Re: Windlass

Yes my 109 has the wiring ready to go for a windlass and it has the removable bow roller. I have looked extensively through the materials available and no where does it mention the optioned windlass vendor or model. Even the J Boats guys were unable to provide the data. Given the design is a 2003 vi...

Thanks

Code Zero Experience

Hi Guys,

I am seriously thinking of buying a Code0 for flying off the end of the pole and using a furler for it.

Can anyone using a Code0 with the 109 please be so kind as to share your experience, thoughts and opinions?

Thanks

Re: Cheap Whisker Pole Setup?

We do a fair bit of non-spinnaker twilight racing downunder - I bought a second hand aluminium spinnaker pole for about $100 and then fitted a short track and spinnaker ring to the mast.

Poling out the class genoa work really well and I can strongly recommend the setup.

Cheers

Re: Heavy Weather Jib Wanted

Hi Dan,

Thanks for responding - I am actually going to have a heavy cloth class size jib cut down by about 40% - we tend to always sail short handed and in 25 to 30 knots find the class size headsail and reefed main still too much power.

Will keep you posted on how it turns out.

thanks

Heavy Weather Jib Wanted

Hey all you guys that never get to use that small heavy weather jib in 25 knots plus - let me give you some cash and reduce your weight :D

Keen to consider all types and conditions,

Cheers

Loose steering wheel

Hello fellow J109 owners.

Whilst racing this season in 30+ knots one of my crew fell into the wheel - US build #148 - it is now sloppy with movement.

Has any one had to fix or repair something similar?

Its the standard build Edson build.

Thanks
