Re: New Horizons 26? Swing keel fixed in up position?
Yes, the Tartan came out shortly after the New Horizons and Greene sort of blames the Tartan's success for his lack of sales. It looks like a good boat to me though, even without a functioning centerboard.
I currently live on the Great Lakes, but I plan on sailing her in the ocean eventually. She does still have the Atomic 4, though I have no idea if it runs. I don't think it's been started for at least 10 years. My friend has a Pearson Ariel 26, which came with an Atomic 4, so hopefully he'll be able to help me get her started. I'll definitely check out the group though. Thank you.
Now I just have to figure out what to do about sails. I was hoping that I wouldn't have to custom order, but maybe I can find some sails that are close enough.
