1979 San Juan 7.7

16 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:


1. Two mainsails – 1 fully battened, 1 normal. Both in reasonable shape, but well worn. Certainly good enough for racing on our lake.
2. Dacron 118% headsail – real nice shape, rarely used.
3. Dacron 130% headsail – real nice shape, rarely used.
4. Mylar/Kevlar 150% headsail – from a J24…relatively new and good shape. The J dimension of the San Juan 7.7 is the same as a J24 making it easy to get headsails.
5. Very light weight 170% – well used, but works well.
6. Nice Spinnaker w/turtle bag for launching- relatively new…not used much.

1. Stained interior woodwork in 2(# removed).
2. New seat covers in 2010.
3. Added windward sheeting car…very nice for tacking/gybing. Cost ~$400.
4. Removed bottom paint and “faired” keel and rudder. Not professionally faired, but improved by me.
4a. This is the deeper keel design at 4.5 feet
5. Replaced bow lights.
6. Has a unique fiberglass cabin slider. I have never seen a 7.7 with this type of setup.
7. I have a bag full of brochures and receipts from the previous owner.
8. I repaired cockpit drains that had some cracking in 2008.

1. Dual Axle roll-on trailer.
2. Self-centers for easy launching/pulling out.
3. Has surge brakes.
4. Tires replaced in 2010.

1. Early 90s two stroke, 8HP Johnson…starts good.
2. Have service manuals.

1. Port-potty has a small leak (water) near the pump.
2. The toe rail appears to have developed a leak…may need caulking.
3. The depth sounder is difficult to read
4. The onboard speedo is not completely accurate…I use the GPS.
5. The front hatch plexiglass was damaged and should be glued together…no leaking, just cosmetic.
6. The cabin cover plexiglass is cracked and either needs a repair or replacement. A good taping job will also work.
