J-Boat 41

Question to everyone:

I have been reading all the postings on this message board and they have been a great source of information.
I am looking for some information on a J-Boat 41. I checked with www.jboats.com, but because the J41 is an older model, they don’t offer any type of information. I searched on www.Google.com, not much there either.
I was wondering if anyone here has ever owned, sailed / raced a J41 and if they can provide me with any type of information. How does the boat handle, goes to weather, is the J41 a boat you can day sail, or just for racing. How much crew do you need to handle the boat under sailing / racing conditions. Are there any specific problems with this type of boat to look for and avoid?

Any information – opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
