Which size would you recommend for a 27' trawler weighing in at about 10,000#
The largest one may be big enough for your application. You can also check with Perko directly to see if they would advise you otherwise. It is also more dependent on the lines/pendants you are using as well.

what size boat will this work for?
Was it the 4.5" x 4.5" model? It seems too small to fit a decent size mooring line around it.
I used this on a 32' plywood boat. They bolted to a Double layer of 3/4" with a bit of 5200 adhesive
My was a 50' Flying DutchmanIt worked great
Depends on what it is mounted on.Mine was bolted thru a steel support beam
Better than a big cleat
Cleats are essential for docking lines. Mooring bitts are better for anchor lines, mooring lines and tow lines when needed. The bitts are large enough to handle several lines if needed. I mounted one on my bow deck and a smaller one on the stern deck. The bitts will allow for much larger bolts and screws. It is a good idea to reinforce the deck if possible.
