Howzit HD,
Not sure what you're looking at, but Cal made a lot of good boats. Google "sailboat designs by C. William Lapworth and read up on the 34. We're now on our second Cal and am sold on both the design and construction quality. The wheel may have been added by one of the owners, but for me it's a plus. Try to inspect all the chainplates, bulkheads and thruhulls if can. Look at the keel bolts ,if any and windows, hatches and anything that keeps water out! Check for water damage. Go for it if it's a good price. The 34 's have a huge cockpit and would be fun for a group. Good luck if you go for it.
