Hi FC,
I'm not sure what Ron will do, but I'll probably wind up with a combination of items I make (I hope) and items I buy from Roger. His prices are actually better that some of the Pekabe stuff that is for sale on eBay. I just purchased some blocks for my boomvang setup from longbeachrc on eBay.

Hi Guys here are some pictures of my new Cradel design. Sorry I have not as yet posted any more pictures of the dubble jib setup but I hope to get that done as soon as I can take the pictures.

Hans,

Beautiful design. Plus you can carry the C-J with the sails mounted. What is the weight of your new cradle?

I am very interested in seeing more pictures of the schooner rigging.

The the total weight of the cradle is 2 and 1/2 pounds. This is useing 1/2 inch ply but you could use 3/8 and it would be much less. You could also cut holes into the base . Hope to get more pictures of the dubble jib setup this weekend.

Today was a great day weather wise for sailing. I brought my C-J and Kevin brought his beautiful #551 C-J he just finished building. He did a great job tuning the sails, it is fast.

A nice video of what I assume are Canterbury J's racing in the UK. Anyone know if they are, in fact, Canterburys?

J Class sailing at Etherow. (5 min 28 sec)

Kevin,

They are definitely Canterbury J's. I searched the Etherow Model Boat Club and found this link on their site. This is the guy making the hulls for the UK. I noticed in the video the yellow boat #99 was in front. Maybe I should re-paint mine?

The C-J's are rigged the same as the down under C-J's.

Another Canterbury J

Well, thanks to a couple of people who have been campaigning heavily to build the fleet in Riverside, (You know who you are) another C-J is on it's way.

Seriously....should be fun. Four makes the start of a good fleet!!!

Ed,

I did a statisical analysys of the winningest color in C-J racing in NZL, the UK and USA before deciding on the color of #551. Looks like my research may have paid off!!!!

Interesting that the UK boats have molded keels with the ballast installed internally. Much easier to build, but I'd think they might end up a bit more tender when sailing. Maybe it's my imagination, but it almost looks like the boats in the video heel just a bit easier than yours or mine!!!???

Rich,

Congratulations on your C-J order. That will make 4 C-J's in our club, I hope we can get some more. Now we need to work on Robert.

Hi Guys, Just a note about the UK boats, they have two molds there. One is the Canterbury J ( the same as I build) the other is the internal keel "J" that is not a Canterbury J Class. I am told that the lead that I make fits inside (I sent a hull and keel over there for comparison) so the hull must be wider in the keel aera. As far as I know they have as yet not given this new hull a name. It may be called the "Nottingham J" They sail side by side in the UK.
