Re: Thinking of buying a 1979 J/24
@Irunbird: Adding all your input to my list. The APS pictures are great and the Harken diagrams are now a lot more useful to put things in context.
@All: thanks much for your comments, they were well received. Even if some info I had already it's good to see how other people think.
"She" needs a name, I have to come with something up until next w/e when "she" will be handed over to me. I'm thinking of starting with a thorough inspection and not to launch her this year; I'd like to see her with the mast up though...
I found this link useful for rigging info: j24sailinghooray.com/harken.html
I'll have an update once I get to spend some time with her...
