This is a great thread. Wish I had this for last Spring when I was scratching my head over what the heck was inside the boom preventing from removing the outhaul... I figured through it eventually laugh

Hi, I still have some sails in storage at STT... perhaps they could be what you are looking for? Never had a #1 163 jib, but seberal in the 140-155 range

I have been meaning to post a list of all J-30 sails and parts I've got. I lost the mast on Cool Change in Oct. and decided to total her after getting an insurance settlement in December. I have everything for a J30 except the mast and rigging. Check and replace your standing rigging if you want to keep your boat. It appears that there is no manufacturer for a new class mast and the cost is twice the value of the boat.

My newest sails are all available.
North 3DI endurance #1 2017
North 3DI Number 3 2018
North Class Spin 2018

All are used for Sunday races only about 15 days a year and none used more than 5 times in 2020.

Quantum 2017 main bought used in 2018 and hardly used. I had another North main that I've already sold.

I also have a 2003 and 2011 spinnakers as well as a really nice Wednesday night sail that was from White boat 090 a North American winner.
I have 2 other Dacron mains, approximately 2003 and 2011 and the grey main from White Boat used by Dave McConaughy and sitting in my eaves since he sold the boat.
I also have a class rudder replaced in 2019 built by Rudder Craft and a set of primaries that were re-knurled and have great grip.
I can be reached here or by email at rburshell@gmail.com or 757-869-4070. Please text first as I don't answer calls from unknown numbers. Everything is located in Hampton VA

Boats for Sale

Hi Watchoverya. Yup. I've only sold one of the stanchions. Make me an offer and let me know if you need the bracket as well. It'll be a while before I can pull it off as everything's under a foot of snow at the moment smile

Thanks Chris,

It's exactly as you said except there is just core under the winches, etc. I'll use Corecell foam and have most of the cabin top rotten balsa removed and am starting to install the foam with proper bevels on the edges structural epoxy in bolt/screw holes. Predictably some areas were better than expected and others worse. The deck is next, followed by the cockpit. It should make the boat stiffer and lighter.

The Smack

My first year too. On past boats I had, a wiggly tiller meant seaweed fouling on the keel or rudder. I would just back her down with the motor and blow it off. I tried that and nothing changed. Its very wiggly under power. I figured that is just prop turbulence. But, still does it under sail too.
