This thread is of great interest as I am co-owner of TT35 Hull#7. Build began in February (2018) and completion is projected to be July. To date, have been pleased with Ken Fickett and GH team. Will live aboard year round in the Keys and New England. To that end, have made a few interior changes to create more storage. Transport will be via commercial carrier. Currently co-own Rosborough (2003) RF-246 which has served us well. Rossi's 140hp Suzuki (2003) has been serviced annually and runs well. Rossi is for sale, btw. Appeal of TT35 was its resemblance to Rossi, but with more living space. Will be in Gainesville next month to view progress of build. Stay tuned...

At the rate things have gone, you might get your boat before hull #1 gets delivered.

Was disappointed to see that Spirit Song will not be doing the loop after all.

Apparently Spirit Song, hull #2, is now up for sale due to owner health issues. It isn't list on YW yet but can be found on the GH web site under "pre-owned trawlers". Certainly, a sad story.

Yes, sad indeed. Moral of the story— don’t wait. Go now.

Thanks. Simple, fun looking, road transportable boat. Seems rather cramped quarters.

Wonder how it would handle in BIG or confused follow sea with water breaking on-top-of/all-around the o/b's? Would they get drowned out... maybe have linkage or fuel lines torn loose. Worse yet, could a really violent following sea rip off the o/b cowlings or maybe break o/b off its pedestal attachment?

Of course, it is always best to boat in fair weather and calm sea conditions... but... I've been in some real hairy following seas that suddenly came up... the memory lingers forever.

Or you could just turn the boat around.

The TT35 is not a blue water boat.

They planned on doing the loop last year. On the other hand, not knowing the health problems, maybe the delay saved some issues. How disappointing to spend your last time boating getting ready for a trip you can't make. However, best to always be planning and working on the next thing, even if you can't do it all. I figure we'll have several years more cruises planned on the day we have to face we just can't do it anymore.
