Boat US article on Tartan

The latest BoatUS magazine has a great article on the Tartan/C&C controversy. It did a great job on the some of the lawsuits that started the decline of quality control problems Tartan has. It mention a certain discussion website () that took the discussion off their bulletin board due to liability issues.
It sounds like the new owners of Tartan are trying to fix their problems. Time will tell. I still won't buy one.
Here is the online link: BoatU.S. - December 2010

@ Melrna...Why wouldn't you buy one? You must mean one of the 00 series? with Epoxy hulls? Something wrong with the older Tartans?

The older ones are complete junk and the people sailing them, especially the ones with a culinary bent to their skill set, are clearly lunatics in need of forcible hospitalization...

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.

And this would be something different from the obvious schizophrenic disorders of those in the multihull set....

Actually, multihullers only suffer from psychosis and megalomania...

He's right, except for his use of the word "only".

Interesting how Jackett describes that all the name changes over the years were done to protect the company investors. No mention of what that did to their customers...
