Re: Would you buy an early 80's cored hull boat?



This is a J24 plug I drilled when mine was new to put in a knot meter

ALL Jboats right up to the J160 the outer skin is only about 4 mm at most


I dug that piece of skin out of the jack stands a J160 fell on in Hungtion




The warranty was always kind of a joke in that gelcoat was not covered



Plenty of J24s and J30s (the oldest boats )have gone to boat heaven due extensive core issues

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
