Road Warrior is one of about twenty J/41's that were built by J/Boats between 1984 and 1987, and were notable campaigners in the IOR scene in the US over that period. The J/41, designed by Rod Johnstone, was designed to rate as a One Tonner (30.5ft IOR), but first came to prominence in the 1984 SORC, when Dazzler finished third in Class E and third overall, while a fractional-rigged version Alethea finished fourth in class and fifth overall.The masthead design carried a bit more ballast than the fractional variation, while Alethea carried a larger headsail and smaller mainsail than other fractionally rigged boats of the size.
Boat is very strong, stiff and well maintained. In 2015 when I bought the boat, all electricity was re-installed with separate service and start batteries, new B&G plotter (Vulcan 7), new B&G VHF radio and new B&G log and depth meter with indicator. New Raymarine heaviest EVO autopilot. New battery charger and shore connection. Other meters are original B&G.
Hull polished, boom sprayed 2020, boat looks top!
