Re: Ta Chiao-Built Boats

Thanks, James. believe it or not, I have been a member of the C&SF for some time, but, maybe you are welcoming me to the CT Fold. I must apologize, I see that I mis spelled Ta Chiao. I have always been a better reader than speller.

Re: Ta Chiao-Built Boats

I have a 1979 CT 41 ketch. Lots of work, but a solid boat. Replaced the engine (biggest job), and re-caulked the teak deck. Been varnishing and painting. A joy to sail.

You'll want to join this group:

LeakyTeakyYachtClub : LeakyTeakyYachtClub

Yes, we have a sense of humor about these boats we love........

Re: Ta Chiao-Built Boats

my formosa 41 was built at formosa boat builders, in taipei. i love her much and my leaky teaky has the bestest evahh decking, as it is more fg than wood fill, and they are abuse-able boats. this one was laid over on the santa barbara breakwall for a week and there is no sign of any kind of damage from that...is awesome. easy to repair and everything i have had to repair is in easy reach. is awesome.
there are things to fix, yeah--but, remember, they were built in 1970s..looong ago and is time for these repairs to be done if they have not yet been effected.
and they actually do sail well.
