Are you sure you don't mean the Vancouver 27? So far as I know there never was a Vancouver 25. I believe that there was the 27, which was a kit boat with the hull/decks made by several different groups over time, 32 which was built in England
, 36, also built in England
. Then there were several others of later vintage.
The 27s varied. I was in love with them myself at one time but looked at one that was for sale
and the mast
was just about ready to punch a hole though the deck
. The builder
had just bridged the overhead between sections of the bulkhead with a nice piece of teak
. This was right under the mast
. My first two clues were water
pooling around the base of the mast and loose shrouds. Third clue was the nice piece of teak
lying on a counter.
Any that have lasted this long are probably pretty good boats or need complete gutting. I think the hull/decks were well made but they may vary with different vintages.
