Re: CT Owner Group

My CT44 (Yves Marie Tanton) was my favorite mono ever. What a design! Essentially a heavy built canoe! Fast, stable, wonderful layout...38 or 39 feet of waterline...

Re: CT Owner Group

I looked at a "Flying Dutchman 50" before I bought the CT 47/49. I think it was a Tayana build. Your CT 44 sure looks like a slightly smaller poor man's Flying Dutchman. Underwater she appears about the same as the 47/49 except for the keel takes up a bit more of the overall length. Incidentally, in "Boatwatch" master guide to the sailboats of the world, your Tanton 44 and my Kaufmann and Ladd 47/ are adjacent, as CT 44 and CT 47. Small world eh?

I'm not sure what your saying here Zee....I know that when our boat was being built CT and Formosa were mortal enemies.

Not sure how a CT can be built anywhere else then at there own yard.

I only know about our boat and when/where she was being built.

And for the record, I think you should most definitely be allowed in the club.

Re: CT Owner Group

some of th ct 41s were built by formosa yachts, some built at ta chiao, some at..... so there were some ct by formosa 41s built --i believe they were done before 1975. after 1975, there seemed to be some disturbances and things changed--is difficult to get some of the history--i learned this when i was travelling online-- some is in the formosa owners group, which is now leaky teaky yacht club group on yahoo.

Re: CT Owner Group

Hey controversy! Cool... Part of the problem might well be that Formosa was the name of the island at one point.

Yes, I am that old.

I would vote to include anything built by the FREE CHINESE in the owners group. You probably can't separate all the craftsman at any rate, some of them might have gone back and forth as boat orders showed up.

I am tinkering with the idea of having the CTOWNERSGROUP website be fundamentally pictures, line drawings, specifications and such. Then attach to the leakyteakyyachtclub as the social arm of the group.

Some people need information. Some people like to attend parties. No body likes to do all the work required to catalogue all the pictures and documentation that can pile up. Managing an email forum can be a significant job as well.

So I am going to join leaky teaky and see how that goes. When I get a spare second, I will grab the ctownergroup name, and I will set there and point to leaky teaky for all conversation, but I will be willing to serve as a repository for the various models that were built on that Island.

Re: CT Owner Group

I fell in love with Formosas and CT's. Almost bought a Formosa 41 a few weeks ago, however I was out bid. I just want to hitch a ride for a day or two. If anyone in the Southern California would be interested in taking out a new-bee I would be vary thankful.

Re: CT Owner Group

I always loved those Seawolf and Seatiger ketches. (the 41/44 model with the coachroof lowered in the center portion) Great layout. Almost bought the SW once but discovered much of the boat appeared to be chopper gun layup! The CT yard didnt build that way but I think the Formosa yard did that a lot from what I've seen. Gotta be the prettiest boats around though...

Perfect condition CT41 is in the Long Beach Sailing Club. Make yourself a deal with Francis and Bill They are in this forum, but I can email them if you are interested. Their vessel is in better than new condition.

Re: CT Owner Group

formosa and ct were not chopper gun layup before 1980. they did use matt more than roving, but i have seen no chopper gun bs on mine. but then mine is a 1976, and hull is 2 inches thick. the sea wolf and sea tiger are 41 models. there is a sprit, not included in lod. but they ARE 41s.--

Re: CT Owner Group

in removal of hatches, look for the teak plugs hiding screws....
