CS27 Specific issue to look for?


I've been lurking from some time now, and finally have cause to post. I'm going to look at a 1977 CS27 tomorrow which at first glance seems to be in appealing condition. Could be the start of a 20 year dream finally coming true.

I'm a fairly new sailor, just finishing lessons which are going great. My intent is day sailing, hoping to build up to overnights and weekend trips with my family (three of us in all) and want something stable and comfortable that I can build skills on without dropping a fortune. I'm a DIY kind of guy, so not at all afraid of projects. Primary stomping ground will be Lake Ontario.

I have done a lot of research on surveying, and have a pretty good feel for things I need to look at in general. Just wanted to check with a group of folks familiar with CS to see if there's anything specific to the CS27, or CS in general that I ought to pay particular attention to.

I did see the CSOA yahoo group - planning to go there depending on how my visit goes.

Thanks in advance,
