    E-27 Sheered Goose Neck (1978)

    Hi all, We were recently in a big storm and our goose neck connection sheered from the mast track. I've taken a look though my photos and don't seem to have anything to go back to for reference for a repair. :-( Reaching out to any owners that have an E-27 for a photo or any info from anyone...

    1978 E27 Cutlass Bearing

    Looking for a cutlass bearing for my 1978 E27. I have taken some measurements with a micrometer but a little concerned that the od of the bearing may be off.

    Leaking E27 Port

    Quarter Berth Leak Hey Toddster, Any luck finding your mystery leak? I re-bedded the ports last year to no avail and re-bedded all of the deck hardware. Just completed a fix of the hull/deck joint today but not sure if that was the fix. I'll let you know. If you've tracked yours down...

    1978 e27 Hull Deck Joint

    I had posted some time ago that I was getting to this project. It took some time but I have just made some major repairs and thought I would share my thoughts on the process. I removed the rub rail and mounting bracket. The bracket is in good condition and the rubber is holding up for it's age...
