Re: Any Watkins 27 Owners in Florida?
My previous boat was a 1981 W27. It was a great boat for what we used her for in the Tampa Bay area. My wife and I would go on extended weekends and longer without hesitation. While she could use more storage room, the boat is stable, forgiving and overbuilt....coupled with less than 4' draft you could not go wrong with this choice for this area. Agree'd, she was not the fastest boat in the fleet, but as soon as we settled into the cockpit, we were already where we wanted to be!
We sold her for a bigger boat and became fast friends with her new owners. They are having a great time and have actually completed many of the projects I only had plans for. Its good we can still visit her....she was a great boat!
