Well...i've been sailing my Canterbury for several months now and i can truly say she is a pleasure to bring down to the lake and sail!! Although i didn't build my J, i still take great pride in showing her off to my friends. Thanks to Hans's fine craftmenship, she turned out to be a beauty Think i'll be ordering a second J from Hans. My first J needs a sister So get ready Hans, looks like you'll be a busy boat maker!!
Thanks Hans, Bob Larsen

Thanks Guys,

I was working on my garage and fell off and broke my leg. So now, it looks like I can get started on the Canterbury J boat!

It is really wonderful to see the Canterbury J's that you gentlemen have built and are sailing. My J has been a great source of enjoyment to sail since her completion this spring.

There appears to be one visible difference between the NZ version and the American version. The American version has a horizontal main boom and a vang angled from the bottom of the mast to the underside of the boom. The NZ version has the main boom angled up from the bottom of the mast and an almost horizontal vang. The NZ vang is in compression and the American vang is in tension. What is the reason for the difference? Is one method better mechanically?

The compensation lead weight mounted inside the hull is compulsory by class rules. As I sail alone and expect to continue to do so, would removing this weight result in instability problems? A good idea or a stupid idea?

Thank you in advance for answers.

Main Boom / Vang Arrangement


This boom/vang arrangement is common in the hotter boats of the Victoria class. It allows for clear air to the foot of the main and allows a lower roach to tack smoothly without rubbing over the boom. I'm not sure, but the geometry may help keep the main tighter when out while going downwind. The NZ guys are pretty hardcore racers and treat their C-Js like IOMs. It is really a shame to see their monokote decks on these beautifully classic boats. I'm really glad we decided to go with wood decks in the US.

Thanks Guenther and Don,

The Doc says I have to stay off of it for six weeks. So, it's time to start building!
