2948# displacement w/ J-24 class specified equipment included
Bavaria II (USA1965) is in good condition. The hull is solid and dry. It
has never seen salt water. Some cosmetic spider surface cracking, mostly
around the old style hatches. The boat is dry sailed so their is no paint
on the bottom. The bottom and keel are not very pretty to look at, but they
have been sanded (2000 grit) and polished to a mirror finish. Occasionally
raced short handed so the pole lift and guy are still lead to cockpit and
cabin top winches still in place. Other than that the boat has a "standard"
racing setup and current class measurement certificate.
1993 Melges all aluminum trailer is in excellent condition... its probably
worth as much as the boat! Single axle make for easy handling in the boat
yard, but we have traveled all over the midwest and it handles very well up
to about 65mph.
1999 5HP Johnson long shaft w/ external & internal fuel tanks is in good
Other stuff included and done:
2 mains, 2 genoas, 3 spins, & 1 jib - all in fair to good condition
Lemar 30ST main winches & 2 cabin top 8x winches
2 spinker poles (1 aluminum & 1 carbon fiber)
New non-skid painted deck
Light weight traveler track with windward car
Light weight racing engine transom mount
All sheets and lines in good condition
Vermiculite has been removed w/ 3/4" floor and access panel to lift point
Sink drain has been sealed and depth gauge removed... speedo is the only
Anchor/Steaming light and all in mast wiring has been removed
Mast at minimum height and back at max "J" dimension
2 winch handles
Danford anchor & rode (oversized for racing, but on Lake Michigan I wanted
a bigger anchor)
Full set of cushions... recovered and never used
In general the boat is ready to race and it is fast. My wife has won the
women's nationals and gone to the Worlds, so it has good history. The boat
is no longer set up for cruising. And, because of its age it is probably
not of interest to the most hard-core racing teams, but it is an excellent
first racer or training boat.
All of the upgrading & refitting I've done myself and I love talking about
and teaching the process. So, feel free to give either of us a call for
more details and history.
