I'm the new owner of a 1981 T-27 with a frozen Zephyr sail drive, bought at auction from the Cheasapeake Bay Maritime Museum. The transom mounted rudder makes mounting an outboard very difficult. Is there any hope for this boat? Any suggestions?

Well...a new saildrive will cost 4-6K and figure double that for installation and modifications...figure 12K. About what a similar boat would sell for with a working engine in decent overall condition. There are very few bargains at auction and assuming there are other things wrong with the boat...it is not worth the investment unless you can personally do the work...in which case you could turn it into a good deal.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!
