Apologies for my late post.

My father owned a Junior Seagoer from 1970 onwards.  The ketch "Nagada" was built in Madang, Papua New Guinea by Eddie Haering who built it for his personal use and then onsold to my father. Nagada was constructed of kwili frames and garamut planking. Nagada's plans note that the design was published in Boats magazine in 1955.

We sailed Nagada from Madang to Port Moresby in PNG, and later from Port Moresby to Brisbane Australia in 1974.

Hey RB,

I called and emailed you. I have some important things I need your help with. Please get back to me. If you need some time, that's fine but I want to know for sure.

PS, the personal messaging is times out when you try to send a message.

Thanks

M

Hi, Your database lists the Currawong 30 as first built in 1976. I have a Baker built Currawong built in 1972. And I think it is hull number 18. So your first built date needs some homework.

Thanks very much. Anything more about the Currawong you'd like to share?  Being from the US I will admit to ignorance on the subject.

Set up and sailed similarly, the j24 is a bit faster.  As the breeze comes on they are much faster.

The J24 is generally better build quality.

There is better tuning info available for the J24, to help you get the best out of the boat.


The S525 is probably considered better looking by most people.

Interior layouts are very similar.

You ask the merits of both.  Funny you used that word, since the Merit 25 is better than both, if you can find one.

Hi all,

New guest to this site, love what I see and happy I found sailboatdata.

I am thinking of doing a little racing again and have looked at a couple boats that are of interest.

Question, does anyone have any thoughts on the merits of a j24 vs a santana525?
I would be doing small fleet racing and not one design, just around the cans for casual racing. Both boats are about the same in price and both are in good condition with 2 sets of sails and no soft spots in the fiberglass.

Thanks for any thoughts on either boat.

Mory

Both are good. Some people larger people find the J/24 a little uncomfortable on deck.

Morgan 27  > Heritage Super 27  > Chrysler 27  > TMI 27

I really don't know.. I saw Charley Morgan on my facebook page.  This might be a first question to ask him.

I believe that this boat was originally part of the Heritage Yachts line up as a West Indies 28.  When Heritage Yachts broke up in ~1980 Chrysler bought a lot of their tooling.  I know for certain that they built/completed at least one West Indies 36 and sold it as a Chrysler 37.
