The list was not meant to be inclusive - the E28 looks like it should be there. Thanks for adding it.

Lots of choices out there, although most of us like best the boat we own (or build...).

Heck, I'd even suggest adding an Ericson-built Olson 911LE to his list of models to consider. Not that I have any bias of course!

I'd say they couldn't go wrong with an O-34 for that matter.

The tartan is a very solid boat, one issue for offshore work is its very large cockpit, lack of bridgedeck and small scuppers. I really like ours for inshore sailing, but if I took it offshore I would build a bridgedeck. If built thick it would also reduce cockpit volume.

Adding better scuppers should be not too hard as the aft end of the cockpit is very close to the stern.

I had a Bristol 32- built 1976, and did a nice 14 month Atlantic trip. Cape May- Bermuda, Azores, Portugal, Canary Islands, Tobago - up the Caribbean island chain back to Bermuda and then Norfolk.

Boat did great- added a Monitor and inner Forestay and refrigeration. She carried plenty of water but had to add 5 jerry cans diesel.

A little tender but a very strong boat!
