I am late to this discussion, I am sorry. But I own and sail a Catalina 27 Standard rig with a fin keel (4'). Mine is an outboard model with a custom bracket for my 9.9 Honda 4 stroke. I sail on the Chesapeake Bay, known for its light air and shallow water. But the standard rig and fin keel does just fine. I like my boat and except for those days with no wind, she gets along just fine. I do a fair amount of single/short handed sailing and I can manage her just fine. If I were in th market for another 27' boat, I would get the same boat again.
Joe McCary,
Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.
