Re: Catalina 27 questions
There are so many C-27s out there you should be easily able to find one with the steering and traveler arrangement you want. I'd recommend tiller and outboard. Tiller because it's more fun and opens up the room in the cockpit. Outboard because the engine access is pretty tough on a C27 and outboards are cheap. OTOH, 'cause it seems folks can't even give away a gas powered boat, one with an A4 inboard will be pretty inexpensive.. (A brand new A4 is only about $6K - likely 2x what the boat is worth)
They're a great get-out-there cheap boat.
(I own a A4 powered C-30, so I'm a bit biased)
