Save that Cal 27!!!!
We recently purchased our first boat. A 1972 CAL27 sloop from another member at the sailing club. The boat, "Slack Mole", has sat unused for the past 5 years. Needless to say she needed lots of TLC, and some new parts. We later learned of her reputation as a VERY fast racer, as all the Cal 27''s of the time.
My point is this. Last night we walked the docks of our sailing club, and noticed a lot of "Pop top" Cals just sitting, rotting away from a lack of use. Many haven''t been boarded in years. These are great boats that are fast, roomy, and great in big water as well as inland waterways. I encourage anyone looking for a potentially low cost boat, to walk the local marinas, and look for one of these boats. They are cheap to repair, and great all around boats.
