Re: Vancouver 27 vs Albin Vega 27
For all those that are curious, I went with a Vancouver 27. When all is said and done it seemed like the best choice. The inside is nearly completely bare. There are a couple of benches, a head, some slats on the V-berth futon style to put a matteress on. A sink, chart table and, massive stainless steel compression post (This was the feature that sealed the deal over the Vega, all the Vegas I looked at had noticeable sagging under the mast inside the cabin). Other then that everything inside is bare fiberglass. Outside it has the same rigging as a Nor'sea 27 so the mast is a little taller then on a regular Van 27 and it also means the standing rigging is bulkier 5/16 instead of 3/16. This one is sloop rigged and apparantly the last one put out by Seair, hull built 83, but not commissioned until '98.
Right now she is on the hard and the mast is down so the pictures aren't the greatest but I'll post them when I get the chance.
One other thing the current owner never named her so I get that privilege.

Congrats. Now you get to make it the way you want it. By the way, that rigging should be able to withstand getting rolled or pitchpoled - the rigging was only 9/32 on my Columbia 43.
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.
