Nice boat, I delivered a Starwind 27 a long time ago. It was a terrible trip !
Quick story - my wife and I were living aboard
27, I was working for a yacht broker
. He would offer us easy deliveries now and then. We were bringing the Starwind from Fernandina back to Jacksonville
. It was SUPPOSED to have had the bottom cleaned. That didn't happen. But we went for it anyway, we were young. Came around a turn on the ICW
and had the wind
against us, basically not making progress. This was in January and I really didn't want to but we anchored and I stripped to my skivvies and by hanging on the ladder on the stern I was able to reach under to the prop with my knife and scrape off most of the barnacles
. It was enough to do the trick and we finished the delivery
. That water
was Freezing !!!
As I recall
we got $100. Lol. The things you do when you're young !!!
Have fun, its a fine boat for what you want.
