Not sure if you got my last message. I've owned the boat since 2009. She is J-37 hull #10 with the "UFO" (wing) keel. I very much enjoy the boat and she sails great although the windward performance is not a good as the full keel version. I've been in touch with Bomar and I have some ideas on how to improve the gaskets. Not the 100% fix but hopefully will help.
On another note, have you ever had vibration issues with the diesel/shaft? The diesel is located amid ships and I replaced the engine mounts. However, there still seems to be a lot of vibration. I'm not sure if it is a shaft issue or even a worn strut (I replaced the bearling last year but it still vibrates). Anyway, any insight you can give is great. Feel free to send a PM to my address anytime.
