Cat 27

I bought a catalina 27 that was 5 years on the hard. Mechanicals were good, a bad water pump and jammed macerater pump, a couple of weeks of elbow grease and it was ready to sail. PO did store the sails in a dry varmit free environment and the yard owner had properly winterized the universal 18 and fuel system. Lines are a little dirty but solid. Given the cost of your acquisition if the deck and hull are sound you should get to work or sell. Stop complaining as a lot of guys would love to be in your shoes.
