This awesome J30 has sailed in two REGATTAS this year, and the owner races her usually twice a month.

If the owner were to keep the boat, he would plan on replacing the hose containing the rope packing gland that encases the prop shaft....he says he would do this sometime in 2016 or 2017.

Otherwise, this boat is sail-ready!

This boat, per the owner, is and remains ready to sail!
