dmac001 Thanks - I have the manuals.

manuals still available...

I have a manual for a 1997 Tartan 3500. The manual isn't very good because a great deal of information on tuning and performance measurement for the boat and engine are missing. However, it does provide information on some aspects of the boat that I have found valuable.

Do you want it? If so, send me an e-mail address to which I can e-mail the two files.

Best regards,

Catcher Gregson,

I have tried to help by sending the pdf I have created for you but find that sailnet does not allow me to send private messages. Nor does it allow of pdf's. Nor visibility of email addresses. Quite a forum. You may want to use tartansailing instead.

I find the assumed hostility level incorporated into the organization of Sailnet a touch off-putting.

My e-mail address is philip at I will not be using this forum again.

Tartan 3500 manual


I'll send you this .pdf privately since it would seem one cannot upload pdf's to this forum (?!) How can that be possible - I must be missing something....

gregson Hello, Philip,

I would be very appreciative if you could scan and send me any of the pages that pertain to rigging tension, the running rigging including how to rig the shuttle inside the boom, line lengths and sizes, etc. I would really ike to get the whole manual, but that is too much to ask you for.

Thanks for your offer,

Best regards,

Catcher Peter I have T3500 #131, 2001, and have all the original manuals and instructions including the rigging tensioning instructions. Would you like me to scan the relevant pages and post them?
