Pros:
Cons:

I had the boat for six years and its a great boat overall. It handles very well in different conditions its pretty fast and confortable for a 27'. Some issues are: Corroded Keel bolts. Crack in the keel to hull join. In the outboard model like mine the hole is too small for a new OB to be able to tilt completely. The construction is far from the finest but I am not planning to cross the Atlantic.

Pros: Simple to work on.
Cons: Original trim and windows

Trying to get Hull #600 back to stock is kind of tough. I'm the third owner and some of the teak trim and galley shelving was removed. Great day sailer and pretty easy to handle.

Pros: price and ease of handling
Cons: it's not a pacific seacraft

My first boat. Very forgiving- sailed to the channel islands from Santa Barbara in about 15-18 knots of wind with full main and partially furled headsail. Never had so much fun in my life. Found that a 16# bruce would hold well in 20 knots overnight.
My boat had been repowered with a 28 horse Yanmar- and it really helps in moving around the marina.
small V berth, built my own double bunk in the main cabin ( 1983 was the year before Catalina did it)
Great boat, I'm happy
