Nah... off to Palo Alto tomorrow to look at one for 1,800 with a trailer. The Ranger would be nice, but I think the Santana would be more practical. And it has an active class here. The was a Seafarer 24 for sale but I can find little info on it online.

I'm going to get bruised on the J-24 for the next couple of weekends...Fun boat, but man...you get some serious mystery bruises.

When I was last on a J24 a newbie had the helm and we broached a spinnaker... I had a bruise covering most of my left leg and most of my hip... That's just one more reason I have the boat I do... no broaching..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I raced in one of the Berkeley YC midwinters this winter. I was the mast guy. On the way back to the barn, our helmsman decided to jibe without telling anyone. I had a beer in my hand, it was gusty, and boat heeled just enough to send me flying off the "hump." I grabbed life lines and dangled half in the drink until they yanked me back up. I was purple from under my arm to my waist. The whole ordeal lasted 20-30 seconds. Two others went overboard on a Olson 30 in the same race (different class obviously) because a boat I used to crew on rammed it. It was a rough day on the bay.

You have to be on your toes on a J-24 and always holding on to something. Its hard to talk with one hand occupied and the other holding on to something if you are Half-Italian. LOL

No kidding... I saw the broach coming, and moved to the leeward side as much as I could and still got bruised for it... ended up sitting in on the deck with one leg over the side of the boat and the guys in the cockpit yelling and wondering if I was still aboard...
