Nice! I've always wondered how my C27 would fare on it's side. The companionway looks pretty damn wide at the top. And I'm in the process of looking for a spi for next season, so it could very well happen.
Anyone had their C27 laydown? Did it stay "dry"?
Smacky, I used to have a Catalina 25, and laid it down, numerous times (to see what would happen), until the rudder lifted out of the water. The water didn't come anywhere near the companionway. If I laid it down quickly, a couple of gallons of water poured over the gunwale, just forward of the winch, and, if I laid it down more gradually, no water came over the gunwale. This was on a small, inland lake, which was less choppy than a bigger body of water. The design of the C25 is somewhat similar to the C27.
