I did not buy a J80 because it was to much money and it would have been and older boat if i did

BUT with 3 friends racing them out of my area it bothers me a LOT

J80 #19 Rumor is a local boat and an older hull with the best race record on the east coast winning Key West Race Week many times including 2009

And there are a few others about 1/2 are dry sailed and 1/2 left in the water


J80 #21, Skillagalee which is LIS sailboat with and original owner has been left holding the bag one year later with a pretty much totaled sailboat ,How much do you beat up a sailboat racing on LIS ?

J80 #45 Heatwave is still capsized and floating in the Pacific waiting to drift to the rocks

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

BobM - multis are the safest boats on the planet. Everyone knows that. You don't even have to wear pfds on those things! Obviously you've found some photoshopped monos.
Both boats were pre Scrimp construction, to the best of my knowledge.

The first 100 hulls are Pre-Scrimp and require more corrector weights to be class legal

BUT the most raced J80 #19 RUMOR with the best record is also and early hull and it travels all over the place buy trailer (i race against the owner)

Both boats that lost keels were wet sailed

The Scrimp thing has NOT been trouble free
