Tartan34C will become famous soon enough
I donít think anybody is going to encourage you to do this. You can find better boats for the same money if you look around a bit. That boat is lightly built to put it politely and has problems because of the balsa core in the deck just for a start. You will spend much more then the boat is worth and have a so so boat after you are done. To put the same time and money into a boat that has lasting value so you can recover some of your investment is a better choice.

Now having said that if you want to do this and donít care about the money then go for and have fun. After all when you spend money for a vacation its money spent with no return and this will be the same thing. You will spend lots of money and just have memories afterwards.
All the best,
Robert Gainer

Edit. I was wrong and Knotaloud is brave enough to recommend the project. I wonder if he will feel bad after this turns out to be a mistake. VBG
