Re: Any Watkins 27 Owners in Florida?

Nice!

I looked at a Watkins 34(?), and really liked the layout, but not the (lack of) storage. The one that I looked at also had *completely* rotted out core in the coachroof.

What is the chain drive for? The view of the electrical system scares me a little, but you can clean that up.

Wow! Din't realize Miss Marisol had the upper bulkheads surrounding the head/shower removed. Sure seems ta open up the cabin and particularly the Vee berth more. I'll try to visualize well before I attempt anything similar.

My first impression was not positive. Then, as I thought about how open it made the cabin feel I realized I loved the shortened bulkheads. I will however, change out the penguin shower curtains.

I haven't been aboard Miss Marisol since last week when we made the deal. This weekend I was in ASA 101, which was fantastic. I really really want to drive the 4 hours and start the inventory and go sailing.

I'll be sure to take more photos and video as I get more time aboard.

Re: Any Watkins 27 Owners in Florida?

I found my notes...

The Watkins that I looked at was a Seawolf 33 by Watkins.
Base price in 1987 was $65K

It looked good in the pictures...
