Older Cal 30

Hey All,

So, lets try this *AGAIN*. After my last experience letting a good deal slip away through inaction on my part, I'm getting more aggressive in placing an actual offer on a good old boat.

Now there's an older Cal 30 in my neighborhood thats on the market. I haven't been able to get on the boat itself, but its a 1966 Cal 30, which is a year I can barely find any information on at all. Newer engine is what the signs says too. Whats there to look out for this yacht? I intend to use it for Coastal cruising with an occasional poke out to the Bahamas. 5' 8" draft worries me for Bahamas though. Is this boat capable of this kind of usage? Probably want to keep it for 4 years or so to get some sea skills before upgrading to a 40' Cruiser.

Anyway, let the feedback flow!
