    WTB: Replacement Rear Scupper fitting?

    Most boating supply stores have replacement scuppers in stock. Just make sure you replace it with the plastic one and not a metal one, also bed it properly, so it doesn't leak.
  2. Cause, too much compression load. Repair, find a rigger that knows how to weld aluminum to re-sleeve the mast where the spreader assembly goes.
  3. I, may have missed the article or notice, but would like to know where the decision on loose footed main sail stands. I know a little over a year ago, I took part in a survey and one of the questions concerned loose footed mains. I know a majority of respondents were in favor of the loose foot. SO, is it still in committee, dead idea or lost in space? Thanks,

    What’s the best boom tent?

    I have a Sailor Tailor, but it snaps in front of the mast. You may check with your local sail maker or canvas shop to have a custom made one the way you want.

    Buying Check List

    Add to the above list, any place a bolt or screw goes into or through any part of the boat, ei. ruder gudgeons, back stay tangs, head stay bow plate, jib car track, etc. Any place a screw or bolt goes in must be properly sealed.

    J22 Keel trailering cover

    Try Annapolis Performance Sailing. I have some from there purchased several years ago.

    Running rigging for J22

    You have one of two options. Find a reputable rigging shop and have them replace any running rigging that needs it. OR On this web site go to The Boat -- Line Lengths and print that off. Then go to your Marine Supply store and purchase the lines you need, do the splices and replace them yourself. Note. get a 80 foot 4mm line to use as a chase line in the mast, put a few stitches in the end of the line before pulling them through the mast. Also, get Dyneema core or similar core lines.
  8. Your Backstay Tangs were not bedded properly and allowed water incursion. Check locally with other boaters as to who does the best fiberglass repair work and have them make the repairs. They will be able to tell you if the whole transom needs replacement or just area around the tangs. When they are finished you will need to have your boat reweighed, and measured.

    need new spreader for Hall Mast

    Check with your local rigging shops, one might have an old used one stuck off in a corner somewhere. OR, find a good machine shop that can make one ( it wont be cheap).
  10. I have hull #578, it has two thru hulls that have are plastic screw flange, that need to be replaced about every ten years due to sunlight (ultraviolet) degradation. It appears you have the molded connections, and don't have to replace the thru hulls. But look at them close to see there is no damage from someone putting on a hose clamp wrong or to tight.
  11. It's a simple job you can do yourself, it's just working in tight quarters. While you are at it also replace the thru hulls, with new ones, it will save you doing that later, as the plastic will deteriorate over time in the sun light. I personally like Boat life / Life Calk non-shrinking.

    Fore and aft air tanks

    I am not sure what you are calling Air Tanks. There is a void under the floor of the cockpit, with access ports in the lazaret and the front inside the cabin. Also a small void in the bow with and access port. Nether of these should be considered air tight. I guess if you want to put some sort of air bladders inside your boat, that is up to you to carry the extra weight. I have been knocked down once or twice in 30+ winds and just letting the sails run, the boat righted.
  13. I am in an area where there are over twenty active J-22s. More then half have a notch cut in the combing, but all have a block (teak or man made material) raising the cam cleat above deck level. Don't forget to use a good sealer under the lifting block and use fender washers under the deck.

    Aft Airtank repair

    That similar question came up in Fleet 6, concerning the interior bulkheads the chain plates are attached to. The local measurer said it was OK, as long as after the repairs were complete, the boat was was re-measuered and certified.
