The catalina 27 is very easy to sail. That being said, I dunno nuffin' 'bout birfin' no outboard on that boat.

I know I can make 5.5, 5.7 kts with the A-4 inboard.
Take the advise of the sailors here, they're good people.
(well, most of them)
Also, take a weekend or two, talk to some people at the marina, ask for them to go out for a day sail with you. It'll make you much more comfortable with your boat. You can do it. Raise the sails, know when to reef, and go slow, you'll be fine.
