I have a 1975 E-27 which I love to sail (doesn't motor well though because of tiller arrangement.) I sail out of Milwaukee. The boat sails well - I cruise so speed is not an issue especially in low winds but it does move. She really performs in higher winds (15ish) and is stiff enough to be comfortable. It's faster than my Columbia 28 so I'm happy. Next summer we'll be cruising more across the lake and can report more. Any specific questions?
