I have built a website for San Juan 26's and 7.7's, containing manuals, brochures, and reviews. I'm seeking additional photos of either boat for inclusion. Feel free to stop by.

Pros:
Cons:

I own a 1977 SJ-26 with a shoal keel and centerboard hull # 210 .With a keel weight of 2000 # and a displacement of 4400 # it is a very stable sailing platform .I have an OMC saildrive that I'm very happy with although it uses twice as much fuel as the manual says it should . The hull seems strong and well built and blisters havn't been a problem . There are a few gelcoat cracks in the cockpit locker area and around a couple of the stantions but for the most part the gel coat is in good condition for a 77 . The rigging and mast are well designed and should handle even the worst conditions . Down below there's 5'9" headroom and a lot of nice teak . The galley has a sink and 2 burner alcohol stove and a huge ice box under the companionway steps . I replaced all the wiring because most was lamp cord twisted and taped .Storage is fair . The centerboard cable travels through the table post so it can never be removed but it does have folding leaves on each side .I'm very happy with the boat sailing wise .I can usually keep up with or pass other boats similar in length on all points of sail except downwind , where it seems to go like a snail . I've sailed in 25 knot winds with a double reefed main and a jib in great control and 15 to 20 degrees of heel . I'd recomend a storm jib for wind higher than that . I trailer fairly often and its about an hour job to rig it and get the mast up with th mast raising system which works well . Overall I'd recommend the boat to anyone looking for a solid stable pocket cruiser .

This is a great boat, love the interior with standing headroom, I could do without the ice box right behind the companionway ladder.
It is a big pain getting in and out of that. Sailing wise she is great, very forgiving, and can handle a lot of wind. Hull is extremely well build. On mine there are no blisters, had it surveyed prior to buying it and for a 1975 vintage boat it came out with a good report.
