trailer is vintage double axle from 80's and works fine, has done 200-300 mile destinations......... Sorry but I'm not going to take pictures of every item you want so you can see they exist. The boat is race ready, goes to weather better than any other of the six J-24's I've raced for the last 25 years and is a steal at 3 grand.

Your right that it is a good deal. But I am not going to travel 3 days and 2000 miles only to get there and find that it does not meet my expectations. Most people supply pictures up front. I do not need every detail but I would like some decent pictures. I really do not think that this request out of the ordinary.

When you say vintage trailer and it will not be able to go 2000 miles that's a game killer. What is it with the trailer that it will not do that distance. Tires, Bearings, too much rust????? These are things any buyer but a local need to know.

I am not sure what I said but I am truly interested in this boat. I am not trying to check for existence of equipment just trying to gauge the overall condition of the boat.
Sorry if I pissed you off. Definitely not trying to do that.

No need to apologize or anticipate that you pissed me off..... The boat is not new, built in 1979 and trailer is similar vintage. Will Wells of North Sailmakers , a J-24 World Champion has raced against this boat. He understands its pedigree.......You might find it more logical to look locally.
