Re: I Think I Found The Right Boat

I would get a list from Cat 27 owners of common issues with the boat that should be inspected. Check out the Catalina owners groups and you should be able to get the show stoppers and how to recognize them. Then armed with info and appropriate tools, get the boat pulled and go for it. The $500 to see the bottom is worth it and just part of buying a keel boat. I bet all is great especially with a freshwater boat but take a look.

I understand the survey suggestion, but when you get below 10K and on a <30 boat I think the equation gets harder. BUT, know how to make sure the vessel is at least sound (rigging, motor, keel etc) and then...

GO SAIL IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT!
