The J-28 is a really neat boat. It is part of J-boats first cruising generation. They are reasonably fast and seaworthy, quite easy to handle and all round very good boats.

They are a balsa cored hull and should be carefully surveyed but they were quite well constructed (sturdier than the racing series). The later ones had good ventilation that came from a lot more operable ports than the earlier ones.

I think the J-28 would be an excellent boat for cruising in south Florida or "maybe a little further".

Good luck,
Jeff

Jeff:

Thanks for the comments...this boat is, hopefully, to let me develop some seamanship and yet allow a reasonable place to hole-up in on occasion.

Do you see them on the market and what would be the going rate for a later model that would surevey well? I have no place to develop any sweat equity.

Thanks again for you time. Would like to see some other J/28ers drop a few comments. Do you know of particular boards with similar interests?

Jim

I don''t think that too many of them were made. Here on the Chesapeake where J-boats are pretty common I have only seen a handful of the J-28''s.
