Review Date: Tue October 30, 2007 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $450.00 | Rating: 7 

Pros: low price, sexy classic lines, very fast on a reach and fast down wind
Cons: doesn't point high, fair amount of leeway

This is the most fun of all Cals! low freeboard means you feel like you're going much faster than you really are. But on a windy reach this boat will beat anything in its class of older racer cruisers. Shallow draft with board up means you can anchor close in, and she is trailerable. I have thoroghly enjoyed owning this classic plastic yacht for the past ten years and have come home with many single race and series trophies in the cruiser racing division in So Cal, including some big coastal races such as first place in Santa Barbara to King Harbor against some 70' IOR racers.

Pros: low cost
Cons: needs lots more work to bring it back to snuff

I wrote that review six years ago and still own the boat. I guess I love the boat. 16 years, where did the time go? Great pocket ocean racer!
