Parts & Accessories for J/70 Sailboats
West Coast Sailing is your source for J/70 sailboat parts and accessories. The J/70 J/70 is your ticket to fun! J-Boats designed this lively, but easily-sailed sportboat to fulfill the needs of a diverse range of sailors—from performance one-design and club racers, to sailing families. A vertical lifting keel makes trailering and ramp-launching a snap. The large cockpit comfortably holds three adults or four mixed crew. Since its launch in 2012, the popularity of this 22-foot superstar has soared, with growing fleets and regatta action worldwide. Superbly built by CCF Composites, Bristol, R. I., the J/70 was named 2013 Boat of the Year by Sailing World Magazine.
Use the diagram below to reference Harken part numbers to appropriate application on your J/70 sailboat. Parts recommendations are offered as a guide for common applications.
The 493 Underdeck furler lowers tack height, maximizing sail area. A ball bearing swivel on the headstay, allows you to raise/lower the jib or adjust luff tension. The jib halyard exits the mast and attaches to a 40 mm 2621 Carbo fiddle; the control line leads through a 40 mm 2148 T2™ Loop block and adjusts using a 396 29 mm Carbo Pivoting Lead block with Carbo-Cam.
The 5:1 mainsheet system features 2148 and 2151 Carbo T2 blocks that hang from a Dyneema® strop attached to the boom. A 2621 57 mm Carbo fiddle rides on the traveler car. A 57 mm 2135 Carbo ratchet atop a 144 swivel base finishes the system. The switchable ratchet allows the skipper to turn the ratchet off in light air, or on when grip is needed.
A 40 mm 2156 Carbo® Pivoting Lead block attaches to the back of the mast. The spinnaker halyard exits the mast at centerline, runs through the 2156, and cleats at a 150 aluminum cam. The 2156 has a weight savings of almost 20% over the stainless version it replaces without sacrificing load capacity.
