Re: getting a Tartan 34C ready for offshore trip

Hi Tom,
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.

What boat yard are you using for your T34C?
