1978 J/24 nearly fully restored ready for paint and to reinstall the hardware.


Located in central MA

I purchased this as a project but ran out of time. All soft spots on deck have been replaced, new style companion way and forward hatch, lots of brand new hardware, most of other hardware in much newer than 1978 purchased used as I was in the restoration process.

Work Completed
  • vermiculite removed, keel sump filled/glassed
  • bulkhead replaced
  • all soft spots on deck re-cored
  • main cabin hatch replaced with new style - the molded parts alone were over $3,000
  • forward hatch replaced with new style hatch
  • nonskid sanded smooth
  • hull and topsides sanded and ready for paint/non-skid
  • single axle trailer
  • mast and calibrated standing rigging
  • updated winches
  • brand new mainsheet blocks and traveler bar
  • brand new jib tracks
  • brand new cross sheeting jib blocks
  • hardware needed to reassemble

I have not taken a full inventory but the only parts I know are missing are the toe rails, tiller and running rigging.

Not included in price but available separately (with the boat only or after boat is sold) is an extra tall ShelterLogic shelter with two rollup doors. Allows you to standup on deck while working on boat. The boat has been in this shelter since restoration started. $750
