Remember, you have'nt even ridden in the boat yet, so don't get too excited jus to be let down if it does'nt perform to your expectations. Good luck.

It was a 1980,navy blue,not flake.All 27's were identical except they changed the color and vinyl each year.

Would be interested in the hull#.This is the only blue flake 27 I am aware of and is quite interesting.The May 1979 issue of Powerboat mag had a bown boat on the cover when it awarded it Boat of the Year.
Shoot me a PM or send me an email gregpro50 at hotmail dot com.

For some reason I can't send private messages.
