    Prop for E27

I lost a few rpm's but I can make 6.2kts with an easy cruise at 5kts. The boat's acceleration is also improved. The...

    deck painting and interior fiberglass painting

    E27 Years?

    E27 production years I believe the E27 was produced between 1971 & 1979 where ~1300 were made. They were up to hull numbers in the 500s by 1974. Perhaps someone with more knowledge can comment. Steve
