Tiawan boats Farrington schooner /Opinions/ comments?

Hey sailors, me love you long time.
wait wrong greeting! i have enjoyed reading on this site for some time and now that Im again looking to squander my kids inheritance I seek the advise and noble opinions of you barnacled folks. I grew up or should I say spent my earlier childhood on a Bill Garden ketch and have always loved the classic design and the sound of a bow sprit connecting with a piling at the fuel dock. I have had my fill of wood hulls but still lioke my nails done with spar varnish so Im going to buy a much malinged Tiawan center cockpit ketch. I have some experience with Formosas and Vagabonds and know full well their shortcommings. Does anyone have any info or experience with These 3 Farrington schooners that have been on yacht world in Florida for some time? Thanks, Jim

Hi Barnacle Jim,
I've spent the last eight years refitting my Farrington 52, Kai Kanani. Let's share.

Regards,
Craig
