The standard vang is a 12:1 system; a 3:1 internal wire or Spectra tackle in series with an external 4:1 block and rope tackle with a cam cleat.

Rule 4.3.9 allow this single ended control line to be led back to the cockpit.

From a safety point of view it may be better to allow control lines on both sides of the cockpit. It is allowed to replace the single ended 4:1 block and rope tackle with a double ended block and rope tackle of the same diameter and lead both ends of the control line back to the cockpit (port and starboard).

It is not allowed to increase the power of the system beyond 12:1]]>

<![CDATA[Class Rules Discussions :: Proposed Spinnaker Rule for 2020 North American Championship :: Reply by JohnGreifzu]]> https://j109.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1345&p=1952#p1952
The changes are underlined below. Member voting on this rule change will take place after the requisite notice period.

* * *

5.8 For J/109 Class sanctioned events hosted by Fleet #11 (Great Lakes & Lake Champlain) during the 2021 calendar year, including the 2021 North American Championship and any event advertised as a ‘pre-NAs,’ ‘tune-up’ or similar, the following applies to spinnakers:

(a) The asymmetric spinnaker shall be manufactured from woven nylon with a minimum nominal weight of not less than 40 grams per square meter. The area of the asymmetric spinnaker (“SA”) shall not exceed 120 square meters, based on the formula: SA=(luff length + leech length) *.25 foot length + (half width -.5 foot length) *(leech length + luff length)/3. Adjustable leech, luff, and foot lines shall be fitted to the asymmetric spinnaker.

(b) All asymmetric spinnakers declared for use during the events must be measured for compliance with 5.8(a) and issued a J/109 sail tag. Sailmakers are responsible for obtaining sail tags, conducting measurement, and submitting measurement data in accordance with Rule 5.1.

(c) All asymmetric spinnakers shall be listed in the J/109 sail tag database and the notes field will distinguish sails used under this Rule by stating the actual measured area in the following format: “Oversized Spinnaker Area xxx.xx square meters.”

This rule shall expire on December 31, 2021 and be automatically deleted from the J/109 Class Rules as of that date. The expiration of this rule shall not cause the sail tag or accompanying notes to be deleted from the database.]]>

I don't know if the rod below the hydraulics is standard or custom. I didn't see anything online. You know Skip Mattos at Harken. I'd give Skip a call and see if he knows of a source. If not, it could be fabricated from a local machine shop using the old one as a guide.]]>

<![CDATA[Maintenance Topics :: Changing the hard stuff - engine & rigging - how often :: Reply by Vento Solare]]> https://j109.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1411&p=1906#p1906
Bengt turned me on to a stainless replacement in 2016 for the Exhaust Elbow that you can read about at this link. Mine was significantly restricted and impacted engine performance.

I haven't done the sail drive upper seals and will probably tackle that next year. I have been verifying the leak sensor works by removing it and wetting the electrodes.

I had a full rig inspection done by Rigpro at the end of 2016 that resulted in replacement of the Nitronic 50 on the shrouds because Harken peened the swaged ends and they couldn't be removed without cutting.

Like Todd I replace upper and lower zincs every year. I dive on my own boat and can monitor any degradation. I'm at a dock on shore power and use an extra "grouper" clip on zinc that attaches to the push pit. I verified with a meter when the boat was hauled a good electrical connection from there to the bottom of the sail drive. This provides additional surface area for cathodic protection.

Other things less common - changed all engine and heater hoses, rebuilt head and Y-Valve

My project list which also serves as a maintenance log is a Google sheet available at this link for more ideas. There are multiple tabs that are self explanatory.]]>

Yes I did add a light. It is an LED dome light with integral switch mounted on the inside center of the forward facing piece that is part of the top step structure. It is wired to the interior lights circuit. I ran the wire from the light and made a small service loop on the inside of the engine compartment so the top step can be rotated and lamp unscrewed to remove the step. The wire runs aft and is connected to the 12V line that powers the light in the garage.

It isn't any special light. Defender had them in a barrel for $20 at their annual sale a few years back.]]>

<![CDATA[Maintenance Topics :: Hull/ deck issue :: Reply by TSweather]]> https://j109.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1439&p=1955#p1955 While ours is still intact I have repaired the hull to deck joint on other boats before. If the deck is noticeably lifted I would consult a pro to look at it before applying any adhesives as you may want to back up the repair from the inside with strips of glass tape/tabbing seeing that the hull to deck joint is an important component. They may want to glue the seam and then clamp the joint using a ratchet strap or equivalent before fiberglass taping the inside seam.

If it is just leaking with no visual deformation of the deck; Plexus (uv stabilized), Six-10, G-flex, or even 3M 5200 can be used for the repair of the seam itself. Plexus and Six-10 have convenient mixing tips for this type of application. Use high quality tape to mask all nearby areas and remove it while material is still tacky. For preparing the seam I used a diamond blade on a Fein Multimaster tool, the type of blade used for cutting tile grout as it is far more accurate and safer than a small grinding wheel with less risk of damaging the surrounding area. In my last application I used a sharp mixing stick to trim away all excess along the tape line so as to keep all new material below the surface grade. This left me room for a thin gel coat line and a perfect color match.

Your issue interested me in general since I have seen ice collect in the hull to deck joint groove during the winter along with mildew in the summer. I have been thinking of using something to prevent water from collecting in there similar to Sika 295 UV by making a very small fillet to delete the gap. The concern is less about the summer mildew and more about the ice working to create cracks in our cold outdoor winter storage. Depending on where you store your boat, ice could have been the original trigger for the issue you are currently experiencing.

Good luck, Todd

I went with Bill's fix for the traveler support rod. Ordered 1/4 - 20 threaded stainless rod from McMaster. I discovered no stripping on the original nuts (Hull 251), but, just to be safe, made the change. Threaded rod threaded nicely through original tube. I added a G10 backing plate as well. Pretty easy job. Removing trim and quarter berth inboard panel was a bit challenging (as always), but was also a good opportunity to check quadrant and steering cables/wheels and tighten nuts.

***When removing the headliner underneath (and just aft) of the LPG compartment I did discover that two very poorly placed screws punctured the compartment. Therefore, water was leaking into the headliner and dripping near the steering cable wheels.]]>

The sail was repaired with 3Di material for full strength. The North Sails video below was taken 3 weeks later after the sail was repaired showing how well the 3Di product holds its shape and strength. This sail is great for PHRF racing and everyday use with the convenience of being able to flake it over the boom, making it easy to sail short handed or with the family. I also used it for some OD races, but have a 3Di main on a bolt rope that I typically use for OD races.

Included are the sail, battens, batten tools and North Sails bag.

J/109 Class sail tag #1801877 has the measurements.

Asking $3,500 plus shipping

The two heavy jibs I have are for handicap racing (either actual racing through a powerful blow, or to carry to meet safety requirements.)

If you attempt to substitute them for our normal OD heavy jib, you would be slow as we would never race OD in the wind conditions those sails are designed for.]]>
