If you can get the name of the CS 27, then go to the CS Owners Association - CSOA Group at Yahoo - and look around to see if you can gather any of its history. You will also find a lot of general information about them there. It is definitely at the upper end of the going prices for the boat. But they are good boats.
Based on the information in the C&C 27 write-up - I think that it is overpriced at listing. Seems that the owner is wanting to recoup the expenditure he made on the new engine. Not a lot of other upgrades mentioned. A very common issue with these boats is delamination of the decks. Find out if and when it was recored, and if so, what core material was used.
I am still going to suggest that you contact a few Ontario boat owners and take a drive up here to look at what's available, for what price. The fall is a good time to do this, as boats will start getting cheaper in a couple of weeks from now.
