    talk to me about the tartan 30

    not sure, I live in the land of wooden boats and literally every wooden boat builder I've talked to or worked with prefers G-flex over regular west system epoxy for that reason primarily.

    because G-flex absorbs more easily into wood which in turn makes for a stronger bond since it's not just sitting on top of the surfaces.

    Probably a bad idea: super cheap Farr 39 ML

    those were fun boats, sailed on one here in maine. very quick in light to moderate air. that being said: run for the fucking hills from that boat.

    got some pieces of solid mahogany planed down to the correct thickness, heading to the yard today to cut out the rotted areas and G-flex these new pieces in. well provided it's warm enough in the boat to do the work, between electric space heaters and my propane heater I'm pretty sure I can get things warm enough.

    Adding roller furling - any recommended online guide, etc.?

    I have a harken on one boat and a Walden on the other. Both function perfectly and I’m very happy with both.

    Wow, makes me realize what a deal I got

    talk to me about the tartan 30

    As I’m gifting more into the boat I am continually surprised at how stout she’s built. Like that bulkhead for example. Didn’t expect it to be so thick. Other boats this size that I’ve owned the bulkheads have been half that thick.

    bingo, thanks for that

    I started pulling off trim and such yesterday, the whole bulkhead is 1 1/4in thic and aside from a 2-10in strip near the bottom and a 2-3in area the ret of the bulkhead is sock solid. definitley not going to replace the whole bulkhead, just going to scarf in some new wood with G-flex

    not sure the differences, I only got to sail this boat 3 times before we pulled it for the season.

    yeah for a little boat it's certainly not afraid of a breeze.

    thats impressive. we'll see how this little boat does next summer in the beer can series. it didn't come with a spin so for the time being we'll be in cruising class.

    talk to me about the tartan 30

    yeah, the old engine being non functional at some point would be my guess. I'll get on the moyer forum, the transmission does have an issue slipping in reverse. I'll be on the boat tomorrow and I'll snap some photos of the bulkheads, scroll up this page though and you'll see a few photos of them that I posted a while back.

    damn really? I guess sailed well they can still be competitive

    not sure, the boat has an atomic 4 that runs well, not sure why it has a bracket on the stern.
