cal 21 shaft length

Seriously looking at a cal 21. I am interested in any feedback or advice you have to offer. I have a wife and small children that will sail with me. I also want to be able to singlehand on a nearby lake, but later able to go to the gulf of mexico(by trailer) . Would like to be able to camp on it overnight,etc. Is there another boat you suggest, or is the cal21 as good as I hear.
Also looking at a tanaka 5.5. is that too much or not enough motor for this boat. and what shaft length sould I go for ?
