Yep.... but I'm not planning to trailer unless it's a one-time delivery for a boat that's not already on the body of water I'm planning to rent a slip at. However.... the ability to put on a trailer and tow a very short distance for lower cost winter storage could be attractive but I would need to crunch the numbers. My current vehicle is rated to tow 7000 lbs max so I would definitely not use it to tow this boat unless it was only a mile or two. I do appreciate the insight though, thanks!

Re: Looking for a Catalina 270 detailed review

A little late to the party (as usual). We have a 270, 1993, and trailer it. Lots of question on the net about doing this type of thing, and lots of replies from folk.
Lots of Google engineers out there too.
The 270, on a triple axle trailer with at least a 3/4ton diesel is just fine. Yes it's a wide load. Yes we have a mast raising system, and a removable breakaway battery box, and tongue extender, and it all works like a charm.
The first versions did not.

Re: Looking for a Catalina 270 detailed review

mmazour,

How did you make out with the 270? We have a Yahoo group Catalina270 and I'm sure you can find somebody there who owns one. Those of us who own 270s are relatively few and far between, and the reason these guys with the 27s and 28s know about us is that they only ever see the transom.

You should be able to find a 1995 or so model in the upper 20s, and probably add 5-8 with a decent trailer. My trailer was adequate, but that's all, and I've pretty much rebuilt it.

Cheers
Gary

I suspected that it was commentary against old data. A year is a long time to be looking for a pocket cruiser.
