Re: 40' Bluewater Cruiser Choice

Hey Savoir - bought the 89 Tartan 40 back in November so plenty of details to sort out - I will be bugging people on other threads with questions about SSB, chart plotters, etc.

Re: 40' Bluewater Cruiser Choice


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".
