Don't forget the vikings

I don't see Ericson Yachts mentioned here. They made 27s, 28s, and 30s and a lot of them are out on the Great Lakes. They are solid and great sailing boats.

I think you will find that in the Hunter Sailboat series, my 1978 Hunter 27 (Cherubini design) has a tiller and an 8 hp Yanmar diesel.

If I were to do it over again, I'd seriously consider a 27 foot Catalina, 197?? vintage with an Atomic 4 (Gasoline & 25 HP). Great for upwind motoring!

I'm not sure that's a universal truth, Mike... probably more true for boats focusing on cruising perhaps. Even then I've never seen a Westsail 32 with a wheel....

There are plenty of tiller steered boats around even up into the 40' range, esp among racers ( though I'm not sure I'd be too interested in wrestling the tiller on a 40' IOR leadmine!)

Bob-

I'd highly recommend you not use your e-mail address as a handle on an internet forum, since it will generally end up in you getting a fair bit of spam. I'd also recommend you read the post in my signature... to help you get the most out of sailnet.

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.

Is there a technique, other than deleting, to change the Username field without messing up the rest of the note (or continuity) ?

My M275 seems to be working well for us on Georgian Bay. The open layout is similar to a pearson and feels roomy for 27.5 feet with no forward bulkhead. The rear cabin and head layout with an open v berth works for our family of five! Mirage boats are fairly common in Ontario. The M29 gives you a forward and aft cabin. My M275 has a tiller, draws 4', has a universal m-12 diesel inboard and displaces 6800 lbs.

Cal 2-27 or a little smaller 2-25.
Both are great little weekend warriors.
Tiller steered, diesels were the most common engine, and very robustly built. They would make an excellent Great Lakes Pocket Cruiser.

Aloha yachts

We have an Aloha 27 on Canada's east coast. They're Bob Perry designed and extremely well-built with virtually no delamination or osmosis issues. Thre are a few that have wheel steering, but the vast majority have tillers.

Check out the Aloha Owners website at alohaowners dot com
(written in a way to cut down on spam...)

A couple of posters mentioned CS 27's...

"The bad news with many CS 27s is that their bottoms are prone to osmotic blistering (pox). The good news is that many CS 27s on the used market have been treated for osmosis by having their bottoms stripped and coated with an epoxy barrier."
