Congratulations on your new purchase
. I have always liked the older Tartans and have heard from many sources that they are well built boats. Don't know if you have read An Embarrassment of Mangoes, but it is an interesting read. The author and her husband did several trips from Toronto through the thorny path, and down to Trinidad and back in their Tartan 40. Served them well.
We ended up with an IP40. Just starting to get to work on her for spring. Perhaps we will see you somewhere "out there".
