Taking a Tanzer 26 trans Atlantic is a brave thing to do. These are built to be not much more than weekenders and are built very lightly. I hope you are not only reinforcing the structure but also the rudder and its mounting and thats a pretty weak little rudder mounted on thin gudgeons and very light pintles .... its not going to stand up against Atlantic waves. The rigging and chainplate mountings are also very light for that kind of crossing.
