Cheers and Fair winds, MJC
Mike's a great resource. I manage the primary web site for the Tartan 37 Association, and he helped us switch to a name domain and then started the Tartan 37 Forum soon after. It's been fantastic - he'll contribute valuable insights here as well.

Tom

N12-23. I think beers are in order. Your boat has to be a beauty, I'll keep an eye out in the big slips. S&S really made some sexy lines.

Old Harbor? Or did they renumber the new floaters on the South pier?

Yes. Although we refer to ourselves as Northsiders.

^^^ Thanks! Lack of wind forces us to ride flat all too often so you gotta ride while you can. (Though the older I and the boat get, the less the rail sees the water. Used to be fun, now it's just "overpowered".)

Of course... How rude of me. We've been there about 35 yrs so I do that now and then.

I'm pretty sure Hull #2 is on the forum now. This is what the Association has listed.
Quote:
Hull #2: DEBRA --(K/CB)-- John in Laurel, MD - the boat is berthed in Pasadena, MD e-mail (This T37 completed a circumnavigation as TIGGER, with former owners Sharon & Dave. Read about the voyage in Sharon's book: "The Oceans Are Waiting - Around The World On The Yacht Tigger.")
Cool parents. Might have to check out that book sometime.

Is John on our forum? Would love to see how she is doing. My parent totally rock. My mom's book is great, very funny, and pretty darn honest about the cruising life and about Tigger. I always break the rules when talking about moms book.... but an autographed copy can be had...thats all I can say
cheers,
Erika
