    T3800 - Location of Macerator Pump?

    I have a 97 Tartan 3500 and the macerator pump is directly aft of the outboard edge of the holding tank, which is under the quarter berth on the port side.

    The next day was another low vis run down the river and a motorsail to the locks at St Peters NS. This is the entrance to the Bras d’or lake system. Quiet overnight on the wall waiting for the locks to open in the morning. No services but a very pretty spot.

    We left the next morning in almost zero vis and headed for Liscombe Lodge. This involved a long run up a tight river estuary in low vis but it was worth it. We draw 6.5 feet and it was no issue at all. Nice guest berth with power and water, but the laundry gear was not working and the washrooms...

    We departed St Margarets Bay and took a visitor berth for a few days at the Shearwater marina. This is an air force base marina that was very friendly but has no power or water. We did some provisioning and minor repairs and set off for Shelter Bay for a night at anchor. Decent wind but vis less...

    Thanks mate! We are having a great time on the genoa alone for now, and plan on some time on the main then learning both together. The boat is very forgiving and we have lots of help from friends. Super experience so far. Getting her back in her berth is the hardest part so far!

    So, our new to us Tartan 35 is tucked in her berth at the Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club having traversed the 750ish NM from St Margaret’s Bay NS. It was an epic trip up the coast of NS in 1/8 mile vis in fog the whole way. We actually anchored in beautiful Shelter Bay NS and left again in the...

    Searching for a new to me interim boat <30ft.

    The Ontario is interesting, as it is a full foot wider beam, two feet longer but a full foot less draft than the CS30. OTOH, the CS30 has no brightwork on deck and I love the oval topped hatch to the front berth/head. Also, the diesel is sooo accessable!

    Searching for a new to me interim boat <30ft.

    I am mulling over an Ontario 32 for my first boat right now but my dream boat is a CS 30. Sadly there are slim pickings out here.
