How about the Summit 35 in the classifieds? Just a little thread drift......

In Topic: J 27 - ancient history

09 August 2016 - 09:34 PM

I recently came across a 1984 document with all the original equipment and offerings for the J 27. Interesting as owner of one of the pre-production boats.


One of the options was a 9 HP diesel engine. I've only seen a J27 with outboard motor. Does anyone know if any boats were ordered or produced with this? As I age my desire and ability to move an OB on and off to race is dwindling!


I did try and get on the J27 Yahoo group, where I was a member but the site is moving so slowly it's agony.

When you say pre-production, what hull number would that be?  I know we used to have a very early boat, White Rabbit that  was RCR Yachts demo and then raced locally for a number of years.  It sat on the hard for a long while and then was sold on, I have no recollection of what the hull number was....

As former owner of Hull 24, I have a affection for htese boats.  I know of only one boat ever built with an inboard diesel and it was and I beleive still is in Detroit.

Cool, thanks for sharing!

I was alway liked the Wavelength 24.  Not so production, the Capo 26. Oh and then the Capo 30 is pure brilliance.

Love that boat in the Olson 911s version. All though the best two MORC boats I ever sailed were the N/M 26 "Easy Go" and the N/M 30 "Invincible". However the Andrews 26 may have been the best light air boat ever.
I ran into Easy Go two years ago in Cheboygan MI. Looks like the keel has been changed??attachicon.gifEasy Go.jpg

I was considering buying this boat back in summer of 2013 when it was for sale out of Ohio. It would have been a natural progression for me as my dad had sold the Andrews 30 the fall prior. I decided to buy a J/27 instead and don't have any regrets. Easy Go was a cool little boat though and I'm sure would have been fun.

It's not just an East Coast thing.....
would be fun to tool around on though!

Is that the old Daedalus?

That is much larger than Steve Haarstick's 1/2 tonner
