Hey Sailnetters, Thanks for all the great advise. And for those who thought some of these guys were being a little rough on me it's okay, I can take it.
Well, I'm not going to give up on sailing but I have given up on the C27. It left my shop on a trailer yesterday bound for Southeast Georgia. The gentleman that took it off my hands has plenty of time, money and know how to put back her in the water by spring.
Truthfully, I am thankful for the opportunity to spend a little time with the boat even though it I never seen it float. I learned a lot about the actual space there is in such a vessel as well as a small look into how sail boats are designed and function. I got my money back plus a couple hundred so I'm not out a thing. I look at it as my first lesson in the world of sailing.
For now I'll save my money continue hanging around sailnet.com. Lots to learn here.
James In Alabama.
