It needs some hull work (one impact ding) and re-bedding of all hardware. Deck feels solid but I am going to buy a moisture reader to make sure what I am getting into as far as core moisture. We are also looking at a bunch of other boats in the same range. Most have been sitting for a while on trailer so i figure they will all need re-bedding of hardware. The C27 just has a whole lot more hardware needing rebedding.
The boat is on a trailer but it is too heavy for my truck. We have no room for it at home, the home is a rental anyways so putting a boat there would not go over very well. I started describing the boat here but figured it would be better to post another thread if I was going to hijack myself, look for it in the boat choosing forum.
I work in transportation and am out of town more often than in town. My work is only 10 minutes from the marina and 25 minutes from home, so I could head there after work each day for a couple of hours of projects and days off. My other option is someone who's boat I race on has a shop in town where he said I could work on the boat, not sure where but I imagine 10 minutes from home. I would like to get the hardware re-bedded and the boat in the water ASAP.
PS one of the other boats available is a Mac 25, we still need to look at do you cruise the Socal coast in yours, been out to the islands?
