Smoke, now that you've had the boat a few months, if you get a chance I'd be interested to see your opinions posted under the Tanzer 27 review page.

^I'll be sure to write up a summary of what I think, most of the other reviews are pretty old. If there is anything in particular you'd like to know, send me a PM or post it. The boat is solid and I've been very happy with it.

Re: tanzer 27

To all you current and former Tanzer 27 sailors out there - I'm looking at a 1982 model with keel/centerboard, 15 hp outboard, and tiller steering. Understand it is generally thought to be a well built and comfortable boat. A few questions:

1- how does it sail to windward, and downwind?
2 - what is the headroom and ventilation in the cabin/salon?
3 - what is the PHRF?
4 - what are the weaknesses of the boat - any centerboard issues?
5 - what are your sailing experiences with the boat, and are/were you happy with it?

My main use will be day-sailing and light coastal cruising on the west coast of Florida. In time, will probably cruise further to the Keys and beyond, but this boat needn't necessarily be the one to do that (though it would be nice).

Obviously condition is key for any 30 year old boat, but before possibly traveling some distance to check it out, I'd like to get a better idea if one in good shape would be worth the trip. Thanks!

Re: tanzer 27

Hi - found one my old best friend bought a week ago. Had just very little hurricane sandy damage, nothing major. Biggest issue is replacing the bow pulpit and a few stanchions. Does anyone know how to access the pulpit base/stanchion base bolts from underneath? They're through bolted but my friend hasn't found the nuts inside (excluding him, he's a psychologist, so...). I'm going over to help him on Monday and it would really help if he and I could remove the old ones, replace with new bases and stanchions. -I'm a very experienced sailor, owned several boats, think the Tanzer is one great boat. Thanks for whatever words of wisdom you (anyone) shares.
