New J-22 sailboat

This is my new J-22 sailboat. The J-boats are popular one-design racing sailboats. I used to crew on a J-24 version of this boat in Long Island Sound many years ago, and loved the way they handled.

This boat is 22 feet long and has a very small cabin with just enough room for sail/line storage and a small V-berth to sleep in. But it has a hugh cockpit and foredeck with plenty of working room. Everything about the boat is designed to go fast.

Just put in the water, not rigged yet
