Tartan 31 or 28?
I am looking at a Tartan 31 and a 28.
One of biggest concerns is the chainplates on the 31. It looks like bulkhead mounting compared to the stainless strap in the T28 that is secured to the inside of the hull.
Are there problems with the Tartan 31 chainplates? The few boats I have seen photos of all "look" fine and most of them are more than 20 years old.
I like the 31 a bit better, there is more room in there. The 28 is nice as I could use the flu keel just about anywhere.
Anyway, if anyone has some first hand experience on the boats I would appreciate any feedback. Hoping to go ahead with offers next week.
