Make Tartan
Model 34C

Packages Sitting on the Hard in our Yard
History Bought off of E bay and shipped to Virginia for $2,700. PO named her Bodacious and sailed her in Florida keeping the A-4 gas engine alive. We/I have since replaced with a yanmar 3ym30 with 320 hours harvested from our potential dumpster filling 3rd boat.
moved traveler to companionway hatch cover.
new transom teak. one soft spot on deck at starboard chain-plate cut dug out and replaced. Filled old hawes holes at bow. new hole coming when we fiugre out the windlass. Centerboard rebuilt stuffed back in and is stuck pretty well at the moment.

Navigation (garmin, charts, sextant)
new panel blue sea 1 a/c- 2 d/c

Ship Communications (VHF, Sat Phone, Shortwave, etc)
sweet new radio Icom with ais

yanmar 3ym30 with hopefully less than 350 hours still works ok...replaced mixing elbow... new vetus lift and exhaust run to transom is in.

really need to make a yard trailer...
would consider making a frame and having inspected for use as a road trailer. need to find plan to modify to fit her and any other boats we might need to move
