Go see the 1976 Tartan 37 in Oxnard. It's on the hard
right now getting the CB replaced, but it's fully set up and ready to cruise
. I went and looked at it, twice. It's in amazing shape, if you don't mind purple... It's been so well maintained it's scary, she even has stainless ports
Seriously, it's the best of the pre 1985 boats I've seen. I have no affiliation with it other than an appreciation for a well loved boat.
