This is over a year old but thought I'd try to bring it back to life. We have a 1979 27 poptop as well, hull #7!! Currently finishing up a refit. Rewiring today actually. Hope to have it on the lake in a month or two. Would love to keep this thread alive!

well met! i rarely run into anyone that has a cal27, on line, although there is an older lady that has one berthed in the marina where i berth my boat, but it's a 2-27. it's a nice boat. she lives aboard. that's my goal, as well. although she no longer sails hers; which is definitely not my goal. i plan on casting off every chance i get.
looks like you are farther along in your refit than i. due to money concerns, mine has been dragging. however, things are starting to really come together and i can see the possibility of light at the end of the tunnel, now.
hold on a minute. i was just reviewing my post. you say yours is a pop top, too (hull 7). the date can't be right. i have hull number 9.
no way yours is a 1979. could it be a 1970 with a typo? nine is pretty close to zero...
if yours was a 79, we'd actually have completely different boats. not sure how much you know about the 3 cal 27s but. mine (yours too?) is the first version. it came in pop top (like mine) and in a flush deck version, with a doghouse, called the T2. in 73 they came out with the 2-27, which is the second model. it was the biggest of the three 27s. that's the one you usually see. everyone has one of those. if your boat is a 1979, that's what you have (but, they certainly didn't come in a pop top version). almost no one has the first version, like me, and it's hard to find out anything about them. then, in 83, they came out with the last version. all three are completely different hulls/designs.
if you have a pop top, that's really awesome. it's a bit lonely owning one. everyone that says," yeah, i have a cal 27", has a totally different boat. lol. it's like being the black sheep in the family. do you have a pics?
