I finally got the admiral and some dingdong friends to listen to reason and go in with me on a J/109. Happy to consider boats anywhere in the US, since anything is possible, but our goal for now is to keep the boat in Chicago, Milwaulkee, or Duluth. Our team, "Hold The Line" did pretty good on my buddies Beth and Wes's J/27 at Bayfield Race Week this year and I think the window is open to rope everybody into bigger and better things. We're looking to expand on our growth and get into the distance races.
Pretty sure we want the standard/deep draft if possible, but will consider shoal as well.
Send me a PM/DM to email@example.com
if you have a boat or any ideas, advice, or suggestions - the sooner I can herd all these cats into a boat, the better!
