I've met Sailorgirl several times here in Toronto. They live here during the summer where she makes some nice jewelry which she sells at various craft fairs.
Regarding the mast, the blog is a bit out of date but they lost the mast during a hurricane a couple of years ago. The adjoining boat fell on to theirs and knocked their mast down. They cobled together a replacement I believe from another similar size boat that was a write-off. They also upgraded their engine the same way. The standard 8 hp. Yanmar is generally considered somewhat underpowered for serious cruising work in the CS 27.
BTW - they are very pleased with the boat which hasn't given them any trouble as far as I know.
