What is a good used 27ft boat for lake Michigan?

I am looking for a mid 1980's 27 boat I have looked at the Catalina and the Pearson. I am looking for feedback and other thoughts.

There is a pretty decked out Pacific Seacraft Orion(27) in Bayfield Wi. for sale, check Yachtworld. Highly recommended boat. I am partial to that boat, and that opinion is highly biased(I own one). I guess it depends on what you want out of the boat. Cruising, racing, all around boat, don't really know yet boat?

how about sea sprite, albin nimbus, cape dory(28), com-pac, nor-sea 27 . it depends on what you plan to do, what you can afford, where you are going to keep it etc. does it need to be 27?!

Where are you located? I have a catalina 27 with Heavy Duty Trailer I will part with at a good price. The boat was previously from Michigan and is now in Duluth, MN

Can't give you comparisons because my Pearson 27 is almost my first sailboat, but I think you'd be pretty happy with a Pearson. Solid, well-built boat, and very roomy for a 27-footer.

I'll second that... and we have had a couple other boats. We love our Pearson 27 so far. Sails great, comfortable and affordable for us.
