Re: Yay! A c27 subforum!

I hope to get C27 specific ideas and info from this. I have a 1977 C27 that needed tons of work and still needs some but I have been sailing her and love the way it performs.
This year I removed deck hardware and re-sealed it (with help from Main Sail,s posts and web site).

Have also added a heater and refrigation. That makes it nice, especially as we are getting a cold and wet start to the season here in eastern Canada.

Looking forward to hearing about other owners experiences.

Re: Yay! A c27 subforum!

Catalina is coming out with a new sport boat--Catalina 275. Anyone know anything about it?

There isn't a device on this world that can measure the indifference I have for that statement.

Re: Yay! A c27 subforum!

RUDDER PROBLEM!
Has anyone (else) encountered rudder problems when under power.
My C27 has the old Atomic 4 inboard engine. When under power if I let go of the tiller for just a second the boat goes into a hard over turn that is difficult to recover from. (Sometimes I think the tiller will break before I can get it straightened out again.)

This is beyond annoying to the point of being dangerous. It turns so hard and fast that gear or people could be thrown off.

Any help will be appreciated.

Delighted to see this up. Have completed several projects that I can post here and am replacing a soft core as we speak. Would love to hear from anyone who has done this!

Re: Yay! A c27 subforum!

I also have a C27! Mine has an outboard that i try to never use. However; last year when i worked at one of the local marinas we had a C27 with a diesel that had this problem after we put a bigger prop on it perhaps a smaller prop would solve your problem. This boat however is the only C27 in the world that drafts 5 feet and has a different rudder (similar to a hunter 28.5 rudder). It was built for someone that worked on Catalina's design team. The new larger prop caused the issue tho.

It has been at a couple of the shows and it's on Yachtworld in around the 70k range. It'll probably run circles around the 270, but we'll be much, much more comfortable when it rains. It all depends what you want. Gerry has probably come to understand that there's a few options in the 27 foot range for cruisers, and there's only so much you can do.
