Tmi 30

I just bought a 1980 TMI 30 that was sitting at a boat shop without knowing much about the history of this vessel and this thread was just the info I needed. She's a fixer upper for sure but I plan on a top to bottom restoration. The hull is solid but the engine is the big unknown. Supposedly the engine (atomic 4) was pickled several years ago.

Solari27 is on a distinguished road
Tmi 27' / 30'

A wee late responding to the TMI question but if this helps ??. I must have gotten a lucky one. I own "Solari". She was built in /81 & is a 27'er. Originally she sailed in Texas for many years, then northern Mn. and now I have her on the north shore of Lake Superior. Now lets get one thing straight......by no means am I a great sailor nor a Nautical Engineer but 1 thing I do know for sure... Solari is a better boat than I'am a sailor. I have been out on Superior with every wave crashing over her beam & bow a few times now and she brings her crew home safely every time....thats good enough for me! Someone mentioned keel separation. Two summers ago I was sailing around an island at midnight, hit reef-a-ferma at 5.8 kn and we stopped DEAD. I was at the helm, the companion way was open & I landed on the sole!! Ouch! Total damage was $200.00 in fibreglass to the keel and a few dents in my ego. I thought I was over there but Garmin said I was over here ! DUH ! Not sure what I can tell you except I would buy another one in a heart beat. If I can answer any of your questions please give me a shout. I'll try and help.

Kim

TMI / Ticon 30 quality

I have been totally restoring a TMI 30 and I have found many of the claims of poor quality to be somewhat questionable. The quality of glass work is of the highest quality that I've seen. The hull is solid as a rock, when walking around the deck one gets the impression that they are walking on a steel deck. Inside they did skimp a bit by using faux teak laminate on the bulk heads. Aside from that they used 100% stainless hardware everywhere and tons of teak trim. From the research I've done it seems that the only improvements that TICON made was to use teak veneer on the bulkheads, a feature that TMI would have included if requested. The deck hardware, mast, boom, premium ocean grade hatches, Edson helm & wenches were the same. When TMI was building them they had a complete options list, they were custom built to owners specs. In regards to an earlier post that the Ticon was Halsey Herreshoff's design, Herreshoff designed the Chrysler 30 (CY30) first, the design was unchanged as it was bought and built by both TMI and later Ticon Yachts. The TMI is the original Herreshoff design, the Ticon is the clone. Arguably one of the best 30'ers ever built.

Re: Help! Tmi 30

Almost any boat can be placed on a capable trailer. Go to sailboatdata.com, enter TMI 30 to get the specs on her. George
PS Watch the trailerable height with respect to overpasses.
