1997 J BOATS 40' J/120 Storm Warning

Storm Warning is a very well-kept J/120 that shows pride of ownership. She has a long, successful racing history.  Originally sold new by RCR in 1997 and then sold to the current owners in 2015.  Always sailed on freshwater Lake Erie.

She has an exquisite vinyl wrap (no waxing the topsides!) showing a thunderstorm & then fading to blue skies.  If it doesn’t suit you, the wrap can be removed to the original white gelcoat with blue double boot stripe beneath.

She has a faired bottom and standing rigging is pulled every fall for winter land storage.  She has a custom-made canvas cover with access door to cockpit.

She features all these recent NEW equipment and upgrades:
