cracked skeg T37

The tartan 37 is a very well made boat. I purchased one a year ago that needed a total refit. It will hold it''s value for many years to come. If you can do the work yourself you could have a great boat. The skeg is removable you can go to the tartan website and order a knew one. Have a survey done and take the price of the repair off the boat.

Good Luck

I suggest joining the Tartan email list here on Sailnet and asking the question there. Lots better chance of getting info from some T-37 owners who have experience with that problem than you''ll have here on this board from someone who may have been on a T-37 once.

Also, get an opinion from the best surveyor you can find.

Other opinions may vary of course.

It sounds like she was put aground. Have it inspected together with the rudder post.

cracked skeg T37

Hi, I have been looking at a 1978 Tartan 37 which is for sale. The boat seems very well kept up with the exception of the following: The skeg where it attaches to the boat has a large crack and can be moved (1/4Ē - 1/2Ē) at the bottom of the skeg when applied with pressure. It puzzles me that this has not been repaired or that a repair is not holding. Is this a common problem with the T37Cís?
Thanks in advance, Richard.
