more on old IOR boats

A 1971 Palmer-Johnson 30 "P-J 30", aka "S&S 30". These were sold in the UK (where they were built by Aquafibre) as the "Aqua 30". P-Js imported them and added an extra 3 feet to the (keel-stepped) mast. The 34 footer is very similar but better known (e.g. "Morning Cloud" owned by Prime Minister Edward Heath). There is also an "S&S 30" that was built in Australia, but this is the same hull as our Yankee 30. My boat disp. 7000#, 3400# ballast, 9 ft. beam, 21 ft. LWL, with a recently rebuilt Albin 2-cyl. gas engine. This is our first keelboat, after having raced a Buccaneer 18 (centerboard sloop) for 17 years. We don''t plan to race this boat.
