k1vsk will become famous soon enough
Had one as our first boat. Great boat to learn on, very forgiving, much better constructed than comparibly priced and sized production boats. About the only thing I found frustrating was that it seemed as slow as dry wall but am sure that's a function of it's wetted surface with it's cutaway semi-full keel. On the plus side, no keel bolts and keel seperation to worry about, relatively large cockit for a 27 and tracks like it's on rails. No history of hull blisters but deck leaks from poorly placed chainplates are frequently a source of water penetration in the deck but that is easily checked and repaired if needed.
