Late 70's Tartan 37

  • Hull to Deck joint
  • Rudder Post
  • Deck core for moisture, especially where owners have added things and not properly bedded them
  • Thu Hulls
  • Fuel Tank
Heres a good article: Boat Reviews by Jack Hornor, N.A. - Tartan 37

I also highly suggest you check out: • Index page and Home

Thanks guys..... I have my new reading glasses on and ready to dive in....

I also looked at a mid 90's 3500 today which was very nice but a bit out my price range.... This is going to be a "learning" boat to me and not ready to spend 100k...

Not that I am new to boating - just sailing... Should be interesting... :-)

I forgot the mention, if its a Centerboard, inspect all pieces of it
