New member in SB

Hi Sailnet,
Just joined and am looking for a boat. Already posted my search in the Tartan form. Iím located in Santa Barbara.
Thanks to all the Sailnet contributors over the years. Your comments and reviews of different boats have been very helpful.

Re: New member in SB

Welcome aboard. Went to UCSB myself was back in SB visiting friends last month while my wife went to SB Sailing for an ASA cert.

My impression is Tartans are few and far between on the West Coast, as are slips in SB harbor. Do you already have a slip? Not sure if the slips are grandfathered in if so I have heard where people bought a boat just to get a slip.

Good luck with your search.

You are right about the scarcity of older Tartans on the west coast as well as slips in SB. I may have to buy the boat that come with the slip and deal with whatever that turns out to be while looking for a better one.

Good luck with your search! We just bought a Tartan 31 on the East coast of Florida. Great little sailboat...very well balanced, easy (and fun) to sail!
