Re: getting a Tartan 34C ready for offshore trip
Love the T34C. It is the bigger brother of my T27.
You sound as if you are quite on top of your re-fit for going trans-Atlantic. The only system I'd be a little concerned about on a boat of that age are the chain plates.
There is a member here who was attempting a trans-At with his wife on a 50+' Gulfstar and I believe it was a chain plate failure in boisterous conditions that eventually forced them to abandon the boat and call for rescue; which nearly killed him. Perhaps you read doug sabbag's posts on the subject? It is quite a long thread.
