    I am a proponent of bringing lithium batteries into the class, especially as I cruise, and the costs have come down to the point that a lithium battery is cheaper (per "usable" Ahr).

    See my past post on this forum, the safety issues are significant when just dropping in a lithium battery, the class technical committee had asked me to post that.

    I have copied and modified a proposed design from the LiFePO4 Facebook, moderated by Rod Collins who is/was one of the top installers of LiFePO4 batteries and a member of the ABYC forum that created the E-13 Lithiu standards. This is a design that mitigates the safety issues which I shared, and a proposed class measurement approach to keep it fair so nobody feels they need to upgrade.

    What the technical committee would like to see is if someone tests this in real-world conditions on their J/109. Is anyone out there willing to invest in not just a lithium battery but the totality of needed upgrades for safety? If so, I would be happy to be a technical resource and go shoulder to shoulder seeking approval for 2025.

    Until this is done, no lithium batteries are permitted in 109-class racing, e.g. owners need to swap out their lithium battery for lead acid and reprogram their shore chargers and balmar smart regulator.

    The ideal volunteer races their boat 8 times and cruises their boat twice for 3 days or more in 2024, is willing to log their battery monitoring especially while cruising, has paid careful attention to their battery monitoring in the past, has the US version of the boat (batteries next to the nav table) and has the stock alternator and balmar regulator still installed on their boat. They must also have access to someone who can competently do the upgrade work, ultimately take full responsibility for the safety of the work, speak with me through the season, and share their results on a call with the class technical committee.

    If you have already purchased a lithium battery, that can work too if you are willing to do the work to make the installation conform to something we can use for class rules.

    We are thinking of approving two configurations. The one I most desire to get approved with the technical committee is where the alternator output goes directly to the lithium battery with the balmar regulator, and a DC-DC charger manages a separate lead acid start battery. The other configuration, less interesting to test, is to connect the alternator to the lead acid start battery, and put the lithium behind a DC-DC converter that manages the charging of the lithium.

    All future owners, when they go to purchase their next house battery, will be grateful when we are done.

    <![CDATA[Class Rules Discussions :: Propeller replacement :: Reply by Vento Solare]]> http://j109.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1517&p=2514#p2514 This is an update by the Technical Committee effective 2 February 2024

    Propeller Replacement

    Background: The Technical Committee has reviewed requests related to replacement of the Flexofold Two Blade folding propeller (16" diameter) that was installed as original equipment on most US built boats. The factory installed equipment consisted of a bronze hub and two bronze “racing” blades. The original configuration with the exact blade shape and bronze hub is no longer available. Similar Flexofold Two Blade folding propellers are available with different blade shapes and different hubs. The current products available include the Large Anode (LA) Bronze Hub version, Standard Bronze Hub version and a Composite Hub version. The Composite Hub is currently the only available hub that is compatible with the racing blades originally installed on the boat. The original blades may be interchanged with the new style blades in pairs but may not be mixed.

    Decision: Based on the unavailability of the original equipment, the Technical Committee has determined that any of the currently available Flexofold Two Blade folding propellers and blades systems may be used as a direct replacement for the original equipment. Additionally based on the previous review by the Technical Committee the Gori 2 Blade Sail Drive and Gori 2 Blade Racing Sail Drive 16 inch bronze propellers are authorized.]]>

    Background: The Technical Committee has reviewed a request to permit the use of Lithium Ion batteries for one design racing in lieu of the current requirement of two lead technology batteries with a combined capacity of 150 Amp Hours (Ah). The Technical Committee has determined that use of Ah with lead technology is an accurate reflection of a minimum weight standard to enforce class rules. The introduction of lithium ion batteries has introduced important safety considerations including battery charging, system ground, over-current protection, and thermal runaway protection.

    Decision: After careful evaluation the Technical Committee has determined at this time the use of Lithium Ion batteries for one design racing continues to be prohibited. The committee will continue to evaluate this technology over the next year based on testing and industry adoption of safety standards.]]>

    It seems like it is a fabric constrictor with the added benefit of protecting the fabric sleeve in a metal housing.
    This might help it perform better when released and prevent accidental releases from feet, etc. It seems like those are two issues I've read about or heard about with the Ronstan units.
    I think I need to add something in any case as the existing Spinlock XTS have already been downsized to the 6mm-10mm jaws and the halyard still slips.]]>

    I thought to use the new Harken block instead of a low friction ring, to have the ability to detach entirely from our inhauler without rigging an additional line, as our inhauler when released goes about 8 inches from the rail which is sometimes not enough.

    I am thinking now, maybe to make the existing ring (or an Olli Ring which won't ding the deck), detachable somehow leaving the ring on the sheet, but no longer attached to the inhauler line.

    Has anyone done this?

    When I went for a new one, I chose Quantum 135% and have been mostly happy with it the last two years.

    I really cannot imagine anything larger, as it gives me what I need to move in light winds, and when the wind pipes up, I quickly lose the advantage and it becomes a negative.

    I race against a J/105 with a 155%, and she only seems to have a slight advantage over me is at 4 knots. We both seem to need a minimum of 2 knots to move, and her advantage is only deadly for us around 4 knots TWS, as anything less is not enough to finish the race before TLE.]]>

    I have accumulated too many old sails in my basement and am making space for newer sails. This class jib is good for PHRF, cruising and deliveries. It was used 2 years for class racing, then for PHRF racing. It was originally made with four horizontal flexible battens for furling, then modified to use four vertical battens when the sail was modified in 2018 with a UV cover on the starboard side so that it may be left furled on the headstay without a jib sock.
