Tartan 34-2

Well,

The wife and I finally got a chance to see the inside of the boat today (we looked at it pierside on Saturday but couldn''t get an appointment with the broker until today). The Admiral was skeptical about there being enough room on a 34 footer until we got a chance to peek belowdecks. There seems to be plenty of storage, and we both felt it had more room than the Hunter 40 we looked at yesterday. We also both agreed that we would rather be living on a smaller Tartan than a bigger BeneHuntAlina.

We are seriously trying to get the finances in order to do this now before it is too late to head south for the year. Speaking of, what is everyone''s opinion for a cutoff date for heading south (we live in CT)? We are planning on doing 40 miles/day or so, stopping every night in a different harbor. The broker''s opinion was that the end of August was about the absolute deadline, but I feel that is fairly early.

Any and all opinions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks
