Narrow, almost non existent side decks. It is just plainly dangerous to walk on a boat.
Twisty. In any sea the boat is hard to steer, it is tiring thing to do. It is just bobbing around, not precise. This actually surprised me since so much said about good sailing ability of C27. I understand it is small boat, however handling was not precise and direct as I'd expect from sort of "performance " boat. It wasn't "running on rails" either. Loose, in one word.
With wind building up to around 22-25 knots the boat become less and less
manageable. I had a feeling that the boat has a limit, and limit was near.
Companionway is an obvious thing.
On another side I was surprised by sturdiness of the built. Boat looked and felt solid (it was early 70-s boat)
I liked interior too. Layout, I mean, it is quite functional for two.
