The balsa core in the Tartan 3000 is above the waterline in the bow section.It is forward of the head bulkhead in the v berth. The bow sections are flat sided and it helps to prevent "oil canning". I replaced the hull liner fabric on our 3000 and didn't see evidence of coring anywhere else in the hull.The deck is cored.

Solid glass below waterline, balsa cored above. Deck cored. Got this information from Tartan factory when I was looking at a T3000.

Definitely not a bluewater boat. Too light and not designed for LD cruising.

Tartan 3000 is featured in this month's issue of "Good Old Boat".

Hello.. probably posted in the wrong spot.. again::
Is the hull of the Tartan 3000, 30' cruising boat cored?
And if you know? How are they bluewater sailing..
