Boat: Tartan T-30 Pound Foolish
Posts: 1
Hello from Narragansett Bay, RI

Hello all........ Have been having a great year on my "new to me " 77' Tartan 30 out of E. Greenwhich RI. Nortons Marina. Had one of the best days yesterday and plan on keeping her in for another 3 or 4 weeks. I figure , out late, in early....

Next project is to fit a 3 way ball valve on the raw water intake for winterizing and to run an emergency engine driven bilge pump. Got the parts, just need to make the time......

Welcome Aboard John,

We purchased Tivoli in East Warwick 6 years ago, love the area. We are now in FL. I actually miss the whole winterizing process, obviously not needed here. You will enjoy this forum..
