    I have been off the list for a while and compleated my J 29 in the spring. We had removed everything from the deck repainted the boat inside and out. I had also used a Clear Penetrating Epoxy Sealer from Dr Rot for all the through deck fittings. I then used Durabak on the deck and we are very pleased with the results. LOVE the boat.

    I have recently come across a guy looking to sell his J 29. The boat either had been grounded or the Yard bumped it while moving it. But is has some cracks in the hull aft of the keel. I am looking to buy it real cheap it has a trailer not sure how good of a trailer and I have a heated shop to put it in for the winter. My plan would be to fix it like new then sail it for a little while and sell it. I still have allot of the material left over from fixing my J 29 so I think if it is not too bad that it would be a fun project for the long winter here in Ohio. Any thought's? Do you think I am crazy.
