Re: Fiberglass ..classic??









I bought my first NEW 18' sailboat back in 1981 and the second one New a J24 in 1982 and did well enough on both in resale

Could I afford a newer or even NEW boat YES

Do I want to afford a NEW boat NO it is not really important to me at this point in my life

We find the Cal very capable of doing what we require and I had the ability to do the refit and more important the ability to sequence the job and focus on the things that had to be done

I find the failed projects burned out on stuff that was not required and a LOT OF PEOPLE start out on projects and don't really know enough about which sailboat will meet there needs as they have not invested enough time sailing yet

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
