Hi Mike , Id just go for it . Your probably going to sick to the ICW for most of the trip, I imagine . So if your not set on buying parts and pieces in CT , I would just say heck with it and go . There are plenty of places to pick up what your going to need as you head down the ditch .
Besides until you start moving the boat its unlikely that youll find out what she needs . IMHO and experience boats never break at the dock its allways when your underway . Thats when the gremlins wake up . Its probably the best way to give the boat a good shakedown before you jump outside and give her some blue water.
So if thats your plan (ICW till your happy with the boat) I say go for it .
BTW Tartan will most likely be my next cruiser although I have never owned one the reputation preceeds itself . Great choice . Have fun with your new toy and get a Tow boat deal from one of the big outfits before you head out.

best of luck with it
Paul

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I know this is an old thread, but I have the same question. I am looking at a 1985 T-34. I am not sure when they changed the interior layout to the to the more modern look, but this one has the old lay-out. Any comments about systemic problems in th construction or design?

The 34-2 is essentially an update of the Tartan 33. The 33 had two different interior layouts, but I was under the impression the 34 only had one. Lots of info out there on the 33 and its issues and I'm pretty sure the 34-2 is very similar. Basically a pretty solid boat if its been taken care of.

Here's a good article on the 33, much of which should pertain to the 34-2:
