Re: '83 Jason 35 hull thickness???

Adding layers of glass would not help unless it's applied inside the hull. Even badly decomposed hulls only get shaved with a gel coat plane then maybe one layer over the newly fair hull. You going to share some photos of this mysterious boat Jace?

Re: '83 Jason 35 hull thickness???

Yes, thanks, bob, 'add more sail area.' (kinda' green, here)

The Coronado, well, that's what I read. A veritable 'icebreaker' it said. Between and inch and an inch and a quarter.

Yeah, guess I'll have to do some serious thinking about the mast and the bow sprit.

Thanks, guy (and gals) for the advice and comments. They help much.

Jace:
Being green is fine. You'll get a lot of help here.

As I recall the early Coronados were chopper gun laminates so there was no real control over hull thickness other than the skill of the gun operator and the amount he had drunk the night before. But I have never heard of a 25'er being laid up an inch thick.

Ted's a great guy and he will give you good advice. He's always given me good advice.
As fpor more sail area: You could look for a SA/D of around 18.5 for that boat. That would be plenty. I'm sure if you Google "Sail Area to Displacement ratio" you can find a quick explanation of that number.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.

Re: '83 Jason 35 hull thickness???

What, show you pics of the bot Denise and have all you ship-stealers take her way from me?

Kidding. Sure, got some pics, but I'll have to search for them.

I was thinking of doing the layers on the inside. Probably won't, though. Good or bad, I'll most likely take the hull as it is. Lazy, you know.

Yeah, bob, when the time comes for getting sails for her, I'll want to do that.
Lots, LOTS of work to do before that. Thanks.

Re: '83 Jason 35 hull thickness???

I agree with Bob that the Coronado's hull will NOT be an inch thick or anywhere near it. - certainly not in the topsides. Adding layers of glass on speculation would likely be a massive waste of time and materials, not to mention the difficulty unless it's a bare hull and deck at this point.

If it is rough enough to move the mast I think that's a great idea, and adding the sprit will improve things too but also add eternally to your moorage bill...

Sounds like a project.. we have friends with a very nice Jason 35.. they love it, it's been across the Pacific and back.

Re: '83 Jason 35 hull thickness???

Hey, Faster, thanks. You're probably right on the Coronado.

Your friends have a Jason 35? That's great. I'd like to get in touch with them to ask some questions, if they would be willing to email me. They can reach me at my website address below, then I'll give them my home email.

If they'd rather not, I understand. No problem. Thanks.

Ted has always been very approachable and willing to share his perspective when I've asked for it too. I have a ton of respect for the guy.

The Jason design just so happens to be one of my favorite Brewer designs, though there are plenty of others that are more "classic Brewer". Guess I'm a sucker for double-enders since Bob's Baba 30 is another of my all time favorites.

Kwalt:
Sure, I love Ted too but that Jason didn't balance for squat. Ted should really have known better. But he does now and he will help. I owe Ted a lot. Nothing ever changes that.
