      > > HI!, new member and just acquired a 272. Curious as to how it will handle. I have a 23' Sovereign with no mast. Bought the Buck to use the mast and rigging. After reading and looking it over, I am reconsidering my plans. The boat needs a little fiberglass work an a paint job on the exterior. It does have an operating diesel an a few soft spots. The more I am around the Buc, the more I am leaning toward putting my efforts into restoring it. I spend alot of time sailing the Tx intracoastal and it should be more comfortable than the Sovereign.
