J-Boats

A friend is considering the purchase of a 1986 J-28 (“Athem”), and seeks opinion(s)
http://www.hoopersyachts.com/index....&usedboatid=503

I’m not a big fan of J-Boats in general, but then I’ve only worked on a couple of larger J’s, and never sailed one - so I’m not nearly expert.

I’d much appreciate any information and/or opinions on J-Boats in general, and/or the J-28 in particular.

The purchaser is intending the boat for club-racing, coastal cruising (2 adults + 2 children - Lake Superior), and single-handed sailing.

Thanks in advance,
Gord May
