I am looking for a J24 sailboat. I wanted more information on the sailboat photos from the outside and inside. Equipment and sails and their condition. I live in Quebec Canada it 's hard to go see it for the moment. My email firstname.lastname@example.org a reply would be appreciated.
Thank you Christian.
I live in Syracuse and am getting back into sailing. I'm looking for a local boat in good shape. Can you tell me any more information about the boat? Is it possible to look at it? Thanks.
The boat is in good shape. As soon as The weather clears, I will cut the shrink wrap off. And you can look at it. It is in storage now in Skaneateles. I will get the Sailboat Shop to pull it out where I can cut the wrap off and you can crawl around on it. Every spring I wax the hull, touch up the teak. Tighten all the fasteners, examine the rigging, and lines and replace when needed. I don't believe the hull core has ever gotten soaked, so the weight should be correct.Are you familiar with J/24s? I replaced the jib winches with self-tailing Harken winches and moved them more out board,so the cockpit seating is a little more comfortable. I also put up a masthead or anchor light, and steaming and deck lights for night sailing and anchoring. The outboard is a 5 or 6 HP. 4 stroke Merc. A couple of years old with maybe 4 hrs running time. I only use it to get in and out of the slip I keep it in at Skaneateles Country Club. I have several good racing sails ( all top of the line North). In addition to a blade and 150 Genoa. I have an Asymmetrial Spinaker, that pulls up into a sock. Without a bow sprit, it is more like a Geniker. Currently I am using a 100% roller furling Jib ( about 4 years old) and an almost new Main with slides and one reef point. Pretty good all around combo, for cruising mostly.
I used to do some Sunday sandbagger racing on the lake , but haven't since my last hip operation and marriage to
A fair weather, light to moderate wind sailor. I can sail it by myself and have many times. It is very easy to sail with 2 people. The trailer was new with the boat and has gone from Bristol, R.I. To Skaneateles then back and forth ( maybe less than 10 miles a year to the Sailboat shop. Here in the Village.
I know the price is right. Selling was a late decision,, hence I don't have the kind of pictures I should have for a serious buyer. Fortunately, you are local, so looking at the real thing is pretty easier.
If you are still interested I will let you know as soon as it is viewable.
