Re: Pearson Renegade 27 - any info?

Having had Renegade #105 for almost 10 years, I can say that they are great sailing boats. Perfect for starting out, or for a couple. Not as much room as more current designs. Very solid and durable hull. Modern underbody. I had like 40-50 very small blisters when I first took it out of the water, which I removed and applied barrier coat. No problems since. Teak toerail is a pain to keep up. I have had it in very rough seas and it always came through fine. Most Renegades will need rudder bushings replaced, new rigging, rebedding of deck hardware, etc. Gelcoat on cabin top is thin and prone to spiderwebbing. All the pros and cons of an older boat.
