    Hatch conversion, mast, boom, cushions

    Interested in Genoa stand-up blocks, esp if adjustment pins are spring loaded. Also, do you have a good (Ritchie) bulkhead compass? Thanks!

    J/24 logos

    I am looking for a vendor of white stick-on or sew-on J/24 logos for a new (to me) mainsail cover. Looking for ‘white’ colored logo for blue sail cover. Whom do I contact for such things?

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

    Thank you, Vince! Great advice ... and maybe a little explanation will help. I have owned and raced my J/30 since 1990, with moderate success on a shoestring budget. As I turn 75 and my usual crew nears that age, we have reduced our racing schedule to maybe one or two distance rAces a year. A...

    Thank you, Vince. Much appreciated - especially the deck layout schematic showing the sizes and locations of various deck blocks.

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

    Undaunted, I’m back again with another question - this time about J/24 hardware. What size block is the standard for genoa stand-up blocks in the cockpit, and jib blocks on the cabin top? Is the 60 mm sheave in Schaefer blocks preferred, and how do 57 mm sheave Harken blocks (attached to cars)...

    Do you still have J/24 parts? I would be interested in stanchions and bases and Genoa blocks and such. Thanks!

    Looking for more stuff - would like two sets of stanchions (for both upper and lower lifelines) and bases. Also am looking for a mainsail cover in decent shape. Thanks!

    PARTING OUT J24 with Updated Trailer, 4Hp Suzuki outboard, Lopez blocks and numerous sails

    My latest priority is finding some used stanchions and bases - 24” tall with two holes for both upper and lower life lines. I could use at least two stanchions and two bases. Somebody had these for sale but I can’t seem to find that thread. Appreciate help finding these puppies!

    Hi Mike, Seems that we never connected on lifelines. If you still have some, please post a photo. Thank you! Bill

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

    Yet another question from the ‘newbie’ to J/24 sailing: The 1986 J/24 I purchased (and have not yet seen in person) has a roller furler, and I was wondering if anyone has any advice, cautions, or other comments that would be useful to me. I plan to do some local PHRF racing, but not one design...

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

    Does anyone have a recommendation for someone who makes mainsail covers for a reasonable price? I am looking for one for a rope luff, flaked main - the rectangular type that doesn’t go around the mast. (Or a referral to someone who’s got one used in decent shape.). Thanks!

    Thank you, Tom. I would venture a guess that your last sentence applies to all of us. May we all get out on the water soon!

    Thank you Thomas! That’s very helpful. I sort of expected Harken would have a Genoa block & car product, but they don’t seem to. I can buy a couple of used Schaefer blocks that will do me fine and for lots less $$. Many thanks!

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

    Another newbie question to help me outfit my (old) new J/24 ... what are the generally preferred Genoa blocks for the 1” cockpit tracks? The boat I purchased has blocks only on the cabin top, and they do not have ‘stand up’ springs. Photos of cabin top blocks on most boats seem to be Schaefer...

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

    Thank you for the feedback on your Tohatsu motor. I have no problem with turning the motor for reverse, and much prefer a lighter weight vs. a 4 hp or larger motor. Much appreciate your comments!

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

    Thank you, Thomas and Luke! Much appreciate your remarks. My boat, judging from photos I have (you may recall that I can’t see it in person until May), has a lifting bracket, so it probably has clearance for rotating a small 3.5hp ob with only fed/neutral 180 degrees. The clearance for a 3...
