If this is any consultation, I had a 1976 CAL 25, The best boat I've ever had. I replaced her with a Catilana 27, she was too tender for the wife. I sailed my CAL for two years starting in 1997. We took a trip from Maumee Bay in Toledo Ohio to Cedar Point in sandusky Ohio. We were fully layden with the water line stripes under water and still doing six knots. Cals are a great boat, designed to preform. on the way back with little air I started the Merc. 9.9outside the channel at Cedar Point and it only used three gallons of gas to get us home. I say it again, Cals are great! Congrats'.
