Which 27 footer to buy.

Hey everyone,

I'm looking to buy my first boat and I was wondering if I could get a few tips as which would be best. I would like to get something in the 27 foot range with an inboard motor and from the late 70's to early 80's. I want to be able to use it for day sailing and maybe some longer trips on the Florida East coast. My price range right now is about 5k.

I've been looking at the Catalina 27. I know that this was a popular boat in its day and that the company is still in business. The fact that there are so many on the market and that they are good standard boats is what makes me thing that it is a good one for me.

My question is: Is this a good boat to fit my needs? And are there some other good 27 footers that would fit the above criteria?
