I'm looking at getting a 30-35 footer for Lake Michigan. Love the concept of the Tiger-- fast, simple, no BS. Are there many Tigers on the lakes? Do they ever get together for one-design?

You just had six of them get together for the Verve in August. Three from Lake Mich, two from Lake Erie. There is one from Lake Ontario,

The guys from Louisville travel well too. They have been to Chicago a couple of times and the whole gang (mostly) has participated in the Winter Series in Florida a few times. Get one and get in on the fun!!

The boat can stand up to some pretty ruff abuse and weather. As with all things it takes time and practise to get good. There are already 3 boats in Chicago and 2 on Lake Erie. Would love to see another tiger on any of the great lakes.

To the OP - Moonlight, I understand you found your boat in Atlanta. Congratulations and welcome to the Great Lakes FT10 Fleet. We've raced against that hull with Doug & crew and they were very tough to beat down in Pensacola. I may try to bum a ride when I visit family in the TC area over the summer. Happy Holidays - see you on the water!
