|eMKay||Yeah, those engines have been installed in these boats. Mine is a 1980 as well, sail number 716. Guess they made a lot of 27's that year|

My Hull # is 54572M80A-27. I assume the year to be 1980 and I have an original sail with the 572 number on it.
Do you think either the 1GM or the 2GM will fit?

|eMKay||Only way to get another Renault transmission is to buy a used one, or repower. The later boats used a Yanmar 1GM, or find a 2GM. That's my plan for next year, find a used yanmar.|

|teacherspet||I also have a Renault RC-8D engine. The Transmission is shot. Any suggestions on parts or potential replacements? My mechanic says that the transmission is not interchangeable with other mfgs.|

Not all 1976-84 27's were tall rig, the rig was changed sometime between 1978 and 1979, If you have one of these two years you should either call Hunter and ask (1-800-771-5556) or measure them. The specs for 1976-78 are:
I - 34.50ft
J - 11.25ft
P - 29.75ft
E - 10.00ft
I - 37.67ft
J - 11.25ft
P - 32.30ft
E - 9.92ft

we really need the year, hunter has like 5 or 6 hunter 27's
if its an early boat, years 76 to 83, it is a tall rig, they all where. i dont know much about any of the other years.
as for sails, you really should have it measured. most lofts will do this pretty cheap, maybe free to give you a quote for sails.
now if it is a 76 to 83 boat, you really should convert it to an adjustable topping lift. its not hard and can be done for around 40 bucks. also looking into vangs, they can help when on a run

You can find the original brochure, design specs and other data, depending upon what year yours is, on the Hunterowner site:

Need Specs on my Hunter 27
I have a Hunter 27 and I have identified my hull number. Does anyone know where I can go to find specs for it using the hull number? I'm trying to replace some sails and thought it might be helpful to start with the original specs/measurements.
