With due respect to Jeff, you have to realize that he's never given an IOR era boat a fair review. Bear in mind that sail technology in the 1970's was primitive by today's standards, and yes, sailmakers sold rags for every possible wind contingency. It was pretty silly. For your purposes, if you plan to race, you need exactly no more or no less sails than any typical PHRF race boat and less if you're going the non-flying sails route. Talk to local racers and sailmakers and see what they carry or what's commonly used in your area. There are too many old IOR boats sailed (and well sailed at that!) in this area that prove Jeff wrong on a weekly basis. Priorities are a good main, a good all purpose #1 (150-155'ish... 180's are long dead), a #3 (105'ish), and a .6 or .75 oz 'runner' spinnaker. That's 4 sails. Chances are you already have them. Keep the bottom clean, and don't let Jeff's old posts scare you away.

can't say how much i appreciate your feedback, haven't been able to find a lot of info online about the M27's, seems most sites and groups are more geared to the OI morgans...Got the Jib halyard spliced onto a new cable this afternoon, so we ran up all 6 headsails in the inventory and found them all to be in primo condition, was quite a relief...lol crewing in races tomorrow, hope maybe we get the main halyard and cable replaced tomorrow and hoist the main for an inspection. According to the survey, its supposed to be in goo/xlnt condition, jsut hoping I agree with that assessment....have a good weekend, fair winds to you.

Hey Dude,
Internet speak: IIRC= "if I recall correctly"
If you are standing behind the boat looking at the L side of the stern the surface I speak of is on the inside of the stern just below the chainplate (thing the mast cable is hooked to) Get in the boat and open the lazarette (that cockpit seat that opens on the left side) and stick your face down in there and look to the rear; You should see the numbers cast into the hull though i do not know which serial numbers correlate to which model years. If you like you can get me at mrtrimmier at yeahhoo dot cohm.... I have some ads and factory papers a I can send you! :0)

@Morgan27, thx buddy, the 'iirc' is a new one on me...lol checked her out after race committee duty yesterday, found no stamps/engravings/markings of any kind inside the lazarette on the stern. Someone had mentioned to me that perhaps she had jsut been titled with an incorrect yr of manufacture, think that's possible true?
