how was the tartan ?

I bought a 1975 tartan 30 last October. Hull number 298

I have just gone over it to launch for this season

The hull is solid. The keel/ hull joint needed to be resealed. the chain plates are leaking. I peeled paint away from about 10% of the hull where it easily flaked off, not one blister to be found, the glass is solid !
leaky chain plates are normal, they seem solid and are an easy fix.
The deck and all the fiberglass on the top is solid.

The boat is solid to sail very stable. I am inexperienced , I had this boat doing 21 knots sailing her from Grand Manan to Nova Scotia when I bought her last fall ! And the second fastest GPS speed on a different day was 19 Knots !!!

you wont be disappoibnted if the boat is solid
