Excellent all weather, all conditions boat. Ideal cruiser for someone starting out who wants a strong, forgiving yet sporty boat. I love mine so much I've never felt the urge to get anything bigger. By the way, I sail in the Gulf of Maine and Bay of Fundy, and this craft handles everything.

Great boat, good boat for someone starting out. With a small investment, and a little work you can have a quality boat that's safe , and fun to sail. I sail out of Newport RI, it's great for the bay , and a trip to the islands.

Replaced centerboard, weakness in org dsgn. Changed to two speed winches, my crew loves them. Put on inside tracks for the #3 & #4. #4 is a full blade. Main is loosed footed. Great boat to sail in a blow. Made for lake Eire. Fine in light air to. Hates to point, but on a reach its like giving a dog a bone, very happy. Built like a tank, and makes a great family boat. Fun to singlehand to. Removed knive blade winches from the mast and replaced them with single speed winches. Reefing is now alot simpler.

1970 Tartan 27 hull #468. Purchased in the fall of 2001 and have only been able to take her out a few times, but she handles well. Keel centerboard sloop, atomic 4 30hp inboard. Overall condition is good, but teak needs to be refinished and standing rigging is tired. Have purchased new allrope staset-X halyards, etc. A-4 is in good shape with no major issues. There is a little bit of 'spring' in the foredeck. I will either inject epoxy or recore this spring. Chainplate's are glassed in so it's hard to inspect. Drilled holes into chainplate supports and water came out! I understand this is common on older T-27's and potential buyers should inspect carefully.

Pros: Classic lines
Cons: Chain plates

Bought hull 236 from a company that does full restorations of the boat. It was beautify. I sailed her for about 7-8 years on Lake Erie and just had a blast. I could balance sail it very easy and just lay on the foredeck and have a beverage and she'd sail herself it seamed for hours. Little bit cramped below but I'm 6.3 so all boats are. On 4th of July 2003 I was out about 8-10 miles from the dock and heard an awful sound the port side stays tore out of the deck and the chain plate failed. turned her around an was able to sail back to dock... Too expensive to fix at the time so I sold her and didn't sail till last year when we bought our next boat a Sabre 28II
