Re: 1992 27 OFFSHORE Power and Performance

I wonder how my 1987 27 FC with inboards will handle the 3 -4 ' waves. Fish Lake Ontario and the waves are usually closely spaced, more in the 3-4 second gap. Picked her up in the fall and never sea trialed her for various reasons. I would assume the hull designs are the same as this model was made ...

Re: Open or Closed Cell Foam in c.1979 Boat

Having Googled open cell foam vs closed cell foam, I see there is a difference ,mostly in density and R value. So there is a difference in the two.

The speakers, over time they have a tendency to dry out and fall apart.

Re: Speaker Grill Removal

If I were trying to see if [the cause of the loudspeakers not working is from] the [audio amplifier] or the loudspeakers, I would switch the wires where the wires are spliced. The splice is usually right behind the [amplifier]. Odds are they are shot. I paid about $80 for all four of my JBL 6-inch r...

You are going to replace the the speaker anyway and the new one will come with a new grill. Most replacement speakers will fit in the existing hole with no b...

Re: 1998 27 Full Cabin Inboard Fuel Consumption

Since I don't know what [boat speed] the OP is cruising at or his actual load, all I can do is base my information on the fuel flow meter in my boat and the hundreds of articles I have read on fuel consumption of boats with approximately the same length, beam, weight, deadrise, and horsepower config...

Trailer for 27 Full Cabin

After taking my first ride about 54 years ago on a 13-footer, I just picked up my first Boston Whaler boat: a 1987 27 Full Cabin with inboard engine. I was told the factory installed a keel because of the tower that was going to be installed. The keel is about 8-inches in depth and stops about 6-fee...
