Hijinx is a well maintained stock one-design unmodified  J/120 and is ready to race and/or cruise, what ever your pleasure.  The keel and rudder have been templated and faired. The boat was originally called Oui B Five, and was actively campaigned in San Francisco's One Design fleet. She is in very good condition and has an extensive sail inventory to meet all conditions for both racing and cruising.
