Re: Baba 35 vs Tayana 37 vs Hans Christian 38

Been through all the so called problems on my T37. Easily solved by a bit of elbow grease and a few bucks. We took off the last of the teak deck on the coach roof in January/February while at anchor in Thailand. Sure lots of small holes to fill, core in excellent shape as I had kept up with the deck seems and plugs.
Same with the Black Iron tank, cut that sucker out with a sawzall in New Zealand. New tanks in bilge and under port and starboard settee's, better weight distribution etc.

Any of these boats are going to require some work. Better the devil you know then....
Suggest you pay a little more for a well cared boat.
If you don't love working on boats then something with a little less teak and a lot more plastic may suit you better.
