Hi John,

I'm told that Mass Marine Parts recently scrapped a J/30 and may have a mast. It might be worth a call.

I tried to figure out how to contact you at Captain Mikes, but couldn't find an email. If you are viewing this thread, I wonder if you have the many boaty bits fomr the boat in question. I have hull 30, which has some very old parts that need replacement. I have new genoa, main, halyards, and most lines new on the way. I'm hoping to find all the rigging that the lines run through - vang bits, main sheet bits, backstay bits (the "pulleys" and cleats, mainly) so the lines don't get torn to shreds by the degraded and fading stuff on the boat. Although lovely to have antique rigging, it isn't good for the expensive lines... or for our sailing - things get stuck or fail to hold.
6314799592 if you have any cleats, vang setup, traveler, spin rigging, etc... most seems original and often worn or working poorly on the 1979 boat.

Mast, Boom, Roller Furling, Standing Rigging. Excellent Condition

See Other Ads. Pat Marie just got a complete refit before the Ian Storm. All photos are current condition inventory in clean dry safe storage removed from boat before storm. I have photos of the boat after storm and videos of this rigging.

Boat did not get damaged much but apparently in the right places to cause an insurance total , but all our parts are excellent condition, new, nearly new or never used from this J30

New Cockpit & All Berth Cushions & Sole Cover

This was from a Clients new full refit. Had everything made up and then boat got insurance claimed in storm.

See other ads we have lots of new never used or like new parts for the J30 Jboat.

All parts listed and pictured are current actual condition and properly stored.

All Parts were stowed away from boat in storm and boat got just the right kind of damage to get scrapped.

Great opportunity for J30 owner outfitting theirs or needing replacements.

Our family is looking for a well cared for and well equipped J30. We are in California but would be excited to buy and explore/cruise/race wherever your boat is located in the US or Canada. Eventually we would bring it west but in no hurry to do so. Any leads on available boats would be greatly appreciated and can be emailed to brad92625@gmail.com. Thank you i advance and excited to join and participate in the J30 Class Association.

Hello. Just received a j29 fractional mast to replace my mast in my j30. the mast in my j30 was broken a couple times before i owned it and repaired with sleeves. so it is not the correct dimensions. so as i am about to sort out and set up the new mast i noticed a few differences. j29 mast is apron 2" longer (my mast not original length), I will have to move boom up. the mast forestay attachment is not a halyard box but a welded on piece and the halyards for 1 spin and 1 jib come out a couple feet higher then come down to a guide which is above forestay attachment. only one spin halyard it seems. the spreaders are not riveted on but have a piece through the mast. the lowers not attache to mast but to spreader attachment. any help or advice on these items would be helpful.

These photos were from the last Royal Vancouver Yacht Club PHRF Wednesday night beer can race of the season in Vancouver BC. The breeze was a steady 20-25 kts+ with a high gust of 40 kts and big swells. We needed to get around the race course in order to win the series so we sailed... very conservatively with a reefed main and #3. High speed as measured by an on board GPS watch was slightly over 10 knots. Most of the fleet stayed at the dock. Four boats started in our class and two of them collided (only minor damage) and retired. We had a great time and did not break anything!
