Great boat overall. 7600 lbs. Fin keel. Exellent in heavy wheather. Good windward performance. Straight-forward rig. After over 4 years of maintenance I'm very happy.

Pros:
Cons:

Great first cruiser; 2 adults, 2 kids travelled comfortably for 4 weeks; separate berths. Handles well to windward, stiff. Likes to settle in at 5 knots. Requires upgrading from original to allow sufficient water, holding tank & fuel capacity. No backing plates on stanchions. Recommend 15 hp, xtra long shaft o.b. w/sail prop for no-nonsense motoring. Fiberglas is well done, no blisters. Watch out for corroded aluminum rudder shaft; waterlogged rudder - suggest replacing.

Pros:
Cons:

Dual aft quarterberth layout. Great headroom, large cabin.
Boat handles well in heavy seas. We bought her as a family cruiser and we haven't been disappointed. For her age, she is in great shape and is well built. Only drawback is the 7 hp gas inboard, which we'll be upgrading this spring.

Pros:
Cons:

27ft,x 9ft, x 3'10" fixed draft, 6000#.
This is an excellent cruiser/racer.
Racing in MORC and PHRF
The boat I think was a way ahead of it's time for room and sail handling.
The boat came with a wheel but have since changed back to a tiller, not much room with the wheel.
A lot of deck areas around the chain plates had to be replaced because of the rotting balsa core and poor care from previous owner. We removed the forward and aft lowers and went with one single chain plate with one set of lowers. This allowed us to install a small track and purchase a 100% blade. Fixed the slop in the rudder from the main bushings wearing out by pouring epxoy resin into the rudder tube. Works very slick now. 15hp outboard long shaft works well but need some advice on how to get more power for river travelling. Not sure what prop to use. I would like to see if anyone has tried changing the mast by installing swept back spreaders to get some prebend in the mast. We added a traveler at the back of the cockpit to give us more control of the main sheet. Would like to be able to get more mast bend.

Pros:
Cons:

This boat came from California abt 6 yrs ago. I got it from a local dentist and added Raytheon autopilot. It gives me 6 n.m. easy and the UNIVERSAL 30 h.p. gasoline motor runs f.b. I added a new plastic gas tank. Tune up kit is cheap down here ($ 50). I sail in the Gulf of Nicoya and "My Boat" is based at the Costa Rica Yatch Club in Port Puntarenas. The kitchen area was modified for the nav station & ham radio
I added solar panels. Wife is not vy happy but I dont like cooking inside. Better a coke and a sandwich for an evening sunset. Phone is 506 282 52 80.

Pros:
Cons:

Just bought the boat, is in good shape for year, however do have
a rudder problem. It is split ( fiberglass ) at top in the aera of rudder / post joint. It seems to be stainless steel shaft, no corrosion noted. Have a question about the rig. The mast measures aprox 38', and am wondering if this is tall rig. Have Yanmar 8 hp diesel with salt water cool. jc@troubleshooter.mv.com

Pros: Gentle forgiving boat to sail and great cabin space
Cons: sealing of chain plates

this is a great boat that can handle as much weather as the crew can. She lives well in the harbour or on anchor. Has lots of beam in the water so she doesn't role much with the waves. The atomic 4 will probably run for ever.
