i have a j 30 which is a different animal than the j 28....

I would have boughbt a j 28 but the asking price was double of my j 30 ...

I really like my boat, its a little handfull when it blows, but you can depower easily ( twist, than reef ) or wht I do actually quite often sail with main alone ( beat a lot of boats upwind very relaxed )

I was also lookin at the laser, which is a better all around phrf boat to race ( especially in light winds ) but I didnt like the looks as much as the J and the wife didnt like the plastic/orange interieur compared to the wood of the j 30

But the J 28 is somewhat a milder race boat and a better cruiser than the j 30 ... just that i didnt have the dough ...

Meanwhile I can get at lkeast 5000 bucks more for my boat than i have spend ,, try to find that with older boats ....
Dont have any wet core, but I also check and rebedd things quite othen...

go for it, you wont be dissapointed
