J 36 mast

Dismasted in St. Thomas Int'l regatta; need mast for J 36, preferably used; there are some delaminated and scrapped, perhaps the masts are somewhere?

Re: J 36 mast

Here is a whole J-36 with a bunch of gear for pretty cheap

1981 J Boats J/36 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

There are a number of boat salvage companies and one of those had a J-36 in New Orleans perhaps a year or so back.

Re: J 36 mast

Any J/36 racing sails available from any salvage boat? We're interested! Sorry to hear about your mast. We replaced our standing rigging last year "just in case".

Re: J 36 mast

No, this is no salvage boat. The bottom was recored and skinned recently at great expense. We need a stick from a delaminated donor.

Re: J 36 mast

Fixed our delamination and are enjoying beating every J/35 we sail against, as well as every Beneteau 36.7 and the occasional J/109 that we beat boat for boat. (If we don't beat them boat for boat, we beat them on handicap.) J/36's are HOT. It would be a shame to have to buy a "parts boat" that was still functional. I've tried to locate the damaged J/36's in New Orleans online and have not had much luck.

Re: J 36 mast

The delamination on Paladin, #53, was such that the keel was falling off while we were racing, water coming in faster than we could pump it out. On the way back to St. Croix, after winning the BVI in performance cruising, we were sinking. We turned around, and on the emergency haul out at Nanny Cay, you could wiggle the keel back and forth, and stick your finger through the hull. The balsa core under the waterline was almost fatal (When the keel is bumped on the bottom a few times, spider web cracks form, allowing water in to rot the balsa). $25,000 and several months later, that was fixed, and the boat was a joy to sail, once more. Now, we need a stick. I've heard of other J36's that were scrapped, others that are rotten not only underneath, but on the sides as well, and we are looking for a stick. We need one. The team consists of myself, and a dozen Jr. High and High School students.

Re: J 36 mast

I raced with Tony and survived while winning on your boat in Culebra years ago. She's a very tough boat to beat indeed! Good luck finding a mast and kudos to your for having students on your boat as crew.
