Be wary of the soft spot on the deck-- and make sure the surveyor was clear about what would need to be done to deal with it.

I still part-own a Cal 20, and I owed a C&C 27, and I've been on C&C 24s. I would go for the C&C 24 if possible, but the C&C 24 and 27s had balsa cores in their rounded decks, and water could spread inside and affect them pretty seriously.

There's a dedicated site for C&C 27s that had a picture gallery and article about redoing wet decks-- it was an eye opener. I'm glad our C&C 27 was fine in that regard.

Good luck-- I hope it works out!

note: here's a link to the deck repair article:
