I purchased this 27FC to use as a winter home, and now, have purchased a home, so decided to downsize.
Over the course of ownership, I have performed many upgrades, both mechanical and creature comforts.
Formerly, the Little Lady, moored in Punta Gorda, "Fool's Gold" is ready for your enjoyment. It shows a few signs of being a 34 year old trawler, but is in excellent shape, overall.
I will post current photos, when I get back to Stuart, the first week of Nov. These are prior to some of the upgrades.

Available for sea trials early Nov. 2022
