She is a head turner, whereas a lot of J/30's are in rough shape (sailed hard and put away wet)Temptation is a conversation starter in the boat yard and on the water.The J/30 is a perfect overnight family cruising boat and set up for a day of buoy racing.

- Three mains. One regatta grade 9/10, one weeknight race grade 5/10, one full batten but lotta miles 3/10
- Two reaching kites (new 10/10 & old 2/10) are Melges 24 Power Zone reachers, which I are PHRF rated for, and are actually smaller than I could fit into the rating size allowance. I fly the kits from a tack line I run thru the bow pulpit & jib horns and snug it on the bow cleat. Works great for reaching breeze when the symmetrical kite would be strapped. Also works great for shorthanded sailing and deliveries.
- Spinnakers; one very good kite from North 8/10, one beat down kite from N 3/10, one Schurr kite about 4/10
- Headsails; kevlar blade #3 North 10/10 very little use, Gus Sails 163 #1 genoa 7/10 (cannot remember the Contender sailcloth we used for this one, could be pentex), older paneled pentex North 163 4/10, dacron #3 Haarstick 2/10 (beat down but highly useful for fun sailing and deliveries, though wouldn't trust it for racing)
- Her boom, mast & spreaders have a fresh white coat of 2-part Interlux Perfection which has not seen sunlight yet.
- Halyards are all modern soft-rope tech line (J/30s had wire,but changed when current owner bought her.
- Lewmar rope clutches
- Lewmar hatches replaced the old bad ones. These have vent mode and the large forward hatch can lock for security, or can be made to open from the deck. there are three deck hatches, forward, main salon and head.
Electrical & Charging System
- Battery system upgrade; I run one large deep cycle battery (Interstate Group 31) and one lighter but heavy duty start battery, on a Blue Sea Systems
combiner/isolator which foolproof the system from accidentally draining. It's hands off; Switch the system on, motor out, shut her down, sail. Fire it back up to bring her in. No switching. I can sail over 24 hours without recharge
- Wagan Tech AC inverter 1500 watt
- 30amp shore power
- Garmin plotter that has dual mounts; cockpit and interior so it can be hung inside out of the way for buoy racing or outside for distance racing.
- Cockpit radio hard wired into the main vhf.
- The gps and the vhf are wired together with the DSC / MMSI codes for emergency location and identification.
- She has a PLB also part of the MMSI package.
- AIS receiver is wired into the system so the garmin displays vessel info within range and angle of collision.
- NX2 instruments tie in also. Two screens on the mast. Very very good instruments. Wind data is trusty. Like B&G Nexus.
Rudder & Bottom
- Keel and rudder templated
- bottom epoxy barrier coated
- Annually I spray VC17
- Installed a new tiller. Coated in epoxy. Wrapped in 4 oz fiberglass and epoxied. This creates pressure plates for the large loads put upon the
tiller by it's stainless steel side plates. Overbored each bolt hole, including
the other end for tiller extension and tiller-pilot hardware. Holes filled with
thickened epoxy which isolates the wood. Therefore this tiller should never rot. Spar varnish on the tiller for UV protection.
- Tiller auto-pilot included but needs to be sent in for repair.
