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.

  • 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: BoatUS.com: Boat Reviews by Jack Hornor, N.A. - Tartan 37

I also highly suggest you check out: Tartan37.com • 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... :-)
