re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

If the Islander 28 is anything like the Islander 30, which I would guess it is, you'll find it easy to work on. Mine has been a pleasure to work on, and though I have not sailed her yet, I did motor it across the bay (Chesapeake) using the emergency tiller and she responded well in both forward and reverse - a friend has a Pearson, and the IB30 is broader with more room below - which I prefer. Have not had any experience with Cals, so cannot comment there - but it comes down to what you like!
