Re: Shocker Wife likes the J boat
Need to look at the Viper 640 if the J/70 is under consideration. Both are excellent boats, with growing fleets of very friendly people. Price point on the Viper may be a bit easier on the wallet.
And if budget is a major consideration, then why not look at the J/80, which is a great little boat (albeit not trailerable in the same way as the other two) and very affordable right now?
If trailerability isn't necessary, then the J/22 should also be considered, as an excellent day sailer and proven racer. I believe the World Championships are coming up this summer in Newport, if I'm not mistaken.
We deal in lead, friend.
