This comes from a Lazy, Broke, AND crippled former Cat27 owner.
(oh yeah, get a survey first)
Oh man - that's funny. I had no idea you were a "C27 Man" like myself. Yeah I noticed - and went through just about everything you mentioned with mine. But it had just been neglected for couple years - not 8. Regardless Salt - you can bring her back unless she's totally busted. And if you do, you'll love her even more.

Bottom line - get her in the water as quickly as you can and take her out - even if you only have a towel as a mainsail. That's the only way you'll stick with it. I remember this one guy that never got the stairs off his beautiful boat...

Anyway - as Giu said, if you don't have the fire in your gut, chuck it and go play dominoes.

PS - CP can also give you some great advice on nubbin waxing and the Purina lines of various chows.
