    The new J/88 is sailing

    I think I see Norman aboard.

    My 92 is twenty years old . . . is it time?

    Be great if you could trailer sail it. Won't work at RYC as the hoist limit is 3800 lbs.
    Does anyone know the weight limit at Brickyard?

    Edit:
    Brickyard's website lists 4400 lbs. Max. The J88 spec page says 4800 lbs. displacement.
    .
    Hmmm.

    Alameda Marina's larger hoist (Gate 4) is 6,000#. I drysailed my 92 out of there for 3+ years.

    Any hoists in Marin?
    I'll check SFYC and Corinthian but I think their both small.

    How much different is the 88 from the 92?

    Tom, let me parse out that last line for you:

    Sail Away: J/88=$160k . . . J/92=Paid For

    Oops, timed out . . .

    The local dealer won't get his until October. I'll certainly give it a close look, probably sail it, and see what rating they give it - but after the recent refit of my boat and five new sails purchased over the last six months, my J/92 is looking real good in comparison.

    No, I'm not trying to sell my boat but it's going to be a lot cooler on the Bay than here at home, and I'm told we have no plans. Want to go sailing on a J/92?

    PM me in the next hour or so.
