Advice Wanted: 30'''' + for Retiree...

I''d like to hear more about the J/30. The specifcations show a surprisingly low (30%) ballast to displacement ratio.

How do these boats sail when not loaded with crew on the rail?

Are they a good choice for an active couple wanting a 30'' performance boat that they can cruise for a weekend or week?

Known weakness or faults? Are there model years that are prefered?
