
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.

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...
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...
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...
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?
