After several builders asked for a trailerable stretched version of the Spray 22, we produced the Spray 27. This can be built in Multi chine steel, aluminium or wood epoxy as well as in Round Bilge Fibreglass (C-Flex or Airex Foam).
There are two basic layouts - either regular or pilot house - and either can be rigged with a gaff sail plan or as a Bermudan sloop. Both regular Trunk cabin and Pilot house versions are included with the plans.
The SUPER STUDY PLAN PACKAGE has details on all the different construction techniques and includes materials lists, both sail plans and the two different accommodation layouts. All to scale and only $27 plus postage.

Aadland's building of his Spray 27 in Wood Epoxy
The lifelong desire to sail has prompted my present (major) project, a
Spray 27 cutter designed by Bruce Roberts. This is the second smallest of his Spray series
and the larger of the two trailerable ones. A multi-chine plywood design, the cutter can
be built with either marconi or gaff rigs and in either pilot house or conventional
sailboat configuration. Luckily, decisions on those two matters need not be made until
bulkheads are installed, so I have a while yet to decide.
