"Living Out a Dream" by Dave Martin in the Jan/Feb 2008 issue of Good Old Boat magazine (issue #40, pages 28-31)

"Living out a dream: Dave Martin tells of the work he did to make a Cal 25 seaworthy. Key words: designer Bill Lapworth, flush deck, gunwales, companionway, bulkheads, hard doghouse, took out the cockpit, added stringers, revised the V-berth. Youth and poverty turn a stock Cal 25 into a world cruiser"

Dave has had a series of articles published in Good Old Boat that might be of interest.
