Would a 27 Nauset built in the early 80's (1983 to be exact) be a cored or solid layup? I assume it is solid from what I have read about early Nausets/Brunos on this forum. I am considering a 27 nauset gasser with a 230 hp mercruiser. Also, thoughts on fuel economy at 12-14 knots would be appreciated. I am not looking to break the bank here. I currently own a 22 footer with a 90 hp Yamaha OB, very economical. Torn on whether to go big or enjoy the portability of my trailerable Novi. I want to go much bigger someday, but that is far off. I would not mind being able to overnight with my family of four in nice weather.
