    I bought it from a guy in Florida a few years ago. Haven't sailed it yet since I'm busy with Marbleheads, 914s, and EC12s at my club. Maybe this year.

    Fast "safe" boat....

    Voyager you type well with one hand. Enjoy the wet dream.
  7. Hunter gaskets have all been recalled and must be custom made.

    That's an impressive turnout! Nice pics
  9. I prefer the 12's and following the design intrigue leading up to the sailing itself.

    around the world in a 3'-6"x3'-6" boat

    Deja vu all over again. I took the attached photo around 1976. Drove to Orleans, MA to watch the "Dream" leave to break the trans Atlantic record. Boat was 7-8 feet I believe, skipper a 29 year old family man. I think ten days out a fishing boat spotted him 120 miles out. That was the last anyone ever saw of him.Very sad.

    Vintage Tanton 37' IOR Cruiser

    I knew a guy in 78 that got rid of his Ericson 46 and had a new Tanton 57' Ultra light built. Out of Marblehead, jet black with gold letters on the side "Desperado." Fast He had a Tanton 73/76 (not sure) Ultra light built in the 80s, black, etc. That one is still racing in CA as Velos or something like that. Good looking boats
