Nice, nice boat. If I didn't already own one I'd buy it. Good luck, it looks like it's worth every penny.

Re: Instrument upgrades

I don't know how or why but I never adjust the lighting on the Garmin displays. The lighting for the Garmin displays is always on and set on red and high. During the daylight hours the displays are a yellow/green color but at night they automatically turn to red/orange. I do nothing to them at dark....

Instrument upgrades

Many people will find they are reaching the end of life for their instruments or they just want to upgrade to something a little sleeker. I found myself in that boat (didn't ever try that) when I purchased my 109. I quickly realized I didn't like the Raymarine ST 60s and I especially didn't like the...

A3 Spinnaker for sale 125 SQ Meters

***SOLD*** Great sail for reaching. Can out point anything. I bought it with the idea of reaching high which I was able to do very well. However, turns out a LOT of the racing in the River I'm in I need to sail deeper and this is a reaching sail. Weight is .75 ounce nylon (not Airx). Used once (real...

Re: Alternator Belt Dust Fix

I had the same problem with the black dust. It's the alternator belt being eaten up and blowing dust EVERYWHERE. I discovered accidentally that if you have the blue wheel on the Alternator that's the reason. The blue belt wheel does line up with the Yanmar engine and you burn up belts (and blow blac...

Re: J 109 155% Genoa

There's about 11 hours on the sail in winds of less than 10 knots. I'm getting rid of it because for me the 6 second PHRF adjustment puts me in a class where I'm racing against J 120s and the sail is a great sail but won't beat a J 120. If I use a smaller head sail I stay in my current class so alth...

Re: WANTED Weekly Race Quality Mainsail

John,

I have a used North 3DL Main sail that might work for you. I'd be looking for about $500 for the sail. Let me know if you're interested and I'll pull it out of the pile and take another look at it.

Thanks,
Frank Albert
