You guys are awesome. Thank you all for the advice! I see there's more to check than I initially thought and I'll be sure to keep you up to date on my findings!
There are currently several cs and cc 27 on Kijiji. Unfortunately they're all at least 16hr drive away.. time will tell.

Thanks again.

Re: Debating CS27 or C&C 27

Im partial of course, I have a CS30. Well built etc. Gelcoat is pristine for a 32 YO Boat, not as wide as a 30MkIII C&C so good and bad I guess. For speed as you would guess pretty equal, though I'm winning a lot more long and short races against my favorite MkIII. You will easily find more, and more models to choose from in C&C, just so many more made. There are two 30s and a 40 in the lower Chesapeake, more up the bay I suppose where C&C is, aside from Catalinas, the most popular around.

There are 10 cs 27's at my marina in Toronto. In various states of "oh dear" to "wow". Not sure if any of them for sale - well probably the oh "oh dear" ones. You can come for a sail on mine if you ever make the trip. You can read about the 3 year refit done by the previous owner here if you like: CS 27 - CS27 ~ Ravat

I wonder if you're referring to the 1977 CS 27 "RELIANT II" being the ooh dear condition. I hate how photos rarely show the actual condition of the boat.. from what I know the step of the mast is gone and furling foil is bent. Thus asking $4500

I see the cc and cs bouncing around the 5k all the way to high teens O.o

It looks okay in the pics, but who knows right? Don't expect that blue hull to look as nice as it is in the picture, that's for sure. They rarely do. Not sure why it needs a mast shoe, but one can found quite easily around here. The furler, well who knows, maybe it's an easy fix. You really don't want a hank on sail. I think the boat is worth a look.

They are easy boats to fix as long as there are no structural issues with lots of parts out there. There are 3 derelict ones in my yard.

Re: Debating CS27 or C&C 27

i have to wonder now, how many were built a year in the heyday, my 30 is 1987 and they weren't made much after that. C&C of course kept going. Compared to C&C of course. Anyone know?

Re: Debating CS27 or C&C 27

Lake of the Woods, lots of islands, lots of rocks. I'd plan for hitting the odd rock and would choose accordingly. My boat has an encapsulated lead keel that's seen some action and lived to tell the tale. Doesn't sink and you learn the fibreglass trade as a bonus. Diesels are nice but you aren't crossing oceans so an A4 or good 4 stroke would be fine. Get a tiller, easier to maneuver in and out of tight spots and feel the rudder. Shallower drafts are practical for gunkholing those little bays and avoiding rocks. A good Bruce anchor, 25 foot chain and Danforth for backup. Trailers are nice to have as well. CS tend to be a better build but bit more money. Whatever you get will be the best 5K or so you ever spent. Cheers

Interesting to know. Thought there were only around 500-ish.
