Tartan 3500 user/maintenance manual
I hope that someone can help. I need the maintenance and user manuals for a 1997 Tartan 3500. I need to know rigging tension, how to rig the reefing and other lines, cordage sizes and lengths, the various procedures for maintenance, haulout, winterizing, etc.

Does anyone have a manual for this boat? Tartan changed the 3500 in about 2004 and so the later manuals are not relevant.

Best regards,

I didn't see it here Tartan Yachts Model perhaps a call to Tartan will get what you need?

Tartan 3500 manuals
That site lists the brochure of a modern Tartan 3500 only. It does not have the technical detail that I need.

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?

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,

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....

Thanks, Philip. Do you have my e-mail address?

I believe you need at least 10 posts to upload.

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.

I now have the complete manual as a pdf. email me your address and I will send it to you. I have also posted it on tartansailing in "files"
