Cat 27 is a nice boat for coastal cruising. I don't see any bow sprit so it's likely not a tall rig (good thing). That sprit is a weak point.

Wow a '73 with an A4? I thought they were all outboards at that point. I have a '78.

I am new as well and have just begun an A4 resurrection in a 1978 C27.

I have learned quite a bit in the last two weeks. There are many knowledgeable people here.

Good Luck!
