Re: Glander Tavana 33

Glad to see you post the pictures. Yes, I bought the boat from Marvin Jensen over in Mobile. It needed a LOT of work when I got it. Ours originally had a raised dinette too, but with the centerboard in the middle it made getting around it difficult. Plus it was rotten and not very nice. So, I ripped it all out and rebuilt it. I've spent the last year and one half working on it a few hours every day. Just got a new autopilot for it that I am installing at the moment. Maybe we can meet up with you sometime. We sail to Cape San Blas every now and then.

Yes I'm close to you in Tally with the boat in Shell Point. I'm glad to find another Tavana close by. Your boat is much further along than mine. We have a raised dinette where your L shaped settee is and my long range plan is to change it to the configuration you have. I too was a little worried about seaworthiness especially with the low ballast ratio but I've been in 6' seas with 25 kts and was very comfortable, I'm glad to her about your experience sailing in weather. Ive started pulling off the old hull liner and painting the interior and working on the exterior and new portlights and running rigging hardware and refinishing the woodwork and etc...

Maybe I have enough posts so that I can now put a link on here. This is a Google Photos album of my boat and the work I have done on it.

A few more pics. I redid all of the non-skid a couple months ago. I used Kiwi Grip from Jamestown Distributors and and very pleased with it.

Re: Glander Tavana 33

I need to say this about anyone who is looking at a Glander. When I purchased it I was very concerned about her sea worthiness because of the very shallow draft. However, I have had it out in the Gulf in 8 ft seas with 25 to 30 kts of wind (something I don't do often) but the boat handled it like a charm. They sail very well. Prior to this boat I had a Morgan 35 and an Endeavour 32 (I was pleased with both boats) but this boat seems more comfortable than them.

I had to redo the floor. During the years the boat sat it had got water on it (teak and holly plywood) and I had to replace it. Choose to go with a non skid type floor instead.
