There's a few W-27s in the FL area. I have one here on the Chesie as do quite a few others. Try the Watkins Owner's Group. A web page devoted to data on the W's: Watkins* Owners Home Page
Reference data only.. no chat; but.....
There's also a mail group at; watkins : watkinssailboats
Lots good ?? asked and answered.
I find the W-27 well suited to my needs. Small enuff to single-hand, big enufff to live-aboard...but my needs are few. While some may diss the Co. I feel the construction (for the time) to be stout. One of the Senior Watkins brothers wanted a solid ICW cruiser and called upon Walt Scott to design one to his specs...all oversized! Standing head room all thru the cabin..as long as yer not over 6'1" or so
GL with it!
