1984 J Boats J/29 Fractional Rig/Outboard Configuration

19 October, 2012 by EVAN

About this Sailboat:

If you don’t know her – she’s a fine example of J’s successful 29′ hot rod built in the mid-80’s. Yet easy to sail. Hull and decks are structurally sound. Bottom professionally redone, faired along with the keel and 2 coats of epoxy barrier coat three years ago, when I bought her. If you do your research, don’t let the frac rig dissuade you. Her stick is nearly 4′ taller than a masthead. The boom is also a foot longer. The foretriangle is smaller, making sailing with less crew/kids a little more manageable. I often single hand/race the boat. There are no runners to fool with and with a quick tug on the backstay adjuster the whole rig can be tweaked to varying conditions. I have sailed this boat for three years and it has been a pure pleasure in all conditions, from the light, to 30 knots in the Winter, to spending the weekend on the water. Interior is great condition (no pix). Sails are in excellent condition including hardly used spinnaker. They have been lightly used.
