Re: Tartan 27 or Tartan 30

I thought I'd check in with an update. Since I lasted posted, I visited a few more Tartans in my area. I saw a 27 today that was being offered for a low price, but had a lot of issues. Parts of the deck were bouncy and would need a recore and the cabin would need a good amount of work to bring it up to date. I could sail it this season with the deck as is, but it is something that I'd have to have taken care of. I've heard recoring isn't the most difficult job in the world, but I really lack the experience in fiberglass work to feel comfortable tackling it myself.

Anyway, I'm still looking for boats, and now leaning more towards the 27 than I had been before.
