How many Cat 27's have you sailed Brent?
How many Cat 27's have you owned Brent?
How many fiberglass boats have you built?
Sailed several . The 23 is wel balanced, the 27 very hard to control downwind in a rough sea. Wouldnt dream of owning something so flimsy.
Gave up fibreglas boat building in th elate 70s. To toxic to deal with and nowhere near as strong and worry free as steel. Also getting expensive.
