J 161

Well this is my first ever blog.
This Fairey finished boat is being redecked with the help of my friend Ian, Jollyboat deck maestro and owner of the very beautiful J261 Jimini.
I have the Jollyboat owners association records and have been trying to keep a list of active boats.
Please let me know if you have a Jollyboat.
I have been phoning and emailing to get as many Jollyboats as are saillng to Bosham Classic boat revival 25 and 26th June.
At least 5 boats going and of course lots of classic day boats and CVRDA boats.

This is why the decks needed replacing - extensive areas of delamination.

Rules & Measurement Form – Now online

We now have three sets of Jollyboat Rules and a Measurement Form on this site.

Of course, as the Owners Association is not currently established, there is nothing or nobody to say that you have to stick within these rules! In reality few of us have stayed exactly within the last known ratified set of rules from 1967, although most have tried to stay within their spirit.

There is some confusion due to the fact that we know that there was a set of amendments to the rules prepared for the 1971 AGM, which included a wide set of changes that reflected a wish by the class membership for a much looser set of rules allowing for some development by the owners. This included an extension to mast height and freeing of the rudder shape.

There was also a set of proposed rule amendments made in 1993, which we have, but as the class association was never re-formed, we can only presume that they were never ratified and we can only guess as to the support they had then or now from Jollyboat owners.

Anyway, they are now available from this website here.
