Mick Howl, I also have a '89 SJ Ketch. Until I saw yours I was beginning to think I had the only one. My previous owner said he moved the rudder aft to improve handling, which would seem to be a MONUMENTAL job, but all the photos I've seen of SJ's show a rudder attached to the rear of the keel. Haven't got it in the water yet, so judgment on how it handles will have to wait. The boat's in Mobile right now & I would love to chat with you further, offline, if you wish. Popeye.

I also would like to see the blueprints and other paperwork. Seems like we should start a SJ club as I can't locate one. Popeye21

Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

[QUOTE=Popeyensweetp;680254]I am in the process of buying a 1977 s&j45 ketch, for the outragous price of 2500. us dollars. Yes she floats, yes she needs work, the mast is simply beautifull with in mast furling, great large winches, bags and bags of sails.

Oh Oh, two Popeyes with 45 ft SJ ketches. Must the ability to see the possibilities in an old wreck!

Rather post pictures of my ketch, I'd post the url, but I'm only at 7 posts so the thread won't let me. So if you want to see all the snaps, go to usauctions dot com, then "past auctions", then November 3, then Starratt. I'm really interested in the rudder placement. Popeye21

Can someone with the cruising cockpit post some interior pictures? Mine will need to be gutted and I am looking for ideas, especially would like to put in a full stand up shower which I know will be tight.
How about some snaps of your boat?

Talisman:

QUOTE: The space between the old and the new transoms is our propane (and other flammables) locker, completely sealed from the rest of the boat. And in case you were wondering, the transom slopes back, i.e. NOT reversed as per IOR fashions. END QUOTE

Would love to see how you extend the transom and put in a locker. Any pictures? Here's mine:

PS: It's snowing here in Denver today, 8"-12", so I have nothing else to do......

Poeye21:

The quote about the transom was from me. I do have pictures ... lots of them, but can not figure out how to poast or attach them.

keforion: when you hit post reply or quote, you will see, in the new window, a series of buttons along the top of the window. One is a smallpaperclip, and when you click on the a new window opens allowing you to browse to wherever you have the picture. Select the ones you want to post, then click "upload". Really just that easy. Popeye 21

Re: Starrett-Jenks Morgan45 info-opinions

Hi,
Two questions!

We are entering the Pacific Cup race from San Francisco to Hawaii. Anyone have any experience using symmetrical spinnaker vs asymmetrical? I was told by someone that symmetrical would be better on our boat vs using asymmetrical on the displacement characteristics of SJ 45?

Also our Anomometer was not hooked to our Ray marine series c80 series display when we purchased boat. Unlike typical Ray marine Anomometer which has a five wire cable, ours has a seven wire cable. Not sure of manufacturer of our unit. Any ideas on how to make the two talk short of having to climb the mast and replace the unit.

Much thanks.

Judy and Kusuru

Ok ... I think I have it now ... need the "Go Advanced" option to find the paper clip. Zowie, it worked. This rather old pic shows the new transom and rudder. The aft doghouse is 'photo-shopped' to see how it would look. It has since been built.
