This deal sound good? (Edited, more pics, page 2)

Nice boat, of the 9 1977 Cat 27's on Yachtworld I think that one looks to be about the best deal. It's certainly below the mean on price

Do you sail on Ontario or Erie? My in-laws live in Buffalo; and we've been thinking about keeping a boat on Ontario, Olcott harbor maybe.

I sail on Erie, keep my boat at the small boat harbor. Someday I would like to move up near Wilson or Olcott, but that's a long drive to work.

I'm really looking for a newer boat, but this one is local, has a lot of new stuff, and looks to be well maintained.

Have you looked at it in person? If so, how does it compare in real life to the Y/W photos?

I wasn't even aware it was on YW yet. I'm going to look at it Saturday, I could go now but it's too cold, I'm only 4 miles away.

D$@# right it's cold, this is freaking ridiculous for coming on the second week of February.

1977 Catalina 27 Sail Boat For Sale -

It will NOT be trailerable as I am recalling you asking about in another thread, but, this one is a good deal, even if the boat looks half as good as the pics show! "IF" you can move up to a non trailer boat, and you can sail this one on the lake you normally sail on etc, it looks like one you should look at sooner than later!

By the way, what is so cold about 40F and overcast?!?!?!?! oh, you're not in Seattle you say!............

Good luck

I have crossed the "trailerable" criteria off my list. There are trailers out there for it, but at the most it would be trailered to and from the marina in spring and fall. More likely it would never be trailered unless we move.

I have a much better picture of that boat, I took it sometime over the summer...
