1982 Catalina 27 ft. - our new boat!

Hurray! Hubby and I just put a down payment on this boat. The survey will be done late next week. I am so excited about this boat. Previously we had (still have) a Thistle and we wanted something comfortable to take friends out in.

Anyone care to speculate on what problems may be found in the survey? The boat looks to be in good condition and well maintained with quite a few upgrades. It is still in the water right now but will be coming out soon.

key items may be:
1. deck softening/delaminating
2. hull blisters
3. engine issues (if inboard: compression/leaks/etc.)
4. or....hopefully, none of the above!

Yup, but a good surveyor should find any lurking problems. Enjoy the boat!

Like a house inspection, the survey doesn't neccessarily mean don't buy it, just by it cheaper. Which lake will you sail?

Thanks everyone!

Customize

Congatulations!!!!!
This is my first Sailboat and love it. I will never forget the day I bought it.
I like to customize mine, making it different from other Catalina 27's.

Most of us have customized our boats to some degree or another.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
