What's wrong with your drive pinion? I can't imagine teeth ever breaking. If it is worn on the inside so it is sloppy on the bearings/spindle a good machinist can probably sleeve it.

I'll be stepping into to Div 2 sailing with Paragon. Snowflake is definitely my favourite race series; competitive racing in cool dense air. Lots of power for speed. I wish it wasn't so far to bring...

I would say that is a pretty darn good price actually. Over the past few years, depending on condition J/30s run about 15-25K USD on the east coast. They tend to carry a slight premium on the West...

It'll be 28-30. Weekend before the August long is what we target.
