OOPS!
You are 100% correct.....I must have been at least half-asleep when I typed Rob Perry! (Do I need to "eat my hat" now? If you are familiar with the history of the CAL 9.2 you will get the reference.)

This "CAL 14" does bear a very slight resemblance to the original "NEPTUNE 16" which, although not a CAL, was designed by Bill Lapworth. The Neptune 16 later became the NEWPORT 16 and later the GLOUCESTER 16.

Maybe this boat explains the alleged "CAL 21" made in Austrailia, again, absolutely no connection to the CAL 21 built in the US by JENSEN MARINE. The pic that I saw of an Aussie "CAL 21" looked like a big sister to this "CAL 14".
