have experience on the 270 and the hunter27, both very nice sailing boats for your purposes. The QC on the hunter isn't all that bad. I just get a hinky feeling about that rigging, Yea, I know its not logical, but its how I feel
Now, this is my personal opinion, that and 50 cents gets you a newspaper....
If it were me, and if it were my cash, (and its not), I'd save a pile of that by looking for a used catalina 27. they're rock solid, are as nicely oufitted as either of the above (ok, no sugar scoop,deal with it) and you can pocket a serious amount of cash you were going to spend and have just as much fun.
We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through
Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
