Re: Cape Dory or Tartan

Thanks for the posts.
I've read about soft spots on decks due to wood (balsa wood?) moisture. Is the 1971 Tartan 27 a solid fiber glass deck? Does that equal less chance of soft pots over the years?

Also I've sailed a dory 25 and the interior is tight.
Is the Tartan 27 slightly larger compaired to the Dory 27 ?
