I am surprised at the low level of activity on this forum compared to what the J/30 forum has. Is there another place I should be looking to learn more about the boat and the class?

Welcome aboard. Yes this message board is under used compared to some of the others I'm used to. I used to own a Sabre 30 and the Sabre message board (Yahoo group) has 25 plus messages per day. Anyway I purchased sweet caroline hull # 239 last year. We have cruised her a good bit and did a couple of races too. The 109 is an awesome boat by all accounts great for cruising and racing and fun to day sail. I saw the other posts you put up regarding the hour meter and the engine documents. Thanks for posting those they will come in handy. Having owned old sailboats for a long time I expect we could be some of the more hands on members here.
I have met some of the owners in the Western Long Island Sound area and they are all very nice and eager to help with getting the boat up to speed in the class.
Best of luck,
