Does anyone have any information on the Tartan 30 vs 3000? I am familiar with the 30's and enjoy the way they sail. I don't know much about the 3000's other than physical characteristics, such as deeper draft. Am interested in sailing performance of 3000 vs 30.

My sailing is limited to daysails, weekend outings, and the annual 1-2 week summer cruise.

I recently moved to Wilmington, NC after being boatless and homeless for 1.5 years (work kept me in hotels and long-term apartments in CA and PA). Unfortunately I'm still not very familiar with this area. I am looking for a boat in the 30' range. I will either keep it in Southport or Wrightsville Beach. I have heard great comments about the sailing in Pamlico and Abermerle sounds. Would the Tartan 3000's deeper draft (> 5 ft) prevent sailing in these Sounds?

Thank you for any comments!

dbruce85 - thanks for the tip on Good Old Boat. I will check out the March issue.

moxiesml - what engine does your boat have? I noticed some of the 3000's are equipped with the Universal 5411. Suspect this might be slightly underpowerd with only 11 hp. Any comments?

Thanks.
