There has been a lot of interest in J class yachts this summer, due I think, to the increase in weed in local ponds.
I sail a New Zealand J class during the summer and would recommend it to anyone suffering weed.
However the supply of hulls had dried up, which meant scratch build or a planked kit.
There is a new supplier of these fibre glass hulls with from new moulds and offering a complete kit or part kit.
The quality is excellent so if your really wanting a J take a look here. www.jclasshulls.co.uk
