The big costs are likely going to be (a) engine replacement, (b) complete re-rigging and (c) a new suit of sails.
Keep in mind the Van 27 is a BIG 27' - about 10K Lbs, so it's likely to cost more like a typical 32' - 34' as far as gear goes.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
