I am planning to be in Taiwan for a couple of months later this winter. I am planning to talk to the Ta Yang boat builders about building a new Tayana.
I would appreciate any information regarding the process. I would be particularly interested in hearing from individuals who have been through the process. Thanks.

Join the Tayana owners eMail discussion group here on Sailnet. Its quite active and if my Alzheimers permits such discussions have taken place over the past year. What impresses me with the Tayana/ TaYang, being a former dynamic structural engineer (etc.), is the quality of the build - I sit there reverse engineering everything and am quite impressed with the amount of safety factor engineered into their work. I did some laminate core samples and havent found any fatigue, etc. other than normal hydrolysis on a 16 yo hull. Downside for me is the lesser quality of metallurgy as is typical of most asian metals. My perspective is from rebuilding/refitting a 1984 T37 ...so that more carefully controlled ''modern alloys'' would be better.

Thanks for the feed back. I will join the Tayana email group. It seems like an active group.
I am wondering if I specified 316L stainless for all external stainless if I would actually get 316L? I don''t actually know how to test stainless. Thanks.

High quality marine grade bronze (with certification reports - certs) would be vastly superior to stainless in almost ALL uses. Other than cheap I have absolutely no idea why a builder would ever use stainless.... is severely attacked by salts, stress corrosion, etc.
