How old? What hull #?
If your T27 still has the A4 motor in it you will also want to visit the Moyer Marine forums: Moyer Marine Atomic 4 Community - Powered by vBulletin
There is also an Atomic 4 section here at sailnet.
Perhaps you have also found the T27Owners group over at Yahoo?
Check the chain plates on the knee walls inside the cabin. You can drill a small exploratory hole to check for moisture weep from these wood cored knee walls. It may also be worth checking the center board wire pennant.
Good old boats, hard to kill.
