Re: Watkins 27

I have a 1978 watkins 27 and it is a very good boat but make sure you check the bottom. my boat has a encapsulated keel and it began taking on water through the keel. I hauled the boat out and the fiberglass had delaminated from the keel and rotted. so with that said i had to peel all the glass off and put on new then i filled it from the top with epoxy resin. they are great boats just be sure to check the bottom.
