Great photo of my S&J pitching and rolling out of control. Just kidding shes off shore in the golf between the Keys and Tampa on a rather calm sea when she was in her prime.
Mick Howl, I also have a '89 SJ Ketch. Until I saw yours I was beginning to think I had the only one. My previous owner said he moved the rudder aft to improve handling, which would seem to be a MONUMENTAL job, but all the photos I've seen of SJ's show a rudder attached to the rear of the keel. Haven't got it in the water yet, so judgment on how it handles will have to wait. The boat's in Mobile right now & I would love to chat with you further, offline, if you wish. Popeye.
