In 1975 Rod Johnstone finally decided to build the boat he'd been planning since completing design correspondence school 10 years earlier. Thirty years later, the J/24, the boat based on that first garage-built vessel is the most popular recreational offshore keelboat in the world. The story of J/Boats' success, as inspiring as it is unlikely, unfolds for the first time in this illustrated history, which tells how Rod and his brother Bob turned one homebuilt boat and a $20,000 investment into the company that dominates the performance-oriented sailboat market today.
