No Longer for Sale as of 2 Sep 2009
1979 J/30 - Hull #87 Zephyr V2.0 (formerly) Rampage - located on Lake Ponchartrain in New Orleans
($35,000 obo)

I'm the third owner and have used it very lightly over the last 19 years. Was owned from 1979 to 1983 by the Chicago Yacht Club Race Committee Chairman, an avid racer in Chicago (raced 5 consecutive "Mackinaw" races until Bob Conrad bought it and cruised her). It has about 700 hrs total on the Yanmar, it has a rebuilt Martec Eliptec prop and 7/8" shaft, 1991 new generation mast, brand new Benz Faget North Sales sails and all related hardware, full interior (removable table, ice box, alcohol stove, electronics panel, nav. station, etc), safety gear (harnesses, MOB gear, 2 horse-shoe rings, 6-man life raft, etc.), new halyards.

The boat is in good overall condition with a brand new paint job, Awlgrip Stark White with Zephyr Blue boot stripe. The hull is feathered with a brand new racing bottom job (Intralux 2000e barrier with BaltoPlate). Donnie Brennan faired "go fast" rudder. The interior is original (cushions faded/weathered). Deck is newly painted (good and solid). Hatches have been replaced.

Selling because I like rebuilding J/30s.
