Wow, that's really helpful and really coincidental. I just sent an inquiry email to a broker handling an older (1971) Bristol 35 Sloop that sounded like it was just the sort of boat I wanted--slow and stable, but with plenty of creature comforts and can be singlehanded. Thanks so much for setting me straight. I think I'll pass on the Cal.
