Re: looking for past or present owners of 1970 through 73 cal 27s
ok. useful day, today. I got the boat cleaned up and organized quite a bit, with my GF's help. I got the life lines on the port side in good repair. I got the ones on the starboard right, except for one post that needs replaced. the boat is swept free of all the trash and stuff. I scraped some paint and took a lot of measurements of things that I need to make.
the V berth door is only missing on the starboard side. I have the port side to use as a guide in making the other one.
the boat has a manual bilge pump in that storage compartment in the starboard bench, in the cockpit. I have no idea if it works because there is no water to pump out. I am thinking about taking it apart and making sure the insides are good.
the propeller shaft was used to plug the hole. it does not turn. in fact, it's got a rubber sleeve over where it passes through the hull and that is hose clamped in.
so, either i will glass it shut ( i don't like that plug. looks sketchy to me ) or i will do an inboard but i will have to get a new shaft and, probably, a propeller, too.
i have a few questions for you. i will have some pics after i get done eating dinner.
