Tartan34C will become famous soon enough
The Alberg 37 had a different main in the sloop and yawl configuration. Also I think she didnít work out as a yawl so a lot of them were converted back to sloops. She is sort of an example that proves the rule that just adding a mizzen and shorting the main boom without MOVING the main mast doesnít work.
All the best,
