Re: Merit 25 sailors?

kevlar north sails 150% genoa 2012
3 spinnies ALL in excellent shape
1 mylar blade fair

everything works...good gear, racing history, good winches, handles, etc

mast and standing rigging are in perfect shape with mods added by previous owner(check stays to hull, hull is also strengthened with cheeks under the mast compression post) removeable forward lowers, tabernacle stock mast
lastly the boat is fast, nimble and everything the j24 isnt! JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA
very very little leaks, they mostly come in through the double deck hatch that is a racing design issue of the boat when spinnaker racing.
