Read and looked at your post some time ago, but slow in commenting. Your gallery of photos is certainly inspiring. I've not been around this site that long but have come away with a couple impressions. Cal owners seem to love their boats and they elicit little criticism from other boat owners-hmmm? I have a 21' and for as little as it cost me, $2200, I'm not too shy about doing the work myself-if I screw up I'll start over and do it better. Cals seem to be turning into a cheap little secret that nobody talks about, but that with a little work you can have a fine boat for not so much invested. Perhaps that's true of any boat so long out of production. Again, thank you very much for the photo-gallery.
